Having a cerec crown is beneficial for a number of reasons. In the hands of a skilled dentist, it is extremely accurate. We have found that a CEREC crown requires little to no adjustment prior to fitting in the mouth. Second, because it is a digital scan, it means that a CEREC crown does not require impression materials or trays - that means no goop in your mouth! Third, with a many different choices in materials and colour, we will select a tooth colour that mimics your tooth and looks natural. They are bonded to your tooth are made of the strongest dental materials available and will last you many years to come. Finally, CEREC crowns are CONVENIENT for you, the patient. Because a CEREC crown can be done in one appointment, you do not need to take time off work or school for a second insertion appointment - your crown will be inserted on the same day.
