The proper use and appearance of damaged teeth can completely be restored with the help of dental crowns and teeth fillings. These restorations are used to solve problems such as decayed teeth, broken teeth, or chipped teeth. Crowns and fillings improve the appearance of the teeth, and can also successfully restore the healthy function of these affected teeth. Damaged teeth are protected from further harm or damage when they are restored with crowns and fillings.
Given the benefits of getting dental crowns and dental fillings to restore damaged teeth, there are some people who are hesitant to go for these treatments. This is mainly because of the length of time it usually takes for these teeth restorations to be completed and become fully usable. It ordinarily takes several trips to the dentist to have a dental crown treatment completed; in some cases, a temporary restoration is put in place while waiting for the permanent crown to be manufactured in a separate dental laboratory. These temporary restorations are often uncomfortable inside the mouth, and can be a turn off for those who are looking to have their damaged teeth problems solved.
CEREC technology now makes it possible for the teeth restorations to be created and put in place in just one day. The dental crowns and fillings are created onsite, inside the dental clinic while the patient waits for the treatment to be done. The restorations are created using a special 3D milling machine that the dentist operates, and the patient can even see the actual creation of the crowns or fillings. The overall treatment time is significantly decreased because there is no need to send dental impressions to a separate dental laboratory, where the dental crown will be made. What used to take a few days to be created, and several dental appointments to be completed, will now take only one visit to the dentist to be fully functional.
In just about an hour’s time, porcelain dental crowns and teeth fillings can be ready inside the dental clinic. This means that a patient can look forward to a significantly improved smile in just one dental appointment, compared to the days or weeks that were usually spent waiting for the teeth restorations to be created and fitted inside the mouth. There is also no need to get uncomfortable dental impressions that can trigger the gag reflex, as an intraoral camera is used to obtain precise images of the oral cavity to be used to create the teeth restorations.
Adjustments to the dental crown or dental filling are easily made with the help of CEREC technology. The dentist can make quick adjustments to the shade or colour of the crown or filling onsite as the patient waits, to make sure that the restorations match the exact shade of the rest of the patient’s teeth. The result is a completely natural looking smile restored by virtually undetectable dental restorations.
