5 ways that the CEREC same day dental crown differs from other types of crown

When making the decision to have a dental crown, you will want to be fully informed of the options available so that you are choosing the best crown for you. People are often confused about the types of crown on offer and few actually know about the differences between them. Here we look at the key advantages a CEREC crown can offer.


Same Day

Same Day

Probably the biggest difference between CEREC and other crowns is that the CEREC crown is designed and produced the same day. They are produced at the practice using a 3D printer and fitted then and there which means just a single trip to the dentist.


Strong materials

All crowns are made of strong material in order to be as hard wearing as possible. However, CEREC crowns are extremely hard wearing and you won't need to treat them any differently to your natural teeth.


Practically pain free

The CEREC crown is cemented in so that it is less likely to cause any issues of discomfort. With other types of crowns there is more likely to be tenderness around the gum region.


Natural looks

Crowns made at a dental lab are produced in one colour, but CEREC crowns can be customised on the spot to produce a more natural looking tooth colour.


Use of CAD/CAM technology

The technology used to produce this type of crown is fully developed and highly accurate which means a much more precise fit, and ultimately, comfort for the wearer.
