Dental technology is always evolving, and our Glendale dentist office stays on top of the latest treatments in order to bring our patients the best that dentistry has to offer. One recent innovation in dentistry is the CEREC restoration system. CEREC crowns are crafted and placed quickly, making it easier than ever before for patients to get the dental care they need. Today we’re answering common patient questions about CEREC, so read on!
Q: What does CEREC stand for?
A: CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” The CEREC acronym encompasses the technology’s ability to produce attractive dental restorations quickly and affordably.
Q: So how long does it take to have a CEREC crown placed?
A: That’s the amazing thing! With CEREC technology you can have your crown created and placed in just one dental appointment! So if you have a tooth that is damaged or infected, you can walk out of our office with a healthy smile after only one appointment.
Q: Do I have to wear a temporary crown if I get a CEREC restoration?
A: No, in fact this is one of the major advantages of choosing CEREC crowns. Because we can place your crown in just one visit, you don’t have to spend days or weeks wearing a temporary crown.
Q: Does my insurance cover CEREC treatment?
A: If your insurance covers traditional dental crowns, it likely covers CEREC crowns. The best way to find out for sure is to simply call your insurance provider and ask!
CEREC crowns make it fast and easy for patients to restore their teeth. Forget the hassle of the traditional crown placement process and discover what CEREC can do for you. Give our Glendale CEREC dentist office a call to learn more about this technology and to schedule your dental consultation.
