If your dentist has told you that you need a crown, you may not be looking forward to the long process of sizing, fitting and waiting for your crown to be fabricated. However, with CEREC technology, offered by Dr. Tom Morgan and Dr. Michael Babcock of Babcock & Morgan Family Dental in Prior Lake, Minnesota, that entire process is condensed to one appointment. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, which means that your crown is actually designed and created using 3D digital technology. What are the benefits of this innovative process? We outline them here.
CEREC crowns protect your overall dental health.
Tooth extractions are no longer the go-to treatment for dental problems. By having a CEREC crown made by your Prior Lake dentist, you are saving the roots of the natural tooth that needs the restoration; the roots are the structural backbone of the teeth and their presence keep the rest of your teeth aligned and healthy.
CEREC crowns are natural-looking and durable.
CEREC crowns are made from ceramic, a high-quality material that will last many years with proper care. The ceramic blocks that are used to mill out CEREC crowns come in a variety of shades, and your Prior Lake dentist will make sure to match your crown with the shade of your natural teeth for a completely realistic look and feel.

You're also not paying for laboratory fees, shipping or temporary restorations. With CEREC, your visit to the dentist is "one and done!"
