The benefits of CEREC crowns from your San Jose Dentist
Dental restorations can be a lengthy process involving several visits to the dentist office. Often, the first visit is simply for impressions to be made and sent to a lab for fabrication of the restorations. The dentist must then place temporary restorations while the patient has to wait on the custom ones to be made. Once the custom ones are ready, which could take several weeks, the patient will then have to schedule another appointment for placement.
All of this can leave the patient waiting a long time for their smile to be restored. This can mean more time away from work and family and require a great deal of patience.
Patients of Star Brite Dental and Dr. Lokhandwala in San Jose can have a much faster and efficient experience. Our team offers state of the art CEREC crowns. CEREC, or Ceramic Restoration crowns, offer same day restorations to a patients who want to receive veneers, crowns, or bridges. Patients can also avoid the need to wear temporary restorations. This means a savings of time, money, and energy for our patients. Gone are the days of multiple appointments for restorations. Patients can come to our office and leave with a new smile in just one visit.
CEREC restorations utilize CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions of your mouth. The software allows Dr. Lokhandwala to review your optical impression and design your restoration on a computer screen. We are able to choose porcelain that matches your teeth and mill the restoration right in our office. The entire process can be completed in as little as thirty minutes.
CEREC restorations offer the same quality as restorations sent off to outside laboratories to be made. Dr. Lokhandwala uses the revolutionary technology to match the color and shade of the restoration to ensure it fits in seamlessly with existing teeth. You can rest assured that you will be fully satisfied with your new smile.
