At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer CEREC® technology to provide you with a natural-looking crown—and it’s all completed in a single visit. But one of the most commonly asked questions about CEREC crowns is, “Are they worth it?” The answer: Absolutely. Consider five reasons why.
- CEREC Crowns Only Require One Visit
Our in-office CEREC technology will revive your tooth in one visit
CEREC crowns are often referred to as same-day crowns or crowns-in-a-day because you can have your tooth restored in a single visit. The difference between them and traditional crowns is that we make them in our office instead of a lab. We use an in-office milling machine to make the crowns using CAD/CAM technology. After we scan your tooth, the image is uploaded into a computer to provide a digital guideline for a restoration that has a custom fit.
- They Look Natural
At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, one of our cosmetic dentists will select a small black of tooth-colored ceramic that closely matches your natural tooth color and blends seamlessly. Your CEREC crown won’t develop a gray border or dull look from a metal foundation.
- The Cost Is Comparable to Traditional Crowns
CEREC crowns cost about the same as traditional crowns. In-office technology eliminates fees that would be paid to a lab to make your restoration.
- They Are Versatile
Most people receive a dental crown because they have a large cavity, a broken tooth, or a tooth that needs protection after root canal treatment. CEREC crowns are versatile for a variety of imperfections in teeth. When you receive a CEREC crown from one of our dentists at the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, it will look fantastic and mimic a natural tooth.
- They Are Durable
You might be wondering if a crown without a metal foundation is strong enough. CEREC crowns have been extensively tested in a variety of circumstances. They perform just as well as traditional crowns.
