CEREC Crowns and Dental Implants: Why You Need Both

Dental assistant using cerec milling machine for dental implants in San Diego, CADental implants are well-known for their longevity, natural appearance and unique ability to prevent bone loss. If you’re missing teeth, you’ve most likely considered receiving implants. However, you may not have considered what type of crowns you want placed on top of your implant posts. Many dentists offer standard porcelain crowns, which need to be created off-site in most cases and can take days or weeks to make. Drs. Lawrence Addleson, Douglas Campbell and David Landau, however, offer CEREC dental crowns. These crowns are superior to lab-made crowns in the following key ways:

  1. Quality

    CEREC crowns generally contain fewer flaws than lab-created crowns. In fact, some experts estimate that CEREC crowns are up to 50 percent more accurate than their lab-made counterparts. This accuracy helps ensure that your crown fits precisely and comfortably.

  2. Convenience

    CEREC dental crowns don’t require you to receive messy and sometimes flawed impressions of your teeth. Instead, leading technology is used to take digital impressions of your teeth without any discomfort or mess. The digital impressions are then sent to a computer aided design (CAD) program which sends directions to an on-site mill that creates your new crowns.

  3. Time

    While traditional crowns can take days or even weeks to create in an off-site lab, CEREC crowns are created on-site. Thanks to the advanced technology used to create them, your new crowns can be ready to go in as little as five minutes from the time your digital impressions are sent to the milling machine.

  4. Appearance

    CEREC dental crowns are extremely lifelike and natural-looking. They are also color-matched to your existing teeth for the most aesthetically appealing appearance.
