You could now get a brand new dental restoration in just one trip to the dentist.dental crowns

We know that our patients lead busy lives and that trying to schedule dental visits can be a royal pain. Of course, it’s also important that you get the dental care you need to keep your oral health on track. If you require a dental crown you may worry that you’ll need to come back for multiple appointments but our Santa Cruz, CA, dentist, Dr. E. John Baron, has some good news: Now you can get a dental crown created and placed in just one visit.

If you are dealing with a tooth that is severely damaged or decaying you want a restoration that will be able to protect the tooth and restore it so that it is as strong as it can possibly be. In most cases, the best option is to place a dental crown over the tooth. Of course, in the past, getting a dental crown often took multiple trips to the office to prep the tooth, take impressions and measurements, wait for the crown to be made and then to come back in once the crown is made so that it can be fitted.

Now, CEREC technology makes it possible to prep your tooth, create and make your crown right here in our office, and then cement the crown into place in just one visit. Here are some of the benefits to getting CEREC crowns from our Santa Cruz general dentist:

An Improved Appearance

Having a cracked, damaged, or even a cosmetically imperfect smile can certainly put a damper on your appearance. You may feel less confident whenever you open your mouth to speak or even to smile at a colleague or friend. Luckily, by getting a CEREC crown you’ll feel confident again in your smile in no time.

A Natural Restoration

We pride ourselves on creating restorations that look as natural and real as possible, and CEREC crowns are no different. We take digital images of your tooth, which provide a far more precise measurement of the damaged tooth. This means a dental crown that fits perfectly. Plus, we choose the color of the porcelain before the milling machine chisels out your crown, so we can offer you a restoration that most closely matches the shade of your tooth.

We Save You Time

Since CEREC crowns can be made and placed in just one visit this completely does away with needing to come in multiple times to our office. Plus, you won’t need to get a temporary crown placed over your tooth, which can be annoying and often crack or fall off before getting your permanent crown. Now, you can sit in our dental chair and get a new restoration in about one hour. This saves our patients a lot of time and hassle.
