For those looking for CEREC teeth crowns in Aliso Viejo, CA, Claire Cho DDS has what you need.

What are CEREC Crowns?

  • Same day
  • Computer-assisted process.
  • Porcelain crown

A crown is a cap placed over an entire tooth and shaped to fit the tooth perfectly. A dental crown is applied when a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be repaired with a filling or other, less complex dental procedure. Crowns are an excellent method for saving teeth that have been damaged that are not necessarily in need of being removed.

CEREC is a type of crown that uses computer technology to make the crown and do so in less time than with a traditional crown. CEREC stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, and this is a type of crown that is done the same day. It is a ceramic crown that will be permanent and will last well if you take care of it.

This type of crown will be made and will be installed the same day while you wait. A CEREC crown will be faster, you are going to have less downtime, and you are also going to be able to leave the office the same day with your new crown in place. The process starts with an evaluation to see what type of crown your tooth needs. The computer will then make the crown while your dentist prepares the tooth for installation.

After the tooth has been prepared, the crown made in the office will be installed and affixed to the tooth so that you can use it the same day and not have to come back for multiple visits. It is an excellent option if you cannot make two or three visits, and you do want to get it all done fast so that you can get on with your life.

For those in the Aliso Viejo, CA area, Dr. Claire Cho, with the Claire Cho DDS team, can help you get your CEREC crown. Call (949) 541-2529 to set up an appointment today.
