CEREC vs. Traditional Crowns

November 30, 2023 1:09 am

Dental crowns are a common and effective solution when it comes to restoring damaged or decayed teeth. However, with advancements in dental technology, patients now have a choice between traditional crowns and same-day CEREC® crowns. The choice between CEREC and traditional crowns ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences. Below, we compare these two crown options to help you make an informed decision about which is right for your smile.

CEREC Crowns: The Speedy Solution

Same-day CEREC crowns are known for their efficiency and convenience. They are designed and created right in the dental office during a single appointment. This means that you can walk in with a damaged tooth and walk out with a fully restored one, all on the same day.

Traditional Crowns: Tried & True

Traditional crowns have been a staple in restorative dentistry for many years. The process typically involves taking impressions of your teeth, which are then sent to a dental lab for the crown to be fabricated. The entire procedure may take several weeks, during which you may require a temporary crown.

Material Quality & Aesthetics

CEREC and traditional crowns are fabricated from high-quality ceramic materials to provide durability and aesthetics. Traditional crowns are made from high-quality materials but require an extended turnaround time. CEREC crowns are milled from a single block of ceramic, which delivers an accurate fit and excellent strength.

Customization & Precision

Traditional crowns are customized to your specific needs by a dental lab based on impressions and information from your dentist. CEREC technology also offers a high level of customization and precision using 3D imaging and digital design. Because the entire process is completed in-house, the technology allows for immediate adjustments so the patient can enjoy a perfect fit in just one appointment.
