CEREC® Dental Crowns
At Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, we embrace modern dental technology. Not only does it often mean we can make earlier and more accurate diagnoses, but it also provides our patients with comfort and convenience.
Convenience is one of the reasons we are so pleased to offer CEREC same-day dental crowns. This leading-edge technology means we can provide our patients with crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays in just one visit to our dental office.
When you need a ceramic restoration or crown, you can trust cosmetic dentist Matthew Vaccaro, DDS and CEREC technology to deliver a quality product. We look forward to exceeding your expectations every time!
What Is a CEREC Dental Restoration?
CEREC is a CAD/CAM technology that gives our practice the ability to fabricate dental restorations here in our office on the same day of your appointment. This means you will not need to worry about an ill-fitting temporary crown or coming back for a follow-up appointment.
CEREC is the acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. During your procedure, Dr. Vaccaro will scan your teeth to get a digital impression, prepare the tooth to be treated, then place your new restoration—all in one visit to our dental office.
The Benefits of Choosing CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
If you have ever had a traditional dental crown that was made in an outside lab, you will appreciate the benefits of CEREC crowns:
- Digital impressions mean you won’t have to deal with messy paste. We’ll use our state-of-the-art technology to make accurate, comfortable impressions of your teeth.
- You won’t have to deal with a temporary crown while you wait two weeks for the lab to fabricate your crown.
- You only have to come to one dental appointment—and you will leave that same day with your beautiful new restoration. Most people can plan to spend about an hour and a half total at the dentist office when getting their CEREC crown or veneer. About 30 minutes of this will be downtime while we plan and make your dental crown so you can relax.
Dr. Vaccaro would be happy to explain all the benefits of choosing CEREC technology for your restorations.
Do CEREC Dental Crowns and Veneers Look Natural as Good as Those Made Traditionally?
It might almost seem too good to be true that something fabricated while you wait can be as good as something that takes a couple of weeks. But rest assured that CEREC restorations look and feel just like your natural teeth. Unlike the porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, you might have received in the past—identifiable by the telltale dark, metal margin at the gum line—CEREC crowns are made from metal-free porcelain. They look and function just like your natural teeth. No one will even know you’ve had dental work done—unless you tell them!
CEREC crowns can also be stained and glazed in our oven to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
