What is 3D dental crowns

If one of your teeth is damaged, your dentist may advise you Dental crown (veneer) to remedy the situation.

A crown is a small tooth-shaped covering that fits your teeth.
It can hide distorted or discolored teeth and can also be used in dental implantn.

A crown can also protect or restore a broken or damaged tooth.
The dentist can also carry a bridge to fill the void resulting from missing teeth.

Crowns are made of different materials and there are several types to choose from.

The main types are:

  • Metal coatings.
  • Gum or resin (croissant).
  • ceramics.
  • Porcelain dental coating.
  • A mixture of metal and porcelain.
  • Zircon crown.
  • Porcelain.

There is a common type that has undergone great development in recent years called crown of the cirque CEREC It is often made of very strong ceramics and is designed, manufactured and installed with the help of a computer, which is called a three-dimensional dental crown.

This word is made up of the letters that begin with the phrase Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. You can usually get one of these crowns in one session at the dentist.

3D Teeth Veneers (Ceric Crowns - Extreme Precision in Every Step)

The difference between the modern and traditional method is accuracy

Precision is what distinguishes Ceric crowns from traditional crowns.
There are many reasons that can lead to error or inaccuracy in lab-made crowns.

First There is an error caused by taking the tooth edition.
The quality of the crown depends on the accuracy in taking the impression for the tooth to be covered, and this in turn depends on several factors,


  • The quality of the material used for taking the print.
  • The extent of the patient's desire to cooperate and coordinate with the doctor.
  • In the event that we are using a one-size-fits-all mold designed to fit all dental impressions, this may not give the exact measurement required.
  • The amount of saliva in the mouth that can distort the impression.
  • The skill of the dentist who takes the edition.

Even if everything is arranged well (which is often questionable) the end result will not be as accurate and detailed as the 3D scanner that takes the images needed to make cerique crowns.

Taking the edition is only the first step, as there is the next process, which is the making of the model.

Unlike Ceric crowns, traditional laboratory-made crowns are first made by mixing powder with water and then poured into the mold of the impression previously taken so that it is formed into a stone model.
In most cases there will be a discrepancy in the mixture that can lead to problems in reproducing the accuracy of the bite in the patient's jaw and teeth. Furthermore, the lab technician has to pour the melted wax over the stone model to form the new crown. Again, the results may vary depending on the skill of the technician in pouring the wax and making the crown.

As we can see, there are many processes that may not go well.

On the other hand, what about ceric crowns and 3D dental crowns?

Ceric crowns are made in such a way as to eliminate any potential defects. Scanning is done with an accuracy of 1/10 of a millimeter and the images are fed to a computer that reproduces the crown in less than 5 minutes.
The human factor has been completely excluded from the manufacturing process.

Because Ceric crowns and the technology behind them are incredibly precise, crowns made usually require no adjustments.
This is great for those patients who need multiple crowns where no mistakes can be made.

Pros and cons of 3D dental crowns

Advantages and benefits of 3D dental crowns:

Direct restoration of dental function:

Your teeth affect your smile, how you talk and how you eat. If you have to wear a temporary crown while the lab designs the permanent crown, you need to be very careful when you eat or talk.
You even have to follow a special diet so that the temporary crown does not fall off.
And all this is not found in the case of the crown of the circus, which is accomplished in one day.

Prevent damage:

In the case of traditional crowns, you have to wear a temporary crown for several days. Unfortunately, these crowns do not always fit in your mouth and can loosen and this can often lead to injury or other damage.
As for today's circadian crown, it reduces the risk of damage by giving you the appropriate crown after one visit to the doctor.
In addition, the cervical crown requires less drilling in your teeth, which means that most of the tooth is preserved.

Save money:

Frequent appointments and temporary crowns cost a lot of money by halving your visits to the dentist and eliminating the need for temporary crowns.

Plus, fewer visits to the dentist's office and fewer vacations from work means for some people more opportunities to earn money.


The temporary crowns you get with traditional procedures are made of resin or resin and are rarely suitable, which makes them uncomfortable.
While the ceramic crown is completely suitable for the tooth, which makes it very comfortable.

Prevent cavities:

As the temporary crown sometimes falls out, it creates a cavity that leads to more decay in the tooth, and this problem does not exist at all in the cerebellar crown.

More aesthetic:

As the teeth that are made in this way are completely similar to real teeth.

 You can also learn about Dental implants using a 3D printer or transparent 3d calendar.


riskFor crowns made of porcelain fused to metal stronger:

Ceric technology uses a ceramic block to design the new crown.

Traditional crowns can consist of porcelain, ceramic, metal, or porcelain fused to metal. The metal crown is strong, as is the mixture of metal and porcelain.

Metal bonds better to teeth, so traditional crowns are more resistant to breakage and damage, making them more durable than ceramic crowns.

aThe reward for a broken tooth implanted in the gums:

When there is a part of the tooth that is broken and remains in the gum, the camera does not scan well these broken parts.
In addition, a traditional crown would be more appropriate in this case.

What is the crust veneer the circus?

In some cases, ceric veneers are a suitable alternative to the crown, and unlike the crown, the veneer covers only the front part of the teeth, so it may not be suitable for broken or damaged teeth. The veneer is usually made of porcelain or a resinous compound.

The dentist can also use the computer-aided design tools that are part of the Ceric process to create a porcelain veneers for your teeth with a 3D printer to get a Hollywood Smile smile.

You can expect long-term results from the ceric veneer treatment. One reliable study found that the ceric veneer method had a high rate of stability in people who had been treated with it, and it still worked well after 9 years of treatment.

How much does a 3D ceric crown cost?

The cost of a cirque crown depends on several factors:

Person, amount of work, preparatory work required and existing insurance coverage.
Instead of focusing on price alone, it is necessary to compare the cost of a Ceric crown with a traditional crown.

There are other types of dental crowns

Ceric crowns are not your only option, of course. You can get a crown made from a variety of other materials including zircon, porcelain, ceramic, metals such as gold and resin compounds, as well as combinations of different materials.

If you do not opt for a surgical procedure, you will not be able to get your dental crown with just one visit to the dentist. Because crowns require at least two visits to the dentist.

During the first visit, the doctor will prepare the tooth that needs a crown and take an impression of it to send to the dental laboratory.
As for you, you receive a temporary crown, and then you have to return for a second visit to get your permanent dental crown. As for the serrated crown, the patient does not need a temporary crown, as the entire process is completed during one visit.

3D crown dressing procedures and method

Preparing the tooth for the operation (file the tooth before dressing):

The first step is for the dentist to prepare the tooth. The dentist removes the decayed or damaged parts of the tooth and redesigns it to hold the crown.

In the case of traditional crowns, the doctor usually peels and removes more than 70% from the healthy tooth structure.
As for the ceric crowns, they do not remove much of the healthy tooth structure (ie, the tooth is not cooled before veneers to a very small extent).

Taking the Edition (Photography Phase):

The patient is often worried about the process of taking the impression in the doctor's office, as the paste-like substance placed in the printing molds can cause the patient to muzzle from speech.

. Fortunately the Doctor in our centers Uses digital prints or images in the case of circus crowns.
The doctor uses a small camera (called scanners). Cad CamIt scans and scans the patient's teeth in 3D, and this is more comfortable than the traditional method.

crown manufacture:

The doctor quickly makes the crown by means of a computer, where the digital print is passed to a computer, so the doctor reviews the impressions and designs a model that looks like a natural tooth and chooses the appropriate color for the crown so that it matches the color of the rest of the teeth.

crown making:

Physicians who install ceric crowns have machines (printing machines) in their clinics that grind ceramic blocks, and this process usually takes about 15 minutes.
Although this process is fast, it is accurate.

Crown installation:

The doctor takes the crown from the grinding machine, polishes it, and compares it with the patient's teeth to make sure it matches them.

Then he checks that the crown fits the tooth and secures it in place.
Then the doctor will give the patient post-operative care instructions.

Studies on the 3D dental crown process

There are many studies Which talks about more beautiful and close results to realistic teeth and within a shorter period of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Three-dimensional computer-assisted dental crowns (Ceric) are the latest methods used in the manufacture of crowns and veneers, as it is considered the best in some cases (i.e., in teeth that do not need extreme durability such as molars and posterior molars), as it is very suitable in crowning the front teeth. .

First the setup, then taking the print digitally using the cad cam, then printing the tooth, then the installation.

The prices of dental crowns vary according to the type of crown and the method used in the crown, as the price of one crown ranges between 50 and 300 US dollars.
