Novato, CA Dentist Reviews Benefits of Convenient CEREC Crowns

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jul 28, 2014

Advances in dental technology provide dentists with treatments that virtually transform the lives of our patients. Whether these technologies involve correcting a common cosmetic dental problem or preventing serious dental concerns like periodontal disease, our Novato, CA Dentist office addresses patient concerns easily and efficiently. An added benefit to the patient is the convenience these state-of-the-art treatments offer. Many treatments that used to require multiple appointments and lengthy office visits can now be done in only one sitting.

CEREC (Ceramic Reconstruction) dental crowns are a great example of how new technology streamlines important dental treatment. The usual process for placing a traditional dental crown requires two appointments at your dentist’s office. The first appointment involves removal of some of the existing tooth structure so that an impression can be taken. Then the dentist fits you for a temporary crown that you will wear for several weeks while the permanent crown is fabricated at a dental lab. Then you must return to the dentist so the permanent crown can be placed. This process is not only time-consuming, but many people experience problems with their temporary crown.

But CEREC crowns allow you to avoid the lengthy process associated with traditional crowns. CEREC crowns look natural and are just as durable as traditional crowns. The real benefit, though, is that CEREC crowns are placed in one single visit to the Novato, CA Dentist office. We fabricate your new crown right in our office while you wait. You do not need a temporary crown, and you leave our office with a beautiful, natural-looking dental restoration. We mill CEREC crowns out of pure porcelain to create a beautiful restoration that is stain resistant and durable. Another benefit is that, unlike traditional crowns, CEREC crowns contain no metal, so they look naturally white and blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.

If you’re interested in learning more about CEREC dental crowns, we will be happy to arrange a consultation to discuss your options and explain in detail the process of having CEREC crowns placed.
