How Do CEREC® Crowns And Lab-Made Crowns Differ?
A dental crown is designed to strengthen and repair a damaged or decayed tooth for a durable, natural looking restoration. Traditionally, your dentist would take a mold of your teeth, have a third-party laboratory create your custom crown, and then schedule a second appointment to affix the crown to the affected tooth. However, with our innovative CEREC® system (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), our patients at Austin Dental Spa can improve the form and function of their smile in just one office visit.
CEREC® crowns are also custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile and support the natural structure of your tooth with beautiful results. With CEREC® technology, our dentists can use 3D imaging technology to take a digital impression of your teeth for more precise restorations. Then a chairside milling machine can be used to complete your crown during your visit, allowing you to save time and see your results in a single day.
