CEREC

Dr. DeAngelis proudly uses cutting-edge CEREC technology to create customized same-day dental restorations. You no longer need to make multiple trips to the dentist to repair and restore damaged teeth. 

If broken or damaged teeth are straining your smile, CEREC same-day dental crowns offer a quick and easy solution. 

How Does a Dental Crown Protect Your Teeth?

A dental crown is a customized “cap” that mimics the exact size and structure of your tooth. It’s used to cover a damaged tooth and restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. 

Dr. DeAngelis may recommend a dental crown if your tooth needs to be reinforced and protected from future damage. If you are experiencing any of the following dental problems, a CEREC crown can help:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Uneven bite as the result of grinding
  • Severe decay that weakens the tooth structure

By playing an extra layer of support over damaged or high-risk teeth, dental crowns make it possible to maintain a healthy, attractive smile. 

Advanced Technology: CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) technology uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to perform the entire dental crown process in just one office appointment.

When you visit DeAngelis Family Dentistry in Carlsbad, CA for a same day crown appointment, here’s what you can expect:

  • An intraoral scanner takes pictures of your teeth to create a digital impression
  • The impression is sent to the CAD/CAM software machine that creates a digital tooth restoration
  • The tooth restoration is sent to the CEREC milling machine that mills the new crown from a block of medical-grade porcelain in less than 15 minutes
  • Dr. DeAngelis polishes, prepares, and places the crown onto your affected tooth

The entire process is quick, simple, and precise. No messy impressions or ill-fitting crowns. Just predictable, functional, reliable results!
