Why Does Our Glendale Dentist Recommend CEREC Crowns?

Written by Dr. McKay on Sep 28, 2015

When a patient comes into our office with damaged teeth, we help the patient find the perfect restorative option for him or her. One treatment that is truly transformative for many patients is the application of a CEREC crown. In this short article we are going to learn more about why our Glendale dentists offer this amazing dental treatment.

CEREC technology allows our dental team to craft customized restorations right here in our office. The CEREC machine mills dental crowns out of durable and attractive porcelain. Once the crown is complete, our dental team will place it on the treated tooth; the result is a permanent, personalized restoration.

So why do so many dental patients choose CEREC crowns to restore their smiles?

1. A completely restored tooth in just one appointment

One of the marvels of CEREC technology is that you can come into our office with a damaged tooth, and leave with a totally restored smile. Our dental team is able to mill your customized restoration while you are in the dentist’s chair.

2. Customized crowns

During your appointment our dental team will take the specifications for your crown. Then, our dentist takes these measurements directly to the CEREC machine to mill your crown. When the crown is complete, our team will tweak it to ensure a perfect fit.

3. Durability

Although the CEREC crown takes only one appointment to place, these are permanent and durable restorations. Once your crown is in place, it will stand up to the wear and tear of your daily routine—and it will look great!
