What to Expect
Because CEREC restorations are all porcelain, they do not work in every situation. Back teeth, for instance, require metal dental materials to endure the intense, crushing pressure from biting and chewing. Martin Dentistry works with reputable dental labs and talented ceramists for quality lab-crafted restorations when patient need metal dental restoration. CEREC creates digital impressions of the tooth or teeth that require restorations. These digital impressions are transmitted to the milling unit, which molds a block of porcelain into the custom crown, inlay, or onlay. The dentist can then bond the dental restoration to the teeth during the same visit.
After the CEREC crown is cemented in place and checked by the dentist for fit and bite, the dentist will give the patient home care recommendations about caring for their new crown, including a good home oral care routine, regular dental exams and cleanings. To protect the new crown, patients should avoid chewing hard foods, like ice and their fingernails. If the patient grinds their teeth or clenches their jaw at night, a night guard may be recommended to protect the crown.
