The Top Benefits of CEREC From One Visit Dentistry

February 16, 2024

Do you believe you need crowns in your mouth but are concerned about the time and preparation it will take to get one of the traditional varieties? Thankfully, you now have CEREC crowns that can be made in a single visit to your dentist’s office. The dental crown will be made by using advanced CAD/CAM technology to take an image and to create a permanent crown that will be ready to be placed within a couple of hours. This is a speedy procedure that can be made in the house to match your existing teeth perfectly. It is also convenient because you are spared from providing messy impressions and wait for 2 to 3 weeks before the crown can be placed in your mouth.

Benefits of CEREC Dental Crowns

When you choose CEREC crowns, you are giving yourself an opportunity to avail multiple benefits apart from the fact that the process will be completed quickly. The procedure will be completed from the beginning to the end in approximately two hours. Your appointment at Smile by Design will begin with an examination of your mouth, after which the procedure of milling, imaging, restoration, and placement over your tooth with strong cement will be completed.

Choosing CEREC crowns prevents the need to provide messy impressions of your tooth and wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown for a couple of weeks. CEREC procedure for crowns is comfortable and painless because the images are obtained from the CAD/CAM machine. The crown created will match your teeth perfectly and will be better than the one created at a laboratory. You also have the option to choose from over 17 tooth shades without being concerned about any bulky porcelain, metal, or black lines that providers of regular crowns generally use. The crowns are designed and placed when you are in the chair, and the procedure is completely non-invasive. The dentist makes the necessary adjustments after the images have been taken before creating the eventual crown. You will be witnessing the procedure as you would be in the chair to notice that this method does not require any plaster casts to be dispatched to a laboratory where a technician who has never observed the patient conducts the designing.

CEREC Is Also Beneficial For Patients Suffering from Sleep Apnea

Many people are suffering from the problem of sleep apnea, which causes them to snore and disrupt their sleep, as well as that of their partners. They are looking for treatments for this condition, which until this moment were only available with sleep clinics or dentists who also specialized in oral appliances. Dentists were providing an oral appliance in the form of a night guard in consultation with sleep physicians as sleep apnea treatment because the appliance pushed the patient’s lower jaw into a forward position, helping them breathe properly when sleeping. Here again, people affected by the problem had to wait until the dentist designed a night guard for them using traditional methods.

This problem may soon be overcome by dentists who are prepared to adopt 3-D printing with CEREC at a faster pace. Dentists who designed just 10-night guards every month are attempting to figure out how they can benefit from CEREC, which allows them to have a 3-D image of the patient’s mouth, helping them to deliver better sleep apnea treatment faster. Certain manufacturers have announced that they will release a clear resin for night guards. Therefore, people suffering from the problem of snoring, which could be an indicator of sleep apnea, will soon begin to benefit from CAD/CAM technology, which CEREC uses for developing images of patients’ mouths.

Dentists are already using CEREC technology to develop dental crowns, and the time when the technology will be beneficial for developing night guards is close. As more technological advances are introduced into cosmetic dentistry, it is certain that people will have access to faster treatments and will not be required to wait for months or years before they can witness an improvement in their appearance and smile. These advances will make it easier for dentists to provide treatments demanded by people at short notice and improve their workflow.
