What Is CEREC?

Eagle Rock Family Dentistry offers CEREC dental restorations, a method of providing California residents with a CEREC same-day crowns in Los Angeles, CA.

CEREC Defined

When you need a crown, typically, you visit the dentist's office for a temporary fitting while you wait for an off-site lab to craft your permanent tooth covering. Using Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC) lets the dentist create your permanent crown in one visit. You may not have heard of CEREC before and that’s because it requires specialized training above and beyond dental school. The dentists of Eagle Rock Family Dentistry have completed this training.

Using CEREC lets the dentist create dental restorations at their dental office. This process combines dentistry with computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). The dentists of Eagle Rock Family Dentistry use the specialized equipment in their office in Los Angeles, CA, for CEREC same-day crowns. First, the dentist takes an impression of your teeth using computer software, then sends this information to the CAM equipment which fabricates the dental restoration. Once created, he implants it, bonding it to your natural teeth.

Although CEREC same-day crown restorations probably get created most frequently, dentists can also use the technology for many other restoration devices. According to the Journal of Dentistry and Oral Care, dentists can use CEREC to manufacture:

  • Crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Fixed bridges
  • Orthodontic appliances
  • Veneers

Many Advantages to CEREC

When you injure your tooth or decay threatens a tooth, you want to save it, understandably. Using CEREC lets you obtain a restoration in just one visit to repair the damage, whether to a single tooth or multiple teeth. Besides fixing the damage, CEREC provides many other reasons to choose it.

You only need to make one dental visit. For some, this fulfills a convenient need, but for others, it is a matter of a healthy mindset. Some individuals experience anxiety at visiting the dentist and reducing the need to do that to just a single visit can help them immeasurably. A crown typically requires multiple office visits, but CEREC same-day crowns require only one.
