Dental crowns can improve your smile in several ways. They can strengthen damaged teeth and restore daily biting and chewing functions. Crowns can also improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues, such as cracks or discolorations. Traditional crowns take some time to be made, but new CEREC technology makes it possible to restore your smile in one day with custom composite porcelain crowns. Dr. James Zimmerman, the skilled dentist at our office in Woodland, CA, can strengthen and improve your smile with dental crowns.

CEREC Technology

CEREC is an exciting technology that makes it possible to create custom composite restorations, such as dental crowns, in one day. CEREC utilizes both computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs. The CAD program generates a digital 3D model of the teeth that can be used to create custom crowns. The CAM program is then used to fabricate the new crowns on the spot while you wait. As soon as the crowns are ready, they can be bonded in place. You can enjoy your new and improved smile right away.

CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

CEREC crowns and traditional crowns are both effective options for improving your smile. They can make damaged teeth stronger so normal biting and chewing functions are restored. Both types of crowns can also protect teeth from sustaining further wear and tear. Additionally, CEREC and traditional crowns can improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, or stains. Plus, both types of crowns look completely natural and are custom made for the best possible fit.

A significant difference between CEREC crowns and traditional crowns is time. Traditional crowns require multiple appointments over the span of several weeks to complete the process of improving your smile. The process involves creating a physical mold of the teeth and then sending it to a dental lab where the crowns will be custom made. Once ready, the crowns must be sent back to the dental office to be bonded in place. The entire process can take several weeks.

With CEREC crowns, everything is done right in our office so you can enjoy a renewed smile immediately. There is no waiting. Plus, the use of 3D digital imaging software eliminates the need to create a physical mold, which can be both messy and uncomfortable, particularly for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex. The experienced dentist at our office in Woodland, CA, can improve your smile in one visit with CEREC crowns.

CEREC porcelain crowns can improve your smile, whether you need to strengthen and restore damaged teeth or with to conceal cosmetic imperfections. To find out if CEREC crowns are right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Zimmerman, our highly trained dentist, by calling our office in Woodland, CA, at (530) 661-1155.
