Need a Fractured Tooth Repaired Quickly? Consider CEREC Dental Crown Treatment
When you live a busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to factor dental treatments into your schedule. When dental emergencies arise, like a broken or fractured tooth, you need prompt and effective treatment. CEREC same-day dental crowns can meet that need. At the office of Claire Cho DDS in Aliso Viejo, your fractured tooth can be restored like new with CEREC dental crown treatment.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC is a dental crown treatment that can be completed in one office visit. In one appointment, Dr. Claire Cho can design, fabricate, and attach a dental crown to a broken or fractured tooth to restore its structure, function, and appearance. In contrast, traditional crowns can take several weeks to complete, requiring that you use a temporary restoration during the interim period. With CEREC, you can walk out of our practice with a beautifully restored smile on the same day of your initial visit.
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown Procedure
A dental evaluation by Dr. Cho is the first step toward getting same-day crowns using CEREC technology. Dr. Cho will assess the damage to your tooth to see if a crown is the best option for treatment. If so, we’ll prepare your tooth by removing some of the enamel to make room for your crown to fit naturally.
Next, we’ll take digital impressions of your damaged tooth and send these to our design software to custom-design a crown that’s perfectly suited for your use. This design is sent to our milling unit, where your restoration will be fabricated in as little as 30 minutes. Once your crown is made, we’ll do last-minute touch-ups, ensure it fits properly and cement it to your tooth to complete your treatment.
CEREC Crown Benefits
Same-day application is the most significant benefit of CEREC porcelain crowns, followed by:
- More accurate fitting due to the use of advanced technology for design and milling
- Improved functionality and appearance
- Longevity as CEREC crowns can last up to 15 years
