Can CEREC Crowns Help You? Get A Better Idea From Our Toluca Lake Dentists

Written by Dr. McKay on Mar 10, 2015

Restoring your smile after damage or disease is no easier than ever before. Our Toluca Lake dentists utilize CEREC crown technology to help our patients repair their smiles in just one appointment.

Could CEREC technology help you? Here is some more pertinent information about this exciting treatment option.

1. CEREC crowns are used to restore teeth. Your tooth may already be damaged, or our dentist may need to restore your tooth after we eliminate a dental cavity. A crown is permanently attached to remaining healthy tooth structure, so that your tooth looks natural and functions optimally.

2. CEREC crowns are permanent restorations—these are not temporary crowns. They are milled from porcelain; they not only look great, they also stand up to the wear and tear of normal, everyday life.

3. You can get your CEREC crown in just one appointment. It used to be that a patient had to be fitted for a crown, and then our dentist would send the specifications to a lab for the crown to be created. Once the crown was shipped back to our office, we could perfect the fit of the restoration and permanently attach the crown. As you’d imagine this entire process took time, and many patients found it tedious. Our CEREC machine allows us to mill your restoration while you’re in the dentist’s chair. We can attach it the same day!

4. CEREC crowns, because they are made of porcelain, are totally customizable. The size, color, and shape of your crown will suit your smile.

In general, patients who are good candidates for conventional crowns can also benefit from CEREC crowns. If you want more information, you can always call our Toluca Lake CEREC dentists. And, when you come in for a personal consultation, we can give you even more personalized treatment options and tips. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
