Written by Dr. McConnell on Mar 12, 2024

When you’re faced with dental damage, and your smile isn’t looking or feeling its best, the last thing that you want to do is to have to wait to get the treatment you need. Our Novato CEREC dentists use state-of-the-art technology to repair dental damage quickly and conveniently. Keep reading to get a better idea of how CEREC restorations compare to conventional crowns.

  • Timeline 

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the CEREC crown is that it is created, refined, and placed in just one day. When you receive a traditional crown, you have to wait for the restoration to be created in an off-site lab; you actually have to make multiple appointments in order to have your crown designed, fitted, and placed. When you choose CEREC, you just need one appointment to achieve full results, and you don’t have to bother with a temporary crown at all.

  • Aesthetics

Every aspect of the CEREC crown—the size, shape, and color—is customizable to suit the patient’s needs. You’re getting the same aesthetic benefits with CEREC as you would with high-end traditional crowns.

  • Durability

Although CEREC crowns are completed in just one day, these are not temporary crowns. CEREC restorations are milled from ceramic, and designed to stand up to the wear and tear of daily life. You’re not sacrificing quality for expediency.

  • Fit

CEREC technology ensures a natural feeling and comfortable fit because our team is able to move directly from the milling machine to your chair, and back again. We’ll make any necessary adjustments to your restoration right here in our office.

Dental damage is never fun, but restoring your smile doesn’t have to be something you equally dread. We hope that you now have a better idea of what’s possible with CEREC crowns—as always, our Novato CEREC dentists are happy to answer any questions that you may have, to provide you with additional information.
