CEREC Crowns, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a tooth restoration technology that allows dentists to create inlays, onlays, bridges and crowns in a single visit. From a cracked tooth to a restoration of a large, aged filling, CEREC offers an approximate and biocompatible solution to restorations.
The office of Dr. Okada offers a precise, metal-free and speedy solution to traditional prosthetics with single appointment CEREC Crowns. Usually with ceramic, composite, silicate core or a combo that suits specific needs of the patient.
With a smart combination of x-rays and digital technology, dentists can create and deliver prosthetic restorations in a single appointment instead of waiting weeks for their prosthetics to be ready. With a high definition camera scan of the patient’s teeth, plus a computer-aided design technology (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing technology (CAM), patients walk out of their visit with a restoration so approximate that the shape and transparency of surrounding teeth match the restoration.
