Before the restoration treatment is done, we need to do a thorough oral examination to make sure this procedure is your best option. If your tooth is only slightly chipped or damaged, we may recommend a filling instead. If we clear you for CEREC, we will prep you accordingly. We use a local numbing agent so the area around the affected tooth is fully numb. We then remove the decay and clean the tooth. From there, we use CEREC technology and create your new crown.
What is a CEREC crown?
CEREC is short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This procedure uses a computer and machine to create a crown that fits your damaged tooth. We use CAD/CAM technology to take an image of your tooth, then use these images to make a digital model. We then use a machine to mill your crown from a ceramic block. This machine is also able to perfectly match the shade of your natural teeth. All of this is done in just one appointment.
Caring For Your CEREC Crown
After the procedure is complete, you should know that any sensitivity you experience a few days after is completely normal. You need to avoid sticky, chewy foods for a couple days. Any hard foods that can crack your teeth should also be avoided. As usual, continue brushing your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. If you use mouthwash, buy a fluoride based one. You can also choose a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. Taking care of your teeth will keep you from having to come back and have more dental work done. Besides brushing and flossing, keep up with your scheduled cleaning and dental exam appointments.
How Long Do CEREC Crowns Last?
CEREC crowns are designed to last for years because they are made of extremely durable porcelain. The issues we see with having to repair crowns comes with poor oral hygiene, which leads to decay to the underlying tooth, bone and gums. If you take care of your teeth, your crown should last for decades.
