Why Should I Consider CEREC Dental Crowns?

If you need a crown, there are a few options to choose from including gold, porcelain and metal, or pure porcelain, but all of them have one thing in common; you have to wait for them to come back from the dental laboratory. That means you will need at least two Crowns appointments. Now you have another option; it’s called CEREC and it’s a revolutionary new way to give you a new crown in one visit! CEREC crowns are created by skilled dentists, like Dr. Jason Ako of Kahala Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Honolulu, Hawaii. He wants to introduce you to the magic of CEREC one-visit crowns.

For conventional crowns, your tooth is prepared to receive the crown, and molds are taken of your mouth. These are sent off to the dental laboratory where technicians create your new crown. The crown is sent back to the office, where it is cemented at a later appointment. The entire process can take weeks, and during this waiting period, you are stuck wearing an unsightly, poorly fitting temporary crown.

CEREC crowns eliminate the entire waiting process. The unique one-visit technique of CEREC provides you with a sparkling new porcelain crown right in the office during your appointment with your Honolulu dentist. The CEREC process uses computer assisted technology known as CAD-CAM which designs and creates your crown to fit exactly the first time. That’s all there is to it; no waiting weeks for your crown to arrive and no ugly temporary crown to wear!

CEREC crowns are a beautiful, sparkling addition to your smile. The process is quick, which is perfect for your busy lifestyle. So if you want to spare yourself the time and discomfort of conventional crown treatment, CEREC is the perfect choice.
