Rochester Dentists Addresses Frequently Asked Questions About CEREC Crowns


According to a recent Kelton Research study, those with beautiful smiles are considered more successful and attractive. In fact, a sizeable portion of the people polled for the study said a smile was one of the first things they noticed when meeting someone for the first time. Great smiles often make great first impressions and can even boost our self-confidence. But too many people don’t seek the necessary dental care to improve their smile due to time constraints. Thankfully, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, provides a method of smile restoration that can be completed in just one visit. In today’s blog, Dr. Calcagno answers a few common questions about our one-stop CEREC crowns.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Single-Visit Crowns

Question: How do I know if I need a crown?

Answer: Are you experiencing tooth sensitivity to hot or cold? Are you suffering from a constant toothache? Dental crowns are often prescribed to repair damage from tooth decay. Toothaches and sensitivity are usually the first signs of a cavity. A crown will act as a cap that fits over your tooth, protecting it from further decay and preserving the remaining tooth structure.

Question: Are CEREC crowns as strong as traditional crowns?

Answer: Yes! CEREC crowns are made from blocks of special durable dental ceramic. They provide years of quality restoration, and return your mouth to full function and appearance.

Question: Do CEREC crowns look natural?

Answer: They do! Dr. Calcagno uses 3D imaging and a high-tech CEREC machine to custom-make your crown based on her exact specifications. In addition, the crown can be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile. CEREC crowns provide long lasting and esthetically pleasing smile repair.

Question: What’s the first step in receiving a CEREC crown?

Answer: Come see Dr. Calcagno! She will perform a thorough oral examination to ensure CEREC crowns provide the best means of addressing your smile needs.
