Advances in dental technology are occurring at a rapid pace, and CEREC crown technology is one of the most impressive.
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction and streamlines the process of having a dental crown placed. Instead of a crown that must be fabricated by an off-site lab and takes weeks to produce, CEREC crowns are designed and created right here in our Northborough dental office.
Not only are CEREC crowns efficient, but there are also advantages that make the process more comfortable for you. If you have had a crown placed in the past, you may remember sitting with a big metal tray filled with messy impression paste in your mouth while you wait for the material to set. The CEREC process does away with this step because we take digital impressions that are far more accurate and easy to produce.
Also, since your crowns are produced during one visit, you don’t have to deal with multiple injections or the uncomfortable process of having a temporary crown placed and then removed during the next visit.
CEREC technology is relatively new to most people, and we understand you may have other questions. If you would like to see if our same-visit crowns are the right choice for you, please call Northborough Family Dental, and we will be happy to arrange a consultation at your convenience.
