CERECS Dentist Novato Describes the One-Day Crowns Process

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jul 19, 2016

Dental crowns help patients with tooth decay and cosmetic issues (like chipped and cracked teeth) get new, confident smiles. Even better, all-porcelain or all-ceramic crowns look beautiful and are a close match to natural dental enamel.

Unfortunately, most dental crowns take weeks to be made and added to your smile. However, with CEREC same-day crowns offered at CERECS dentist Novato, you can get a restored smile in a single dental appointment. We are committed to high-tech, high quality dentistry and are excited to provide patients with the best in dental restorations and custom cosmetic dental treatment with CEREC.

How Does CEREC Work?

CEREC is an in-office digital imaging and milling system that produces ceramic crowns and other dental prosthetics in under an hour.

Using CEREC’s specialized computer program, we can produce precise digital model of your smile, including your teeth and important oral structures. Next we use a solid block of ceramic to fabricate a crown that fits perfectly. Our dental patients love seeing their crowns made right in front of their eyes. They particularly love our one-day cosmetic and restorative dental treatment!

The Benefits of Same-Day Dentistry

By making your crowns here in our office, we prevent you from having to deal with temporary restorations or multiple office visits. If you come into our office with dental problems that require the placement of a crown, you can leave our office with a permanent restoration the same day.

Our CEREC crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth in shape and color. After your new crown has been milled, the CERECS dentist Novato works with you to select the right shade for your new restoration. He then expertly puts the final touches on your crown, ensuring that the result is natural looking and the perfect complement to your existing teeth.

Our one-day dental crowns are ideal for dental emergencies.  When you experience an accident that results in chipped or damaged teeth, we place a permanent dental crown during your emergency appointment – there’s no waiting to get your urgent oral health problems effectively addressed.
