Why Should I Choose CEREC Dental Crowns Versus Lab-Created Alternatives?
Dr. Claire Cho of the Dental Health and Aesthetics Center of Aliso Viejo, California, is open to helping patients with general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions for the smile. This includes dental crowns, a popular option for patients with large cavities, severely damaged teeth, or teeth that have had root canal therapy. Her office is pleased to offer CEREC dental crowns, which compare in cost with traditional lab-created restorations but are made in a single appointment instead of over several weeks and two visits.
What is the Purpose of a Crown?
The dental crown is a restorative procedure used to cap or cover a tooth. A crown is used for several reasons, including:
- To protect a natural tooth that has been damaged or is at risk of breaking
- To restore a tooth that has worn down
- To support teeth with a large filling
- To improve the appearance of a tooth
Crowns are fabricated from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and metal. At Dental Health and Aesthetics Center, we recommend using porcelain restorations as they are made to match the rest of your smile for a seamless appearance. Additionally, these restorations are made right in our office with our CEREC technology.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a special CAD/CAM software and a milling device that can create same-day dental crowns. Dr. Claire Cho is our dentist who oversees the fabrication of these restorations, ensuring they match and are as strong as lab-created restorations.
How Long Will I Enjoy My Dental Crowns?
Crowns are permanent fixtures in your mouth and can last for many years with proper care. This includes regular dental visits and examinations, professional cleanings, and good oral hygiene habits each day at home.
