A dental crown is a great way to save a compromised tooth. Broken, decayed, or worn down teeth can be restored to full functionality and exquisite beauty. You may be familiar with the procedure, as this is a quite common restoration. However, unless you’ve received a crown recently, from a technologically advanced dental practice, you may not be familiar with the CEREC procedure. Dr. Don Mungcal can restore your tooth in a single visit, with this innovative CAD/CAM technology!
Traditionally, dental crowns required two or three appointments. First was the preparation and impressions. Next came a waiting period of several weeks, while the crown was fabricated and shipped to the dentist. If the crown did not fit properly, the process would start again. We know you don’t have time for that!
Dr. Mungcal creates stunaning dental crowns right here in our office. After preparing your tooth, he will take a digital impression. He will design your crown using specialized software and three-dimensional images. The specifications are transferred to our CEREC chairside milling machine. It carves your new crown with exacting precision, from a block of top-quality dental porcelain. The doctor will check the fit and color before permanently cementing your crown in place.
CEREC is raising the bar in advanced dental care, by combining convenience and quality!
- Dental materials are constantly improving, and CEREC continues to incorporate the best of the best.
- The procedure is gentle, requiring only local anesthetic. However, we offer several levels of sedation if you prefer.
- CEREC restorations are color-matched to your other teeth, for a flawless smile.
- Digital impressions do not need uncomfortable trays or messy putty.
- You will not need to wear a temporary crown.
- The entire procedure only takes a couple of hours. You can walk out of our office with a dazzling, fully restored smile!
You deserve to eat comfortably, speak with ease, and smile with pride! If you have been postponing dental care because you don’t have time, CEREC single-visit dental crowns may be the solution you’ve been seeking.
