CEREC Porcelain Crowns in Grapevine
At Mason Dental, we invest in cutting-edge technology to make our procedures more comfortable, more efficient, and more precise. By utilizing modern technology and keeping our office up-to-date, we are continually learning new ways to improve our methods and make our dentistry services more comfortable and convenient for our patients.
Normally, traditional porcelain crowns are made from a composite model of the patient’s teeth. They are constructed over a period of days or weeks in a lab, then sent back to the dentist office for permanent placing. In the meantime, patients must wear temporary crowns. But with our CEREC same-day porcelain crown machine, we can create dental crown restorations right here in our office during a single visit.
How Does It Work?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC process incorporates a camera, a computer, and a milling machine all into one instrument that can take high-resolution images of your mouth and design and construct a beautiful restoration with great efficiency. Here’s what the process looks like:
- When you come in for a restoration, the CEREC software will take a 3D image of your tooth, and from there, we design a crown with optimal comfort and aesthetics to match your existing teeth.
- The CEREC machine will then use computer-aided manufacturing technology to construct your porcelain restoration while you relax in our office.
- When construction is complete, you’ll be fitted with your new permanent crown and your smile will be complete!
