Revolutionizing Dental Crowns with CEREC Technology

In Redwood City, CA, Seaport Family Dental is transforming the traditional approach to dental restorations with cutting-edge CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Steven Deng, DDS, this innovative system offers patients the luxury of receiving custom-fitted, high-quality dental crowns in a single visit. This breakthrough not only enhances the efficiency of dental care but also significantly improves patient comfort and satisfaction. Let’s delve into how CEREC technology is revolutionizing the crown fitting process, marking a new era in restorative dentistry.

The Traditional Crown Procedure: A Lengthy Process

Traditionally, the process of getting a dental crown involves multiple appointments. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared, impressions are taken, and a temporary crown is placed. Patients then wait for weeks for the dental laboratory to fabricate their permanent crowns. This process can be inconvenient and sometimes uncomfortable for patients who are eager to complete their dental restoration.

Enter CEREC: A Game-Changer in Dental Restorations

CEREC technology streamlines this process dramatically. By integrating advanced 3D imaging technology with a precision milling machine right in the dental office, CEREC allows for the design, fabrication, and fitting of ceramic crowns within a single appointment. Here’s why CEREC is considered a game-changer:

  • Speed and Efficiency: Patients can have their custom crowns designed, created, and fitted in just one visit to Seaport Family Dental, eliminating the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments.
  • Precision and Comfort: 3D imaging provides accurate measurements for a perfect fit, ensuring the crown feels natural and comfortable.
  • High-Quality Materials: CEREC crowns are made from durable ceramic that matches the natural color of your teeth, ensuring a beautiful, long-lasting result.
  • Minimally Invasive: The process is more conservative in preserving tooth structure, thanks to the precision of digital impressions and milling.

The CEREC Procedure: A Closer Look

The CEREC process at Seaport Family Dental, spearheaded by Dr. Deng, encompasses a few key steps:

  1. Digital Impressions: Dr. Deng uses a special camera to take accurate 3D images of your tooth, avoiding the discomfort of traditional dental impressions.
  2. Design Phase: On a computer, Dr. Deng designs the crown with precision to ensure a perfect match with your teeth’s natural shape and alignment.
  3. On-site Milling: The design is then sent to the in-office CEREC milling machine, which carves the crown from a ceramic block in a shade that matches your teeth.
  4. Final Fitting: The crown is tried for fit, adjusted if necessary, and then permanently bonded to your tooth, all within the same appointment.

The Benefits of CEREC for Patients

Patients at Seaport Family Dental who have experienced the CEREC process report numerous benefits:

  • Time Savings: The single-visit procedure frees up your schedule and gets you back to your life and work with minimal interruption.
  • Comfort: With no need for temporary crowns or impression materials, the overall experience is more comfortable.
  • Aesthetic Results: CEREC crowns are aesthetically pleasing, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth for a radiant smile.
  • Durability: Made from high-quality ceramic, CEREC crowns are durable and designed to last, providing excellent patient value.
