Not every patient can wait weeks or months to get a new dental crown. Some patients with hectic schedules and people who have CEREC Crownsimportant life events planned need a faster solution. The dental team at Hobble Creek Dental Care in Springville offers CEREC crowns to patients who are in need of a crown fast. Learn more about CEREC and the advantages of this modern dental solution so that you can be informed in advance of your next dentist appointment. 

About CEREC Crowns
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a modern dental technology that allows your dentist to create a custom crown in one appointment. They are often called “same day crowns.” The dentist adjusts the tooth’s shape into what is called an abutment, then takes a series of 3D computer images of the tooth so that the CEREC machine can create a perfect custom crown for the patient. The crown is bonded in place with a dental resin to complete the procedure.

CEREC Is Fast and Convenient
The main advantage of getting a CEREC crown by your Springville dentist is that it is a fast solution. With a standard crown, you have to go to at least two or three appointments—the initial exam, the preparation appointment, and then the final appointment to install the finished crown. Thanks to CEREC technology, you can have the tooth prepped and crowned in just one convenient visit.

No Impressions Needed
Some patients have a gag reflex that makes it very difficult to take normal impressions using plaster material. With CEREC, 3D images are used so plaster molds aren’t necessary. This is a relief for patients who have dental anxieties.

CEREC Creates a More Reliable Crown 
Another benefit of CEREC is that it creates a more reliable, quality crown. The machine is very accurate at carving a crown that will fit perfectly into your smile. The dentist doesn’t have to make many adjustments before installing the crown.
