Unfortunately, our teeth can get damaged over time. If you think about it, they sustain significant wear and tear from biting, chewing, and gnawing at foods daily. And despite our best efforts to maintain a good oral care routine at home, sometimes our teeth need additional support, which can come in the form of a dental crown. Crowns protect our teeth, helping to keep them safe and strong for years. But when many patients think of dental crowns, they think of the inconvenience of multiple trips to the dentist.

We’re here to tell you that CEREC same day crowns are a game changer and that inconvenience is no longer a factor.

What are CEREC same day crowns?

Let’s start with the basics to ensure we’re all on the same page as to what a CEREC same day crown is. After all, CEREC has a lot of letters and must stand for something. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC same day crowns in Boise, Idaho, are efficient and technologically advanced crowns that can be custom-made for a patient all in one appointment.

This means no more multiple appointments, making the entire process more convenient than ever. Further, CEREC is made of solid ceramic, meaning it will last between 10 and 15 years when properly cared for with an excellent at-home oral care routine and regular visits to the dentist for a dental cleaning.

But CEREC same day crowns in Boise have many other benefits too.

1. CEREC crowns are very precise.

Due to computer-aided technology, CEREC crowns fit perfectly. This means no gooey putty impressions; instead our state-of-the-art technology takes a precise, 3D image of your tooth to ensure the end result is fitted exactly. And, they look and feel just like your natural teeth.

2. They are minimally invasive.

CEREC’s high-quality nature means the entire treatment is less invasive. This means fewer materials are needed, less time is required in the dental chair, and more money is saved in the long run. This comforts patients who want the best treatment without unnecessary pain, discomfort, or expense.

3. Less waiting and no temporary restoration.

We said it before and we’ll say it again. With CEREC, the computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and milling machine allow your new crown to be made while you wait. There is no need for a temporary restoration. This also means you don’t need to return for a second appointment to fit your permanent crown. CEREC crowns are an excellent option for today’s busy parents, especially younger families with active kids.

4. CEREC crowns look and feel just like your natural tooth.

No one wants a tooth restoration that will make their mouth feel unnatural. With CEREC, you can rest assured that not only will your mouth feel back to normal in just a few days (without the pain that led you to the dentist), but your new CEREC crown will blend in seamlessly with your remaining natural teeth.

5. Restore your tooth function.

CEREC crowns work to protect your damaged teeth, keeping them free from further infection and restoring their function. This means that, before you know it, you’ll be able to chew and use your tooth just like you did before.

How are CEREC crowns different from traditional crowns?

For the most part, there are few differences between CEREC crowns and traditional crowns. The differences are primarily in some of those benefits we mentioned above. CEREC crowns allow for same-day treatment, no need for impressions with gooey dental putty, and you won’t need a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent one to be created for you.

On the other hand, there are a few situations where CEREC crowns cannot be used. Teeth that have been broken or damaged below the gumline can’t be scanned accurately with CEREC scanners, and in these cases, a traditional crown is the right solution. And though CEREC crowns are highly durable as they are made of ceramic, they are not quite as durable as their conventional counterparts with a metal base and porcelain tooth.

Most patients have found that the convenience offered by CEREC single-visit dental crowns far outweigh any potential loss in durability. With no need for a bulky temporary crown, fewer visits required, and the ability to get back to life with restored tooth and mouth function quickly, CEREC is genuinely a game changer in the dental industry.
