Or perhaps you have a tooth that requires a dental crown, and you just want to make sure that you are choosing the perfect treatment option for you. No matter what the situation, this short article on CEREC crowns will help you understand how CEREC treatment works, and why it is so popular in our Toluca Lake dentist office.

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics; CEREC crowns are produced by a machine in your dentist’s office. These crowns are used to restore teeth after injury or infection.

Here are just a few of the reasons that so many people choose CEREC crowns to meet their restorative dentistry needs.

1. Speedy treatment

CEREC technology allows our dentist to craft your dental crown right in our office during your appointment. This means that you will not have to wait for your dental restoration to be crafted in an off-site location before you can receive treatment. With CEREC treatment our dental team can get it all done in one appointment.

2. Natural results

CEREC crowns are milled out of porcelain, so they look great and hold up well over time. Additionally, these crowns are shaped and shaded to match your real teeth—they will look seamless in your smile.

3. No need for temporary crowns

Because the entirety of the CEREC dental crown placement process is completed in just one appointment, you will not have to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your restoration to be completed.

Our Toluca Lake CEREC dentist office is here to give you all of the information that you need about this innovative treatment option. We look forward to meeting with you!
