CALABASAS, Calif., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Esteemed dentist, Dr. Jacqueline Subka,
Dental crowns are "caps" for teeth that restore strength, shape, and color. Crowns cover teeth that are chipped, worn down, discolored, or misshaped, in addition to protecting a tooth after a root canal or restoring a dental implant. Traditional dental crowns require a multi-step process, beginning with modifying the tooth structure and taking impressions with goopy material. Next, the impressions are sent to a dental lab where technicians design and fabricate the dental crown. While this two to three-week process takes place, the patient must wait with an ill-fitting temporary crown. If the permanent crown comes back with any structural defects, it is sent back to the lab, or the process begins again, causing more inconvenience and discomfort for the patient.
CEREC technology, on the other hand, has revolutionized this process entirely. Using CEREC, a dentist can digitally scan the tooth to gather high-quality images. These images are input into a software system with automatic detectors that help improve the precision of the final design. Once the dental crown is created digitally, the information is sent to the in-house milling machine. CEREC milling units are capable of fabricating dental crowns out of blocks of zirconia, composite, and PMMA materials. These materials are highly durable, able to withstand biting and chewing forces, resistant to staining, and are unsusceptible to developing cavities. This entire treatment process can be completed in a single office visit while the patient waits in the dental's chair, providing a significantly higher level of convenience, quality, and comfort.
