Dental crowns have been around for more than a century. The use of prosthetics for preserving a tooth is an old technique. It is affordable and quite painless.
If your tooth crown becomes chipped or cracked, it is a conventional procedure to have a crown placed on it.
A dental crown is usually made of gold, porcelain, or zirconium and acts as a cap. Unlike root canal treatment which also involves a crown, in this procedure, the pulp is not removed.
The prosthetic is fixed on top of the damaged tooth and looks completely natural. An artificial crown prevents further damage to the tooth structure.
The problem with more traditional materials is that two visits were required.
During the first one, the dentist prepared the tooth, ensured that no root canal was needed, and took measurements for the crown. An impression was made by biting down hard on a soft mold.
A temporary crown was placed while the fabrication of the actual crown took place. After a week or so, you had to visit the clinic once more, and the permanent crown was fixed on your tooth.
Advancing technology has made it far easier for you to maintain your pearly whites.
The latest in the field of dental care is the use of CEREC crowns. CEREC is the acronym for – Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. That’s quite a mouthful (no pun intended).
The use of CEREC technology makes the entire process far shorter. In fact, if done right, it takes no more than two hours.
There is no hassle of multiple visits. You don’t have to be careful while eating and drinking with a temporary crown, always afraid that it might fall off.
The new technology uses CAD/CAM or computer-aided design and manufacturing.
The tooth that is going to be capped is digitally mapped. It is photographed with the help of a special camera.
Using 3D software, the outline is mapped. No impression is necessary.
The computer then crafts a single block of ceramic to the required specifications. It takes about 20 minutes to complete the task. Thereafter the dentist cements it on top of the tooth.

There are none that would prevent you from getting a CEREC crown. Of course, metal crowns such as those made of gold and chrome-nickel are stronger.
But they are hardly used anymore, and the comparison is not a fair one. At this moment, CEREC crowns are the best treatment possible if you need relief from toothache.
