If you’ve waited until the last minute to buy a gift for that special someone, consider giving them the gift of a new smile this holiday season!

CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a method of creating tooth-colored dental crowns and fillings at the dentist’s office in only one visit. In a traditional crown procedure, the patient must wear a temporary restoration for a couple of weeks until the permanent crown is completed. With CEREC technology, however, patients can have their crowns completed in a single appointment! A skilled cosmetic dentist will scan the damaged tooth and surrounding tissues using a computer and milling machine to design and fabricate a crown that fits perfectly to the patient’s smile. Our dentist in Murrieta can complete your CEREC dental crown in just one visit to our dental office. CEREC crowns provide several advantages over traditional lab-created crowns.

  • First, you avoid the hassle of scheduling multiple appointments for the fabrication and placement of a crown. Instead, the entire procedure can be completed in a single visit. The patient comes in to have a damaged tooth repaired or restored, then leaves with a beautiful new crown! This is especially beneficial if the patient is receiving the crown after a root canal treatment, as they’re already coming in for a restorative appointment. With CEREC, there’s no need to come back for a second appointment.
  • Second, CEREC delivers high-quality results. Because CEREC uses 3D imaging technology to create restorations completely in-house, it can create highly precise dental crowns. When these restorations are being created in the dental office where the patient receives them, there’s no need to worry about the quality of the materials or the skill level of the technician. Your loved one will receive natural-looking, beautiful results that can last for a long time with proper oral care and routine visits to the dentist.
  • Third, CEREC provides faster results than a traditional crown procedure. While normal lab-made porcelain crowns can take up to two weeks to be created and shipped to the dental office where they will be fitted, same-day CEREC crowns can be created in about an hour! This means your loved one can have their new crown as soon as possible, making it easier than ever to restore their beautiful smile just in time for the holidays.
  • Finally, because CEREC is able to provide quicker results, it’s also typically less expensive than a traditional crown procedure. Because patients don’t need to take multiple trips to receive and fit their crowns, the procedure is often more cost-effective.

If you’re thinking about getting your loved one a CEREC crown, call our dental office and schedule an appointment with us.
