What are CEREC same-day crowns?

CEREC, an acronym for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, is a groundbreaking dental procedure that simplifies the traditional, often lengthy, crown process. Dr. Gobran utilizes this advanced technology to craft custom-fit, aesthetically pleasing ceramic crowns within a single visit. The precision and quality of CEREC crowns are comparable to traditional ones but with the added benefit of convenience and time efficiency.

What can I expect during my dental crown procedure?

Your experience with CEREC at Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates begins with a thorough consultation to assess your dental health. During the procedure, the affected tooth is prepared, and a digital scan is taken to create a precise 3D model of your tooth. This model is then used by the CEREC machine to craft your custom crown from high-quality ceramic material. The entire process, from preparation to fitting and bonding the crown, is completed in just one appointment, allowing you to leave our office with a fully restored, beautiful smile.

How durable are CEREC same-day dental crowns?

Unlike traditional crowns, which might require adjustments or re-fittings, CEREC crowns are crafted with precision to fit your tooth perfectly from the start. This accurate fit, combined with the robustness of the material, often results in a longer lifespan for the crown. Additionally, the advanced technology used in creating CEREC crowns minimizes the risk of cracks and chips, making them a reliable choice for restoring dental health. At Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, we have seen firsthand how these ceramic crowns stand the test of time, providing patients with a durable and lasting dental solution.

How do you care for CEREC dental crowns?

Maintaining your CEREC crown is straightforward and aligns closely with standard dental care practices. Here's a quick guide:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss carefully around the crown to prevent plaque buildup
  • Avoid chewing hard foods or ice, which can damage the crown
  • Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings with Dr. Monica Gobran to monitor the health of your ceramic crown and overall oral health
