Cerec Crowns vs Lab Crowns

CEREC crowns are a wonder of modern dentistry. These crowns can be crafted in our office the same day you come in so you leave with a permanent crown, not a temporary.

Convenience Benefits of CEREC Crowns

CEREC crowns offer many benefits for our patients. With crowns in the same day, you:

  • Only need to make one visit

  • Do not have to risk failure of a temporary crown

  • Do not have to risk discovery of a less attractive temporary crown

  • Do not need to endure removal of temporary crown

Overall, these benefits make CEREC crowns a marvelous addition to our dental arsenal, so we’re happy to offer them.

CEREC Crowns Are As Good As Lab-Made Crowns

Some people express concerns about CEREC crowns. First, do they look as good as lab-made crowns? Second, do they last as well as lab-made crowns? The answer to both is yes!

Some people worry CEREC crowns might not look as good as lab-made crowns. However, our in-office color matching can help us give you a color match as good as the lab. And they are just as polished and made of ceramic with the same luster as your natural tooth enamel.

Some people have expressed concerns about the durability of CEREC crowns, but there’s no need to worry about that. This may be the first time you’ve heard of these crowns, but they’ve been in use for over 20 years, so we have a good idea about their durability. Research suggests that they are as durable as lab made crowns, with about 97% intact at five years, and 90% intact at ten years.
