Dental restorations and cosmetic treatments with prosthetics used to take a long time. For instance, if a patient needed a new crown or veneer, they would need at least two visits just to get the impressions and leave enough time for a lab to create the restorative device. Luckily, advancements to dental technology have made same-day restorations possible. Come to Wheelock and Associates to get your CEREC® same-day dental crowns in Sioux City!
What is CEREC®?
CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. This revolutionary system uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to create dental restorations from ceramic materials. The biggest benefit of using this tool is that it can create a device the same day of the initial visit.
Also, CEREC® uses advanced scanning technology to design the restoration, eliminating the need for messy impressions. These one-visit restorations use high-quality porcelain that matches your tooth color, so your new teeth will look beautiful and natural for years to come.
What are CEREC® Same-Day Crowns?
Dental crowns are small caps that look and function like real teeth. They can completely encircle a damaged tooth to prevent further harm or serve as a dental implant's visible component. Crowns are usually cemented or bonded onto the tooth for long-lasting results.
The fundamental difference between traditional crowns and same-day crowns is simply the time it takes to complete the procedure. CEREC® crowns can be designed and completed during the same appointment.
