Are same-day crowns better than laboratory made crowns?
Both same-day porcelain crowns and lab-made porcelain crowns have their pros and cons. Deciding factors often involve budget (how much you are prepared to pay for a new tooth cap/crown) the position of the crown (if the crown required is on a front tooth, a laboratory made crown will usually give slightly superior aesthetic results).
How long does a same-day crown take to complete?
A same-day crown, technically speaking, takes far less than a day, requiring only two hours to complete.
Why do people choose a same-day crown?
Same-day crowns have many benefits for patients. The process takes far little time and effort, costs less than normal crowns, is more environmentally friendly and due to the 3-D technology we use, provides you with an exact fit, and superior, long-lasting results.
What does CEREC stand for?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. (US spelling)
Who needs a dental crown?
People need dental crowns for all sorts of reasons. Crown acts as a cap, completely covering the visible part of your tooth. A dental crown can be useful in many cases; for example if you have a cracked or badly damaged tooth, an unsightly tooth filled with fillings, a tooth left vulnerable after root canal therapy, a badly decayed tooth or as a replacement tooth if you have a dental implant.
Do same-day crowns last forever?
We don’t like to promise that anything lasts forever, but with proper care, a same-day porcelain crown should last for at least 10-15 years.
Does a CEREC crown look natural?
Yes, ceramic crowns look natural looking, like one of your existing teeth. We’ll customise the appearance so that it mimics the colours and contours of your existing teeth, blending seamlessly with your smile. However, if you need a crown on a front tooth, a porcelain veneer may be recommended as porcelain does give more superior aesthetic results.
