Are CEREC restorations long lasting?

Gold has often been considered the most reliable and long lasting restoration material, especially for molars that absorb a lot of chewing pressure. Gold has its disadvantages, however. Gold crowns can vary greatly in cost because of the volatile gold market.

Additionally, gold crowns can be unattractive because of their color. Often, patients prefer tooth colored crowns so that people do not notice that they have had dentistry and find white crowns and fillings preferable.

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) provides strength, beauty, and longevity for our patients. Studies have shown that crowns created for back molars using CEREC a similar longevity and quality as gold crowns. Because they wear like natural teeth, they can last well beyond that of traditional composite (plastic) fillings.

Because crowns and fillings are necessary to protect your teeth, using quality materials and the latest in technology appeals to many of our patients. We know you want to have your dentistry done only once and to have it done right.
