Cerec Dentist Pompano Beach, FL

Many dentists turn to CEREC® crowns when a patient needs to repair weakening or decaying teeth. A crown is a way to repair a damaged tooth. It can be used to repair weakening teeth and hold together parts of a cracked tooth. 

This type of crown offers a very affordable, effective way to save a tooth. It stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This type of crown uses CAD/CAM technology to create a perfect fit crown for your tooth. 

Your dentist will use CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) to take pictures of your tooth. The crown is made from a ceramic block and is very strong and reliable. 

What are the benefits of a CEREC crown?

CEREC crowns are very affordable. Its pricing is only a few hundred dollars more than a traditional crown. A traditional crown is made from porcelain or porcelain fused metal. Ceramic looks more natural and will last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. 

Patients who choose this crown will be told to avoid biting down on hard objects and try their best to avoid grinding their teeth. 

This crown can also be done in a same-day procedure setting, allowing the patient to get back to life as normal sooner than they may have expected. 

Why would you need a crown?

A patient could need a crown for several reasons. Keeping your regularly scheduled appointments and cleanings with your dental provider is important. It is at these visits where any oral health issue is detected. 

Your dentist needs to be able to catch any dental-related issues early on so they can treat and stop the problem from progressing any further, and in some cases, they can reverse the damage already done. Early detection is key when it comes to your oral health. 

A crown is needed when you have tooth decay weakened your tooth. A crown will cover the damage and stop it from spreading. If not too severely gone, a broken tooth can also be fixed with a crown. The crown is made to hold together the pieces of a cracked tooth. 

Talk to your dentist

Be sure always to ask your dentist any questions or concerns you have with your oral health. They want their patients to keep their natural smiles for as long as possible. Dentists want their patients to live pain-free, healthy lives. 

Establish a healthy oral hygiene routine early on and make it a habit not to forget. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing will earn you a lifetime of pleasant dental visits.
