Restoring the smile with a dental crown is typically a process that requires weeks of waiting. From preparation to placement, many patients will find that they need at least two appointments to complete from start to finish. Dr. Mark A. Wong of Walnut Creek, California understands how busy families are today, and that two appointments and weeks between visits is not acceptable. He provides same-day dental crowns and restorations with the use of amazing technology such as CEREC.
What is CEREC?
Mark A. Wong, DDS describes the CEREC system as a way of creating restorations quickly and easily right in the office. This eliminates the need for a second appointment, saving time and money. It allows patients to relax in the dental chair as their new crown, veneer, or other restoration is milled in the office from a block of porcelain that matches the patient’s current tooth color. This method also eliminates the need for messy impressions after the tooth has been prepared, as images are taken digitally and converted into the CAD/CAM software system to fabricate a 3D replica of the final piece. With the use of this technology, patients can enjoy restorations quickly and easily during one simple appointment!
What are the benefits of CEREC restorations?
CEREC restorations are:
- Custom-made for the patient
- Strong and durable
- Made within 15-20 minutes while patients wait
- Functional and attractive
