The correlation between a person’s teeth and their confidence has been proven many times over. This will not come as a surprise since a good set of teeth is usually linked with good hygiene. A question posted in Share Care on how a healthy smile affects self-confidence was answered by the American Dental Association. What they said was that a healthy and dazzling smile aids in projecting confidence as well as reveal how much a person cares about their oral health. Additionally, Dr. Mehmet Oz of the famous Dr. Oz Show answered that a beautiful smile increases the quality of life. However, due to some unfortunate incident, you may find yourself with chipped or broken teeth. Vegas Smiles has the fast solution for that with our 1 Day CEREC Dental Crowns Las Vegas.

There are many factors, aside from poor oral hygiene, that causes chipped, broken, and worn down teeth.
- Bruxism is a term used to describe constant habitual teeth grinding. This may be caused by stress or anxiety, improper teeth alignment, antidepressant medication, or even sleep apnea. This habitual teeth grinding can not only happen during the day time but this also can happen at night while you sleep. People who suffer from this may also look into dental treatments such as getting mouth guards or getting teeth properly aligned.
- Accidents can cause a tooth to chip. It can happen when your tooth is met with great impact while playing sports, or when you accidentally bite down on a hard solid object. It can even happen when you are texting in bed and your phone falls on your face. That is why dentists always recommend taking extra caution when eating hard food or when playing sports. As for phones, it is highly recommended that texting while lying down is to be avoided.
- Acidic food and drinks can cause the enamel of the tooth to erode. In a short experiment posted by Buzzfeed, they revealed the effects of constant exposure soda has on teeth. In the experiment, the white teeth turned brown and decayed in just a matter of 5 days. It is also worth noting that sugar feeds the bacteria on the teeth and will cause unwanted cavities. This is why regular brushing is needed for teeth to maintain their healthy state.
- Stomach acids are tasked to dissolve the food that we eat. Hence, they are very potent. People who suffer from GERD or acid reflux, or those suffering diseases that induce frequent vomiting, like bulimia, alcoholism, or those undergoing chemotherapy, have teeth that are frequently exposed to harsh stomach acids. These potent acids can erode a person’s teeth. Preventive dental treatment is also recommended in these cases.
How Does CEREC Technology Work?
- Initial Examination
As with all dental treatments, an initial examination is required. This allows the dentist to determine the extent of the tooth damage. Sometimes a tooth will only need dental fillings or bonding. However, in the case that a dental crown is needed, the next thing that the dentist will do is remove any decay found on the tooth to prep it for the CEREC procedure. This step helps avoid further decay from spreading within the tooth in the future.
- Digital Imaging
In this stage, the dentist will be taking digital impressions of the tooth that was earlier prepared. Think of this as a sort of photo booth for your tooth. A wand-like camera is used to take a 3-D image of the said tooth. By using computers in this process, the gag reflex induced by wet dental plasters can be a thing of the past.
- CEREC Processing
Afterward, the image is processed by the CEREC system to convert it into a virtual 3-D model. Your dentist will then work on this model to design your restorative dental crown. The software used by the CEREC system also helps the dentist design a more accurate and realistic crown with just a few clicks.
- Milling Process
After the image has been designed and analyzed, this is then sent to the milling machine. This is where the tooth gets sculpted from a high-quality ceramic block that matches the patient’s original tooth color. Your dentist will help you choose among 17 shades of these ceramic blocks to make sure the color blends perfectly with the rest of your teeth. All of this is done in the dental clinic while you are relaxing in the dentist chair. Since the need to process the tooth in a separate dental facility is no longer needed, the waiting time is significantly shortened. In as little as 20 minutes, you will have your dental crown ready to be bonded to your tooth.
After the tooth has been sculpted the dentist fits the CEREC crown on the tooth to ensure a proper fit. In this stage, the final revisions are made before the crown is bonded over the prepped tooth. It is very important to communicate with your dentist during this time. Inform them of your concerns in the unlikely case that the tooth is not a perfect match or fit. They will then make the necessary adjustments to ensure that the crown will look and feel as good as the original tooth. Once the crown is bonded, the dentist will remove any excess ceramic and bonding agent so that the tooth will look and feel as natural as possible.
