Cerec Same Day Dental Crowns in Akron, OH

If you were shopping online, would you choose two-week shipping instead of same-day shipping if they cost the same amount of money? Of course, no one would choose to wait unnecessarily without even saving money in the process. With the arrival of CEREC technology, gone are the days of waiting two weeks for traditional crowns. We are not exaggerating—you can have a CEREC crown fabricated and attached to your tooth correctly in a single visit and be on your way out the door.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC, a new cutting-edge form of dental restorations, stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The primary difference between a traditional dental crown and the CEREC same-day crown is CEREC’s computer-aided design. The procedure uses CAD/CAM technology that forms the crown to an exact digital model of your teeth. CEREC then creates the crown from a block of ceramic while you briefly wait in the dentist’s office for the fabrication to finish. This process means you do not have to wear temporary crowns or end up with an ugly metal and porcelain crown that stands out from the rest of your teeth. CEREC crowns consist of a high-quality ceramic material in various shades of white and serve as permanent crowns that preserve the look of a natural tooth. This type of dental restoration does not compromise on protecting your teeth and can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.

Are CEREC Dental Crowns Right For Me?

As with any other dental procedure, your dentist must evaluate your situation to offer judgment on whether or not CEREC crowns work for you. CEREC technology provides all of the same benefits you would get from a traditional crown, just with an accelerated fabrication process.  We recommend double-checking, but most dental insurance plans cover CEREC crowns just as they would traditional crowns. In most cases, the only difference is that CEREC saves you time. Experience the speed of CEREC technology and get your teeth covered on the same day you walk into the dentist’s office.
