CEREC Same Day Crowns in Salinas, CA
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This high-tech equipment can restore damaged teeth with beautiful custom ceramic crowns in a single visit to Salinas Valley Dental Care, completely eliminating the need for multiple appointments over a several week period.
The process can create a ceramic dental crown, inlays, onlays or veneers using a variety of technologies like 3D photography, and a computeraided design and manufacturing process known as CAD/CAM.
An intraoral camera is used to photograph the tooth, and the picture is loaded onto the computer. Using Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology the image is transformed into a three-dimensional model. This makes it possible to easily calculate appropriate restoration shape and size to create a near perfect restoration. When the model is ready, a milling machine creates the restoration using a highspeed diamond bur and calculated precision. The restoration is then bonded to the tooth using a resin material. The result is a beautiful restoration made by our team to fit your mouth perfectly. CEREC crowns are metal free and have been used for more than 20 years.Back
