What Are CEREC Crowns?

January 25, 2023 1:45 am

Dental crowns are custom tooth caps we can use for all kinds of restorative treatments, like protecting a cracked tooth or reinforcing a tooth after root canal therapy. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, we can give you a natural-looking dental crown in just one visit!

What are CEREC crowns?

At Advanced Dentistry of Nevada, we utilize CEREC same-day crowns. We design your crown with our CEREC machine and 3D software so it fits over your tooth perfectly. We’re then able to craft the crown on-site right then and there! With traditional crowns, you’d have to wait for a lab to create your crown and send it to your dentist. The whole process takes just one appointment with CEREC technology. These same-day crowns are made from a special dental ceramic so they’re durable, realistic-looking, and comfortable.

How to know you need a crown

Only a dentist can tell for sure if you need a crown. You should schedule a consultation to see if you need treatment if you’re experiencing certain symptoms, such as tooth sensitivity, tooth pain, and/or damaged teeth. Additionally, a crown can cover a severely discolored tooth, even out an irregularly-shaped tooth, and replace a missing tooth by topping a dental implant.

Are CEREC crowns expensive?

If you have dental insurance, your provider may cover some or all of a necessary restoration like a CEREC crown. We also offer an in-house dental membership for uninsured and underinsured patients. For a flat monthly fee, our plan covers preventive dentistry and provides discounts on restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We’ll give you an accurate cost estimate before beginning the CEREC crown process so you aren’t surprised by any out-of-pocket expenses.
