How much does a Cerec Crown cost?

June 30, 2021

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.

What Is a Dental Crown?

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.

CEREC Crowns – A huge leap forward

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.

What Is the Process?

At Natural Smiles, our dental care professionals offer the finest care possible. When you walk in to get a CEREC crown from us, you get prompt and timely treatment.

  • At first, the dentist would examine your teeth, both visually and with the help of oral x-rays.
  • If they determine that a crown is what you need, an oral camera will capture an image.
  • The image would be scanned and modifications made by the dentist.
  • The specifications would then be sent to the milling machine for fabrication.
  • The milling is done on high-quality ceramic ingots. If you desire, you can see your new teeth taking shape.
  • After the procedure, minor adjustments are made if needed to the new crown.
  • The dentist then fixes it on your old tooth. It is the same shade as your remaining teeth.

Once you walk out, there is no possible way for anyone to tell that you have an artificial cap on one of your teeth.

The process is simple, painless, and requires less time than a soccer game.

Advantages of CEREC Crowns

  1. CEREC Crowns minimize the loss of dental material. Since a traditional crown is created from a mold, it is difficult to fix it. A mold fabrication is imprecise, and the natural enamel has to be shaved to provide a snug fit. With CEREC Crowns, the situation is reversed. Very little enamel needs to be shaved off. In fact, CEREC Crowns work best with more enamel, not less.
  2. The time required is a fraction of what it used to be. Waiting a week or ten days for the permanent crown can be frustrating. With a temporary crown, you have to be careful when eating. Chew too hard, and it might fall off or, even worse, be swallowed. In addition, there are multiple visits. At least two visits are necessitated. If the crown causes discomfort more are required to fix it correctly. CEREC Crowns removes this obstacle.
  3. CEREC Crowns are durable and last for years. The perfect fit ensures that there is no crack. Do you know that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the human body? We humans can exert a force of 70 pounds per square inch with every bite. If the crown is misaligned even slightly, it causes dental problems, extractions, root canals, and the like. A CAD/CAM process ensures a consistent and precise fit.

Are There Any Disadvantages?

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.
