The Dental Care Center
CEREC technology has been around since the late 1980s, and it has revolutionized restoring decayed or broken teeth with a strong, natural-looking crown in just one appointment. As technology has improved, more and more dentists are using it, and The Dental Care Center in Van Nuys, CA is proud to offer this convenience to patents.
CEREC is an acronym that stands for the following:
Chairside—Because the milling unit for the crowns is located in our office, we can make the dental crown while you wait.
Economical—We can avoid outsourcing the creation of the crown to a laboratory with the associated shipping and handling costs, which means that we can pass along the savings to our patients.
Restoration—Your tooth will be restored and will not only look natural but will also function just like your natural tooth.
Esthetic—No one will know you have a dental crown except you! CEREC same-day crowns contain no metal and look completely natural.
Ceramic—Ceramic is a strong material that mimics the structure and durability of your natural tooth.
The CEREC technology procedure is simple: An optical impression is taken of your tooth using a tasteless powder and digital camera. The three-dimensional software creates a model of the needed restoration. We can adjust and customize the restoration as needed before sending the specifications to the milling unit located in our office. Your perfect-fitting crown is made and ready for bonding in just about 15 minutes! Say goodbye to goopy impressions, ill-fitting temporaries, and repeat visits to our office to get your new tooth.
Please call The Dental Care Center to schedule your appointment for a fast, natural-looking dental crown!
