posted: Oct. 12, 2021.
If you have a damaged tooth and are in need of a dental crown, you can benefit from visiting Dr. Ayanna Poindexter and Dr. Chanel Trice of Ryerson Smiles in Brooklyn, NY, to get same-day crowns.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Brooklyn, NY?
Dental crowns are traditionally custom-made in a lab and then used to cover a damaged tooth. This process takes several weeks, but CEREC crowns are ceramic crowns that can be made and installed in just one day. Instead of a physical mold, digital imaging is used to create a scan of the teeth and measure your new crown. Then the crown is fabricated in our office and installed within a matter of hours instead of weeks.
How Does CEREC Technology Work?
Same-day crowns are made possible with the help of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM).
What Are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crowns have many benefits over traditional dental crowns, including:
- Convenience- You won’t have to spend time going back and forth to your dentist’s office as you would with traditional crowns. CEREC crowns are completed in just one appointment
- A perfect fit- Precise computer-generated measuring means that your crown is a perfect fit
- Blending in with your smile- CEREC same-day crowns in Brooklyn, NY, offer a precise color match, allowing them to blend in seamlessly with your smile. Your restored tooth will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth
How Long Do CEREC Crowns Last?
CEREC crowns typically last anywhere between 10 to 15 years. It is important that patients with CEREC crowns avoid biting down on non-edible items like plastic packaging or grinding their teeth to help prolong the life of the crown. We recommend good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing daily to keep your new crown in good shape and the rest of your smile healthy.
