Serenity Dental avoids all of the waiting for a crown, and also gives you a healthier crown than the common porcelain-fused-to-metal versions other dentists use. How exactly do they create these crowns? By using an in-office metal-free porcelain crown machine called the CEREC Machine.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration or Esthetic Ceramics, or Ceramic Reconstruction. This machine uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to form a 3D model crown. And, as the name suggests, this process is completed in such little time that you don’t even need to leave the dentist chair. The dentist simply needs to get a digital impression of your tooth, far more comfortable than the alternative, and then the computer does much of the rest. CEREC is a relatively new invention (from the 1980s), but it is growing in use as it reduces the chance of human error that can occur during the long process of producing crowns without the use of crown machines. The crowns made using CEREC have also been found to last longer than other crowns, another clear benefit for any consumer.
By utilizing the CEREC Machine, Serenity Dental allows you to only need one appointment to get a crown. There is no need to wait for the dentist to send off your impressions, and you won’t need to use a temporary cap or deal with a shaved down tooth. Not only is the use of metal-free porcelain crown machine convenient, but it will also give you a healthier mouth than the alternative, and in turn a healthier life.
