Dental implants are known for their longevity, natural appearance and unique ability to avoid loss of bone. If you’re missing the teeth, you’ve probably considered getting implants. You may not have considered what kind of crowns you want to place on top of your implant posts though.
Many dentists offer standard porcelain crowns, which in most cases need to be created off-site and can take days or weeks to produce. However, Dr. Richard Weimar does offer dental crowns from CEREC. These crowns are superior in the following key ways to the lab-made crowns:
CEREC crowns generally have fewer flaws than crowns created by laboratories. Indeed, some experts estimate that CEREC crowns are up to 50 per cent more accurate than their counterparts made from the laboratory. This precision helps make sure your crown fits accurately and comfortably.
CEREC dental crowns don’t require your teeth to receive messy and sometimes faulty impressions. Instead, leading technology is used without any discomfort or mess, to take digital impressions of your teeth. Then the digital impressions are sent to a computer-aided design (CAD) program that sends directions to an on-site mill that will create your new crowns.
While traditional crowns can take days or even weeks to produce in an off-site laboratory, on-site CEREC crowns are created. Your new crowns can be ready to go in as little as five minutes from the time it sends your visual images to the milling machine, due to the advanced technology used to produce them.
CEREC dental crowns are amazingly lifelike and look natural. For the most esthetically pleasing look, they often suit the actual teeth in color.
