What are CEREC crowns and what makes them different from traditional crowns?
Making choices when it comes to your dentistry can raise many questions. When you require dental crowns in our Montrose, CO dental office, you have a couple of options to choose from.
Both traditional crowns and CEREC crowns offer many benefits and here are some of the benefits of each:
Same-Day CEREC Crowns
CEREC is a chairside restoration that does not require the intervention of a dental lab. This means a fast, reliable result for you. Dr. Cory will digitally scan your tooth instead of taking an impression. Instead of sending the data off to our dental lab, he will use our in-office software to create your dental crown. Each crown will be glazed and have the proper shading to blend in with your smile.
Lab-Created Dental Crowns
CEREC crowns are great for patients who want a tooth-colored restoration on the same day. If, however, you require a gold crown or a porcelain fused to metal crown, we will recommend a lab created restoration. CEREC is limited to ceramic restorations and if you have a strong bite or misaligned teeth that may not work best for you.
Come in and discuss crowns in our Montrose, CO dental office with Dr. Ken Cory. He will always make the recommendation that will work best for you.
