The use of CEREC® technology has enabled dentists to complete in one hour and a single visit what previously required them multiple visits to complete.
Dental crowns have plenty of uses and are one of the most popular treatment options. However, one problem with them is that they often required multiple visits, with the second visit occurring a week or so after the initial visit.
Thanks to CEREC® or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic, dentists can now place dental crowns, among many other dental restorations, in much less time.
Benefits of CEREC® Technology
Fast and effective: With CEREC® technology, you can see high quality results in one visit. It starts with an intraoral camera that captures images and a computer that uses those images to create a 3D model of your mouth. This gives the dentists more accuracy creating the restoration. The computer captures and analyzes the dental restoration, allowing a unique state-of-the-art dental restoration that fits your mouth perfectly while you wait.
Better-fitting and less of a hassle: The dental crown process traditionally required patients to wait for weeks before a crown could be placed. This is because the dentists themselves rarely made the crowns, but rather only sent an impression to a dental laboratory. In the meantime, patients were fitted with a temporary crown. This process made it hard for the crown to fit perfectly and was such a hassle for the patients. However, with CEREC®, dentists can create high-quality dental restorations such as crowns right there in the dentist's office and place it on the patient's teeth, all in one visit.
No more need for taking impressions: Traditionally, dentists relied on taking impressions of their patient's teeth by using a messy elastic material. The dentists would then have to send the material to a dental lab, where the dental restoration was made. With CEREC® instead of using a messy elastic material, the dentist simply takes an optical impression of the prepared tooth. The whole process takes only a minute or two and provides very accurate results.
More attractive results: After the CEREC® machine takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3D virtual model that you can actually see for yourself on the computer screen, your dentist designs the restoration with the help of CEREC®'s 3D computer program. In just a few minutes and few clicks of a button, the machine produces an all-new restoration that's ready to be placed, polished and bonded in place. Not only that, but the restoration is tooth-colored, which ensures that it blends perfectly well with your natural teeth.
To put it simply, CEREC® is an advanced dental restorative system that allows dentists to do more in much less time. This then allows you, the patient, to receive the highest quality of care and best-looking dental restorations, all in just one visit.

I have been a patient for twenty years. The dentists are excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and gentle. I have had routine cleaning, dental procedures and problems from chemotherapy that were only addressed by them. I appreciate the new office, staff, and efficiency. I have recently tried other dentists but they are worth the hour drive from San Clemente!

I started going to see Dr. Jonathan years ago when living in Huntington Beach and now make the drive from Los Angeles where now live. Dr. Jonathan is super nice and professional. His calm and confidence puts me at ease. Let's face it, no one likes going to the dentist, but Dr Jonathan and his staff make the experience an easy one.
