Dr. Bauer discusses the benefits of CEREC technology when placing crowns
If you are looking for cost-effective and long-lasting solutions for restoring or replacing teeth, dental crowns and bridges may be right for you. Crowns and bridges can return your smile to functional beauty and, with our advanced technology, you can experience a new smile in just one appointment. In-office CEREC crowns are just as strong and durable as traditional crowns created by ceramists in a dental lab, but their same-day process significantly shortens treatment time, saving you both time and money. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Viorela Bauer, is trained in cosmetic dentistry services and in the software and technology needed to create custom, high-quality crowns in the convenience of our Arroyo Grande, CA office. With advanced training in dental porcelain cosmetics and membership with the American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Bauer remains up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques pertaining to dental crowns and is highly qualified to complete your restorative care. If you have damaged or defected teeth, our CEREC crowns can return your smile to flawless beauty—in one visit.
CEREC technology has completely digitized the dental crowns treatment process. To capture the structure of your tooth, we take digital images instead of paste impressions, drastically increasing the level of accuracy in design and overall fit of the final CEREC crowns. We upload these images into our 3D design software where we create your custom crowns. When the design is finalized, we transfer it to our in-house milling machine that precision cuts your brand new crown while you wait. Commonly completed in less than one hour, your crowns are virtually ready the moment milling is complete. However, Dr. Bauer takes great care in polishing and adjusting your crowns to ensure the most accurate and natural fit. Once bonded to your teeth, CEREC crowns improve your ability to bite and chew comfortably as well as restore the natural beauty of your smile.
