Glendale CEREC Dentist Explains Some Benefits of CEREC Crowns Over Conventional Restorations

Written by Dr. McKay on Sep 24, 2013

Many adult patients need to have a crown placed at some point in their lives. This common dental procedure helps patients regain healthy smiles after dental decay or injury. Technological innovations in restorative dentistry have transformed the way that our dental team fabricates and places crowns—read on to learn more!

Our Glendale dentist office now offers CEREC restorative dentistry, which is more convenient than the traditional crown placement process. CEREC allows our dentist to fabricate your crown in-office, during your appointment, rather than having your crown manufactured off-site. How does this benefit you?

Faster treatment times

It used to be that a patient needed to schedule several dental appointments in order to get the crown that he or she needed. Now, however, our dentist can create and place your crown in just one appointment. This saves you time and the hassle of making multiple trips to the dentist’s office!

No temporary crown necessary

When you have a conventional crown placed, you have to wear a temporary crown in between your two dental appointments, while you wait for your final crown to be ready. Temporary crowns are often ill fitting and awkward, so it is ideal that you can now avoid temporary crowns altogether with CEREC crowns.

Preserve healthy tooth structure

CEREC technology allows us to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible, while still repairing dental decay and damage in the affected tooth. The more natural dental structure we can keep intact, the stronger your tooth will be over the long term.

If you need a dental crown, CEREC technology will allow you to get the treatment you need quickly and easily. Please call our Glendale CEREC dentist office to get more information about restorative dentistry options. We will help you reclaim your healthy smile using the latest dental technology available!
