One of the most beneficial parts of a CEREC crown is that it looks and feels like a real tooth. The ceramic material is matched to your tooth's color and the 3D imaging technology precisely fits the crown to your bite and gum line. Traditional crowns are often made from metal and you can occasionally see them poking out of your tooth. The CEREC crown process is typically more comfortable for patients and easier to fit into your schedule with just one appointment. If you practice good oral hygiene, CEREC crowns have been proven to be just as reliable and last between five and 15 years like a traditional crown.
