CEREC One Day Crowns
CEREC Same-Day Crowns Are Available in Foothill Ranch
In the past, patients in need of restorative dental work would have to rely on traditional crowns, inlays, onlays, or dental veneers, which sometimes take a number of weeks to complete. Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC) drastically reduce the time it takes to complete restorative procedures by creating in-office ceramic crowns within minutes, allowing your treatment to take place in a single appointment.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
Using computer-assisted design (CAD) technology, and a milling machine, CEREC is able to create custom restorative devices. CEREC is:
- More affordable
- Minimally invasive
- High quality
- Completed in one dental visit
CAD technology and milling allows three-dimensional images to be taken of the prepared tooth. These images are used to create a customized crown and to prepare its installation.
Once Drs.Lombardi have created your custom crowns, a milling device uses the details from the CAD scanner to craft the crown from a block of ceramic material.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns in Foothill Ranch
To begin, Drs.Lombardi will prepare the existing tooth by removing any decay. Next, impressions of the tooth will be made and transferred as an image onto a computer screen. The computer then transfers the image to the milling machine where the crown is produced.
The CEREC crown is initially placed dry in order to ensure its fit. Afterwards, the crown is polished and cemented into place. The entire procedure takes place in one visit, with the same laboratory-generated results as traditional restorations. CEREC same-day crowns can save you time and money.
