CEREC® Dental Crowns

Sometimes referred to as caps, dental crowns are tooth-colored “jackets” that slide comfortably and tightly over injured, damaged, discolored, or cracked teeth. Dental crowns provide added strength and improve the overall health of your teeth while making your smile look more uniform and attractive.

Traditionally dental crowns were made off-site at a lab from a mold taken during the first dental appointment. This required patients to return after a few weeks for a second visit in order to have the newly made crown placed on the tooth. Thanks to Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics ( CEREC®), this is no longer the case. We are proud to offer CEREC® dental crowns at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey. Instead of having to send the impression to a lab, the CEREC® dental crowns are created at our Fairfield, Essex County dental practice.

Creation of CEREC® Dental Crowns

If a patient needs a dental crown, LVI dentist Jerry Strauss will remove part of the tooth’s natural structure and take an impression of the patient’s teeth. Using the CEREC® 3D software, the impression of the tooth is used as a guide by the CEREC® computerized system. The system then mills the customized dental crown from a block of porcelain selected to match the natural shade of the patient’s teeth. The durable, new CEREC® dental crown is then affixed to the tooth, acting as its new outer layer.

Advantages of CEREC® Dental Crowns

There are numerous advantages to the CEREC® dental crowns used at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey. Some of the highlights of CEREC® crowns include:

  • Time Saving: CEREC® dental crowns are made while patients wait in the spa-like atmosphere of our Fairfield location. There is no need for a second trip to our cosmetic dentist office.
  • Comfort: There is no need for an uncomfortable temporary crown when using one-visit CEREC® crowns.
  • Esthetics/Appearance: The CEREC® dental crowns used at our Essex County location are made from strong, natural looking porcelain, with no metal used in their composition.
  • Money Saving: Even though CEREC® dental crowns are a larger initial investment than traditional crowns, overall they can save money, eliminating the costs of a second visit and lab fees.
  • Durability: With proper dental hygiene, CEREC® dental crowns can last up to 40 years.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are an excellent option for people that have lost one or more teeth. They perfect smiles by actually bridging the gaps left behind by missing teeth, filling the spaces with natural-looking, durable, and comfortable artificial teeth. Bridges, which can remain in place indefinitely with proper care, help eliminate strain when biting down, correct speech impaired by missing teeth, and make chewing much easier and more convenient.
