Our Glendale dentists are committed to helping patients get the dental care they need in the most convenient and stress-way possible. One technology that has vastly improved the dental treatment process for many people is CEREC crown technology. Keep reading to learn more about why CEREC is so popular.

CEREC technology enables our dental team to design and mill your restoration right here in our office, rather than relying on an off-site lab for fabrication.

Traditionally, patients receiving dental crowns would need to schedule multiple appointments in order to complete treatment. In the first appointment, your dentist would prep the relevant tooth, and then take a mold of it from which the restoration can be crafted. You would then come back into the office a week or so later to have the finished crown placed.

CEREC technology transforms the crown treatment process; you can come into our office with dental damage, and leave with a restored tooth the same day. In just one appointment, our dental team will prep your tooth, take a mold, and mill your porcelain restoration using the CEREC machine in our office.

What does this mean for you?

  • You’ll get the restorative treatment you need quickly and conveniently
  • You won’t have to bother with wearing an ill-fitting temporary crown in between dental appointments
  • Every aspect of the treatment process is handled by our dental team, so you benefit from continuity of care
  • Our team is able to refine your crown down to the smallest details to ensure a good fit and an attractive appearance

Our Glendale dentists have found that in general, patients vastly prefer CEREC treatment to receiving a traditional crown. The final CEREC crown is a high-quality, permanent restoration that is completely personalized to suit the patient.

Don’t let dental damage persist and fester. Our team is here to help—give us a call!

Improving the appearance of your smile doesn’t have to be a difficult or time-consuming proposition. Our Glendale cosmetic dentists are here to help you realize your dream smile without suffering through months or years of inconvenient treatments.

The key to successful aesthetic treatment is to match the individual patient with treatments that fit her or his specific needs. When you meet with our team we’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and your treatment priorities, including:

  • Timeline
  • Budget
  • Type and level of post-treatment maintenance required
  • What kind of permanent dental changes with which you’re comfortable

Sometimes people are able to achieve all of their dental goals using just one type of treatment, while other combine aesthetic solutions in order to get full results.

Let’s say, for example, that you simply want to whiten and brighten your natural teeth. In this case, professional dental whitening may be the perfect treatment for you. With professional whitening our team is able to lift existing stains and discoloration, in order to return your smile to its previous, natural level of whiteness. Because professional whitening deliver results after just one appointment, many people choose this option for a quick smile refresh.

People looking to complete more drastic smile transformations may be more interested in porcelain veneers. These thin porcelain restorations are attached to a patient’s natural teeth in order to completely the patient’s smile. With veneers you can close gaps between teeth, cover dental damage and discoloration, and even make poorly aligned smiles look straighter.

Because there are so many cosmetic treatments available in modern dentistry, patients have an unparalleled ability to tailor dental care to fit their needs. Our Glendale cosmetic dentists are here to give you any additional information that you may need about specific treatments, as well as preventive and restorative dentistry in general. Please give us a call to get started—we look forward to speaking with you!
