La Mesa, CA dental office provides same-day crowns with CEREC technology

Patients of the La Mesa, California area who are interested in working with a team of professionals providing the most advanced solutions for restorative care, are welcome to work with Drs. Richard Evans and Christine Allen of Summit Dental of La Mesa. Their practice proudly offers a solution for same-day restorations such as dental crowns called CEREC.

What is CEREC?

Our dentists are available to educate patients on ways to improve their smile, with a dental crown, many patients can protect vulnerable teeth or add an extra layer of protection against damage. Dental crowns, or “caps,” are fabricated right in our office using our CEREC technology. CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” This acronym describes the restorations that are made with the CAD/CAM software and device. The dental crowns that are milled out of porcelain right in our office are just as strong and beautiful as laboratory-created ones.

How easy is it to get CEREC crowns?

CEREC crowns can be designed, made, and bonded into place during the same appointment, saving everyone extensive time that is often required in traditional dental offices where restorations are made at an outside laboratory. Preparations and impressions are made and then used through the software digitally to create the new restoration while patients relax in the treatment chair.

What are the benefits of CEREC crowns?

CEREC crowns are advantageous because they are:

  • Fast
  • Strong
  • Beautiful
  • Natural-looking
  • Precise

Instead of having to wait weeks for your final restoration to come in from a ceramist that may be located states away, in most cases you can have the entire process finished during a single visit.
