How Does Same-Day Crown Technology Work?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology to restore your new tooth with a white crown made with a strong porcelain material that is compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive, and plaque-resistant.

To begin the appointment, your teeth are given a light dusting of reflective powder. Dr. Parker uses a small camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This 3-D optical impression is displayed on a color computer screen.

We then use CAD technology to design a digital model of your new tooth. The software can even be used to create a mirror-image twin of the same tooth on the other side of your mouth, for the most natural-looking result possible.

After the design process is complete, CAM technology follows by the use of a high precision robotic milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth. Once the crown’s fit has been verified, and any necessary aesthetic enhancements have been made to the crown’s surface (staining and glazing), the crown will be bonded to your tooth.

CEREC has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The process and product have been proven to be precise, safe, and effective.

This amazing technology eliminates all of the errors and added wait that exist with the traditional crown method.

Function of a Dental Crown

  • Cover imperfections of the smile
  • Help in repairing a tooth after trauma has occurred
  • Provide structure to a broken or chipped tooth to keep it from breaking further
  • Restore a dental implant
  • Provide protection for a tooth
  • Cover a permanently stained tooth
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy

Crowns strengthen weak teeth by holding the tooth together. They are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like ceramic or porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. They are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal.

Also, when decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated.

Same day crowns also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to it’s natural appearance. Take a look at our Cosmetic Dentistry page to see how easy and affordable it is change the look of your smile with natural looking crowns or veneers.


How to Care for Your Same-Day Crown

Crowned teeth require the same conscientious care as your natural teeth.

Be sure to floss and brush all of your teeth, restored and natural, each day to reduce the buildup of dental plaque.

Remember to schedule your professional cleanings at one of the best Beaverton dental practices in SW Portland. Routine dental cleanings are the basis to maintain the integrity and health of your teeth and crown.

Wear a nightguard if you have a grinding habit to protect your teeth and your investment. Taking excellent care of a same-day crown will guarantee that it will last you many years to come.
