We Provide Same-Day Crowns to Save You Time and Money
If you want to restore your damaged teeth quickly and efficiently, Mountainside Dental Group can help. We offer CEREC same-day crowns at our state-of-the-art clinic in Yucaipa, CA and La Quinta, CA. In the past, receiving crowns was a multiple-appointment process that required several hours of your time over the course of weeks. But that is no longer the case. Among the dental technology, we offer at our facility is the CEREC system. This tool will allow you to receive a crown in just one visit to Mountainside Dental Group. Patients from throughout the area have benefited from this technology, and you can, too. Call us today to learn more about the process.
What is CEREC?
In dentistry, CEREC represents Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. It is a system that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create dental restorations. The team at Mountainside Dental Group uses this technology to produce same-day crowns for our patients who need to repair tooth damage. Traditional crowns require multiple visits that involve messy impression materials and temporary restorations. CEREC eliminates the need for all of that. Our dental specialists will digitally manufacture your crown in a single visit.
The CEREC Same-Day Crown Process
If a general dentistry appointment at Mountainside Dental Group reveals the need for a crown to repair tooth damage, we will schedule a follow-up appointment that fits your schedule. We know you value your time, so resolving your oral health issue quickly and efficiently is essential. We will begin by anesthetizing the affected area and preparing your damaged tooth. This involves cleaning it and removing bacteria. Next, we will scan your tooth with our CEREC device to take a digital impression of your mouth. Using these images, we will create a computerized design of your crown restoration. The design will then be created using a specialized machine, which will mill your custom crown from a solid block of restorative material. After this process is complete, we will sinter and polish the crown before bonding it to your teeth.
Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
The quick process is among the leading advantages of using CEREC technology for your crowns. Mountainside Dental Group has been providing patients with same-day crowns for years. Other benefits of same-day crowns include:
- Beautiful appearance – Same-day crowns closely resemble your natural teeth, so it is unlikely your friends will even notice they are there.
- Durability – Studies show that same-day crowns are among the most durable and reliable dental restorations available.
- Comfort – Because same-day crowns are made using computer technology, they will fit snugly in your mouth and perform well.
Your Same-Day Crowns Are Made to Last
As with most dental restorations, CEREC same-day crowns’ longevity will depend on how you care for them. You must treat same-day crowns as you would your natural teeth. That means brushing and flossing daily as well as visiting Mountainside Dental Group for biannual checkups. Same-day crowns will last just as long, if not longer than, traditional crowns. You can expect to get up to 20 years’ worth of use out of your crowns if you care for them properly. During your general dentistry visits, we will examine the crowns and highlight any areas for concern as they arise.
Paying for Your CEREC Crowns
We want every patient who needs same-day crowns to be able to receive them. Therefore, we accept various forms of payment as well as most major insurance providers. Call our team or refer to our financing page to learn more.
