In our Toluca Lake dentist office, we use the latest technologies in order to make dental care fast and comfortable for our patients. One example of state-of-the-art dental technology is the CEREC crown machine. Our dental team is able to use this machine to craft and place a patient’s restorative crown in just one day. Let’s learn more about this treatment.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is actually a technology—Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This machine crafts dental crowns from blocks of porcelain. But here’s what makes CEREC amazing—this machine is designed to be housed and used in a dental office. This means that our Toluca Lake dentists are able to create your dental crown in-office, during your appointment. No longer do we have to send your specs off to a lab and wait for the final crown to be shipped back to us.
Why do patients choose CEREC crowns?
First of all, patients love CEREC crowns for the convenience. Thanks to CEREC technology you can come into our office with a broken tooth, and leave with a permanent crown in place. We are able to restore many patients’ teeth in just one appointment.
Additionally, CEREC crowns are milled from porcelain. This means that they are sturdy, and they hold up well through years of use. Porcelain crowns are also known for their luminosity—porcelain, in many ways, mimics the appearance of natural dental enamel.
Finally, because our team is able to design, create, and place your crown in-office, we can quickly customize your restoration to fit you. We’ll ensure that your crown fits perfectly.
