Chetty and Dr. Chethan Chetty are your dentists for CEREC same day crowns in Los Angeles, CA.
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC combines CAD/CAM technology and 3D photography to create digital impressions of your teeth that can be used to create custom restorative dental work on the same day as the digital impressions are created. CEREC eliminates weeks of waiting on custom restorative dental pieces, such as dental crowns. In just a few hours, your new crowns can be created and placed.
Advantages of CEREC
A major advantage of CEREC technology is the same day service. CEREC can be used to create a variety of restorative dental pieces, including crowns, inlays, and onlays. Traditional methods for creating custom dental pieces require significantly more time as physical impressions are sent to a separate lab where the pieces are custom created. A follow-up appointment is then required to have the pieces placed once they are ready.
CEREC also has the advantage of utilizing digital imaging technology. CAD/CAM technology and 3D photography are used to create a digital impression of your teeth so there is no need to create a physical mold, which can be messy and uncomfortable. The messiness and discomfort of creating physical impressions are eliminated with the use of CEREC same day crowns technology.
