Cerec Crowns

Imagine that you could have a Crown or a Bridge done in one single visit?

Affinity Dental Care takes pride in investing in the best for the future and in 2016 Affinity Dental Care invested in a CEREC Machine which means we can offer a faster and more comfortable treatment. Using this machine to make a crown means that you no longer need an impression or a temporary crown; we can do it in just one visit!

How is it done in just one visit?

There are four stages to making the crown or bridge using the Cerec Machine. An appointment will be scheduled for a period of time in the surgery. In place of an impression, the dentist will scan the tooth using digital impression using a Cerec Omnicam. After analysing the scan, the dentist will then spend time designing the crown. Once the Crown or Bridge is designed, it will be sent to the CEREC Machine to be milled. You can watch this happen in our hallway whilst you wait. Once the CEREC Machine has finished milling it will be time to fit the crown. If the dentist has used a specific material different to normal then another stage would be needed for the Crown or Bridge to be glazed. This is done by putting the tooth/teeth in a furnace.

The benefits of a Cerec Crown

  • No impressions
  • No temporary fix
  • No need to have it fitted two weeks later
  • One single crown can be fitted in just under two hours

Dental crowns can improve your oral health and also improve the appearance of your smile. You may need a crown for many reasons and this could be due to dental decay or trauma, having a crown is a common tooth restoration procedure that is recommended worldwide by dentists.

Same Day Dental Crowns are Convenient
For many patients, this is the greatest benefit of CEREC same day crowns. You no longer have to wait a few weeks for your crown to be sent off to a lab and returned, meaning you would have needed multiple visits. Now patients need one simple visit and it can be done here on-site.

No More Temporary Dental Crowns
If you have had a crown before, you will understand that often traditional lab made crowns require a dentist to place a temporary crown whilst you wait for the lab to make your crown. Having the benefit of CEREC same day crowns means there is no need for a temporary crown.

No more More Messy Dental impressions
Traditionally dental crowns require the use of impression trays. Many patients do not like having dental impressions as they can be messy and very uncomfortable. With same day dental Crowns, digital tools eliminate the need for these trays as your dentist works on designing your crown.

Remember: It's important to remember that your dentist reserves the right to decide if your case may have to be lab fabricated instead.
