At the Art of Dentistry, Drs. Addleson, Campbell, and Landau are committed to offering the latest, most advanced dental technology that improves the lives of patients and makes treatment easier. That is evident through CEREC® crowns in San Diego, CA, which limit the time the patient must spend in the office to have missing or cracked teeth fixed.
The way your smile looks can affect your self-esteem and your relationships over time as you become less comfortable with smiling and communicating openly. As proof of our commitment to helping every patient obtain a healthier, happier smile, we want to teach you more about dental crowns.
CEREC® Versus Traditional Dental Crowns
Traditional dental crowns require several visits to the office. At the first appointment, the tooth is prepared for a crown. A mold is taken of the tooth and it is sent off to the lab to be made within approximately two weeks. A temporary crown is placed until the permanent tooth comes in, and then the patient comes back to have the permanent crown fitted.
CEREC® crowns are designed to cut back on the time you must spend at the dentist. With a special machine, all procedures can be finished in one single appointment. Rather than sending the mold out to a lab, we take a digital impression and the crown is created in office. No temporary crown is necessary, and the procedure is non-invasive. These dental crowns look just as natural as traditional crowns, are durable and they are made of high-quality ceramics.
