I went to this new mobile dental clinic to get a crown. I needed it fast because my schedule is crazy. I knew that I was taking a chance but I didn’t think it would be that bad. It’s horrible and you can see it when I smile because it’s a front side tooth. They told me that it’s not CEREC but it’s the next best thing. Wow. When I looked in the mirror the assistant said something like, “See how beautiful your tooth is?” I was so furious that I just told her how absolutely horrible it looked. They tried to remain pleasant but I really let them know that I was not happy. Now what do I do? RJ
RJ – Although many patients choose knock-off CEREC crowns to save money, they can produce unpredictable results. Your next step depends on whether or not you want to replace the crown. If you want a natural-looking crown, you can visit an experienced cosmetic dentist who will take the necessary images of your teeth to provide you with a replica of your natural tooth.
The skill of a cosmetic dentist, along with quality porcelain is what can provide you with a natural-looking CEREC crown. CAD/CAM technology is used with CEREC to provide a precisely fitting crown that looks like your natural teeth.
CEREC® crowns are made in a single visit, so you won’t have any further embarrassment about your tooth. We suggest that you have two or three consultations with cosmetic dentists, ask questions about their training, how long they have been placing same-day crowns, and what will be done to ensure that your crown matches your natural teeth. You can also ask to see before-and-after pictures of CEREC cases each dentist has completed from start to finish.You will receive much better results, and your crown can last up to fifteen years if you take good care of it.
