Can I have an amalgam or a gold crown milled with CEREC?No, this system is specifically for Ceramic restorations. Traditionally, dentists have recommended metals for crowns due to their ability to take chewing pressure, ceramic was thought to be more susceptible to breakage. This is no longer true. Ceramic restorations today have come a long way. The material used today offers a high level of durability. Ceramic is now known for its strength, its biocompatible properties, and its look and feel most resembling your natural teeth. Ceramic is now the preferred option for dental restorations.
