CEREC Dentist Novato Explains Benefits of Single Visit Crowns

Written by Dr. McConnell on May 14, 2019

One-day CEREC crowns are a remarkable innovation that will have you leaving our office with a permanent crown in just one visit.

CEREC technology allows us to create strong, customized, tooth-colored ceramic restorations right here at the office of the CEREC Dentist Novato. There’s no need for a temporary, no second appointment, and best of all, you’ll leave our office with a beautiful, all-porcelain restoration with no black margin at the gum line. A single visit is usually all that’s required, and the aesthetics are beautiful.

Eliminates the Need for Multiple Visits

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary removed, and have a permanent crown placed.

Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.

Beautiful, Durable Results

In just one visit, the CEREC Dentist Novato will prepare your damaged tooth, create an optical impression of the tooth, and use CEREC technology to design and mill a precision restoration. Once the restoration is adjusted for a perfect fit, we will bond it permanently to your tooth. No mess, no discomfort, no wait. Get the smile you want and get back to your life.

CEREC – A Healthy Solution

A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, our dentist uses strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function.

These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so our dentist can conserve as much healthy tooth structure and tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
