In the past when you needed a crown for a dental restoration, you had to prepare yourself for a time-consuming process. When placing a traditional crown, the dentist would have to remove a portion of the affected tooth in order to fit the crown properly. You would then receive a temporary and wait until the permanent crown was created, requiring another trip to the dentist for placement.
Now you can opt for a complete restoration placed in just one visit using CEREC technology at our Novato dentist office. This is one of the only systems available today for fabricating all-ceramic dental restorations in just one office visit. With CEREC you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic crown!
New Crowns in Just One Office Visit!
Designing and placing dental restorations often requires multiple trips to the dentist. The first would involve an injection of anesthesia, preparation of the tooth, dental impressions, followed by placement of a temporary crown. A few weeks later the temporary crown would be removed and a permanent crown placed.
Today, using state-of-the-art CEREC technology, we can construct your new crown right in our office while you wait. You don’t need to return for a second visit and you don’t have to put up with the inconvenience of a temporary crown. CEREC crowns are completely metal-free, so they look natural and allow us to view the tooth by x-ray when it’s covered by a CEREC crown.
Health Benefits of CEREC Crowns
A CEREC tooth restoration is convenient, but it is also healthy. We used to have few options for restoring decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam or gold. The CEREC dentist in Novato uses strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength and beauty.
With proper at-home oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist, a CEREC restoration can last a lifetime! Please contact our office for more information.
