Here at our office in San Ramon, CA, Pro Smile Dental Care are one of the few dentists to offer CEREC. This new technology created the same day crown replacement option.
Same Day Dental Restoration
CEREC, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction) is a dental restoration device that allows us to produce great results the same day for ceramic dental restorations by using a variety of computer assisted technologies.
These include 3D photography and CAD/CAM. With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single sitting, rather than the multiple sittings. Our CEREC crowns are designed to look as natural as possible.
How Is Ceramic Different?
In the past it could take 3 or more visits and a waiting time of a couple of days up to a couple of weeks to obtain a ceramic crown or dental implant crown. The previous lab costs added onto the total cost of the crown replacement.
The reason for this is that in most cases, the ceramic crown or dental implant crown needs to be requested, created by, and returned from an offsite lab. Now, crowns are available in just one visit.
The CEREC system uses 3D technology to create a far more precise digital impression of the patient’s teeth, and does so in a fast, easy, and far more comfortable manner than the traditional methods in the past. What does this mean for you? Is it affordable? Yes!
We reduce the number of visits for a crown visit so you can save on time and transportation costs.
