Discover the Benefits of CEREC Technology in San Francisco

Getting a crown is a necessary dental treatment for many people. Crowns help to restore your tooth after you have suffered from a dental infection or dental trauma. In order for a crown to be functional and attractive, it has to be custom-fit to the individual patient. If a crown isn’t custom-fit, it will not look right, and it will not provide a comfortable bite surface for the patient.

It used to be that crowns were crafted in an off-site dental lab. With this kind of set up, patients were measured for their crown, but then had to wait for weeks for their final crown to come back for the lab. In the meantime, the patient needed to wear a temporary crown.

Now, however, our San Francisco dentists are able to design and craft your crown right here in our office. We use CEREC technology (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) to create your crown during your appointment, so that you do not need to way in order to get the restored smile that you need.

CEREC technology mills crowns to our exact specifications in no time. Every CEREC crown is milled from luminous and sturdy porcelain, so once it is placed it can stand up to the wear and tear of your daily life. These are not stopgap, temporary crowns; these are high-quality permanent crowns that are ready in just a day.

CEREC technology is hugely beneficial for patients of many ages. We have found that using CEREC technology makes restorative treatment significantly less stressful and time consuming for adult and pediatric patients.

So, if you are in need of a dental crown, feel free to talk to our San Francisco CEREC dentists about the benefits of same-day dental crown treatment. We can give you all of the information that you need about restorative dentistry in general, and CEREC specifically.
