CEREC Same Day Implants Are A Convenient And Time Saving Option For Dental Crowns
CEREC is a revolutionary way to restore damaged teeth in a single visit in our office without gooey impressions or uncomfortable temporaries. We are pleased to offer our patients CEREC dental crowns – an advanced method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched, and highly resilient ceramic restorations right in our Aliso Viejo, CA office without sending anything out to a lab. From simple fillings, to full crowns or porcelain veneers, CEREC delivers results effectively and efficiently.

We can fix teeth with dental crowns by encasing the visible portion of the tooth that lies above the gum line. Dental crowns may be needed if:
What is CEREC actually?
Preparing teeth for crowns usually takes two appointments, but since we use the CEREC system, you will get your final crown during the first and only visit at our Aliso Viejo, CA office! After examining the tooth and determining the best course of treatment, the tooth would be prepared. Using the CEREC system, an optical impression is taken in the mouth using a state-of-the-art 3D camera. High-tech CAD/CAM software allows us to design every precise detail of your restoration with the accuracy and artistry you’ve come to expect from our practice. This software allows us to customize the exact shape of the restoration to fit the particular needs of the damaged tooth. Once the restoration has been designed by Dr. Claire Cho, the exact design specifications are milled on-site. In a matter of minutes, your all-ceramic, color-matched restoration is ready for placement. The new restoration is then fitted, polished, and bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural structure, function, and beauty!
