CEREC Crowns: A Single Boise Dental Treatment

CEREC Crowns: A Single Boise Dental Treatment

If you have a deteriorating tooth or a cavity that’s just too big to fill, you may be a good candidate for a Boise dental crown. Traditional crowns vs. today’s modern crowns are very different. With advanced dental technology, it’s easier than ever to get the treatment you need when you need it. While traditional crowns had their value, same day crowns with CEREC Digital Impressions are focused on saving you both time and money.

Traditional Crowns

In the past, if you needed a crown, your Boise dentist would take an impression mold of your tooth before sending it off to a lab to have a crown created. To protect your tooth during this process, a temporary crown would be placed while you waited for your permanent one to be made. Often, two or more weeks would go by where you would have to wear the temporary crown before returning to your dentist to have the permanent crown fitted.

CEREC – Same Day Crowns

Same day crowns, on the other hand,  are exactly what their name implies. Utilizing CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology, a digital impression of your tooth will be taken. Instead of using an uncomfortable impression mold, your Boise dentist will then use the image and the CEREC machine to create a custom crown that fits your tooth.

A CEREC crown will then be placed the same day it was created, eliminating the need for multiple office visits. Not only will a CEREC crown provide you with a more natural look, the dentists at Summit Dental Group can guarantee that the color of your crown will match the color of your natural teeth as much as possible.
