Until recently, if you needed a dental crown, the whole process from start to finish might take several weeks and require a few appointments. Those days are gone! At Ramona Family Dentistry in Ramona, California, you have access to the latest and greatest dental technology, including CEREC® same-day crowns. Nathan Christensen, DDS, and Hemant Sachdeva, DDS, are leading providers of CEREC technology. To restore your smile, call the office or book online.
A crown is a protective covering your dentist puts over your tooth when it’s damaged, misshapen, discolored, or compromised in some way. Crowns are usually made from resin, ceramic, porcelain, or metal. Crowns fit snugly and neatly over your natural tooth. Dr. Christensen or Dr. Sachdeva seal the crown in place with a long-lasting dental cement.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s a restorative dental system that combines 3D CAD/CAM technology with an onsite fabricator. The experienced dentists at Ramona Family Dentistry use it to model, design, and manufacture your permanent crown in a single appointment.
Nathan Christensen, DDS, and Hemant Sachdeva, DDS, often recommend CEREC same-day crowns because of their many benefits, including:
