When it comes to dental restorations, CEREC dental crown technology has revolutionized the patient experience, offering a quicker, more comfortable, and effective solution for dental crowns. At the dental practice of Eric Spellman, DMD, in Larchmont, we are committed to providing advanced dental care to ensure each patient receives the best possible treatment tailored to their needs. Below, we have compiled some common CEREC dental crown FAQs that we have received over the years from patients around Westchester County.

How long does the CEREC crown placement process take?

The beauty of CEREC crowns lies in their efficiency. The entire dental crown process, from digital impressions to crown fabrication and placement, is typically complete in one office visit. Most patients walk out with a fully restored smile in just about 2 hours.

Are CEREC crowns as durable as traditional crowns?

Yes, CEREC dental crowns are made of high-quality ceramic and designed to be as durable and long-lasting as traditional crowns. With proper care and maintenance, CEREC same-day dental crowns can last more than ten years, similar to conventional crowns.

Does insurance cover the cost of CEREC crowns?

Much like traditional crowns, many dental insurance coverage will cover a portion of the cost of CEREC crowns. The amount of coverage varies depending on your specific insurance policy, so we recommend consulting your provider for detailed information about your coverage.

What is the difference between CEREC crowns and conventional dental crowns?

The primary difference between CEREC and traditional crowns is the fabrication and placement process. Traditional crowns require at least two visits – one to prepare the tooth and take impressions and another to place the crown once the dental lab creates the crown. On the other hand, CEREC technology allows Dr. Eric Spellman to digitally design, craft, and place the dental crown, all in one visit.

Are CEREC crowns suitable for everyone?

While CEREC crowns offer a convenient and efficient solution for many patients, they may not be the best option for everyone. The suitability of CEREC crowns depends on various factors, including the tooth’s location and extent of tooth damage, as well as personal dental needs. Consulting with an experienced dentist like Eric Spellman DMD will help determine if CEREC crowns are suitable for you.

How do I care for and maintain my CEREC crown?

Caring for a CEREC crown is similar to caring for your natural teeth. We recommend regular brushing your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and scheduling regular dental check-ups and cleanings at Eric Spellman, DMD. Avoiding hard and sticky foods to help prolong the life of your crown.

Is the CEREC technology safe and reliable?

Absolutely. CEREC technology has been used in dentistry for over 30 years and has continuously evolved to ensure both safety and reliability. It uses advanced digital imaging and ceramic materials to create crowns that are both aesthetically pleasing and durable.
