CEREC technology is an advanced system for creating the most innovative permanent crowns. With CEREC same-day crowns, there is no need for temporary crowns, taking impressions with sticky materials, or going through weeks of being watchful of what foods you eat.
Thanks to advancements in dental technology, we are now able to offer you this same-day technology at Saddler Family Dentistry in Berkeley, California, and create your restorative crown in our office in only one dental visit.
Benefits of Same-Day CEREC Crowns
With CEREC same-day crowns, you won't have to wait weeks for your restorations. You can walk out of our office with a transformed smile that very same day.
We understand that the conventional method of taking molds of your teeth can be pretty uncomfortable. With CEREC, you won't have to bite into any messy material to create an impression of your teeth. The CEREC system will do it for you with digital images.
Traditional restorative methods normally require temporary appliances to be placed while your final crown is being fabricated. With CEREC, this will not be the case. You can have your well-fitted, customized crown in a single day.
As Dr. Saddler is able to make the appliance right in front of you, you will be involved in the decision-making process and make sure your restorative crown looks just as you would like it to.
Process for CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Once your candidacy for the treatment has been determined, Dr. Saddler will prepare the affected tooth for the crown and ensure precise measurements are taken for the restoration. Next, using the CEREC software, Dr. Saddler will capture digital images of your tooth and convert them into a three-dimensional model.
After the model has been created, Dr. Saddler will design your appliance on a screen right before your eyes. This step usually takes around five minutes. Once you approve the design of your new dental restoration, we will then send the image to our CEREC milling unit, which will manufacture your device out of a ceramic block that has been color-matched with your existing natural teeth.
In about 20 minutes, your new appliance will be completed and ready to be placed, polished, and secured in place after checking for proper fit and bite.
