CEREC – SAME DAY CROWN | ONE APPOINTMENT


What is CEREC®?

Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. CEREC uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer single-day restorations for patients. This new technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers for patients so that there is no longer a wait between preparing the restoration and finally receiving the finished product. With CEREC, the technology is used while you are sitting in the dental chair, which is both economical for you and your dentist. The restorations created are metal-free and tooth colored to restore your tooth to its natural beauty, strength and function. With CEREC’s CAD-CAM technology, these ceramic restorations can all be done in one single visit to the dentist.

The CEREC Process

CEREC uses CAD-CAM technology to design and mill custom restorations during one visit to the dentist. So how does this process work?

Exam and Preparation

Before you get started, Dr. Truong will determine if CEREC is right for you. Depending on how much healthy tooth structure you have remaining, it may be a simple filling or you may need a crown. After reviewing your options, Dr. Truong will begin the process by administering anesthetic and preparing your tooth for restoration by removing decay and weakened tooth tissue.

Optical Impression

In order to make the desired restoration, a 3-dimensional image of the tooth that needs to be restored must be created from a digital camera scan of the tooth. This three-dimensional image will be used to create the restoration without the need to take a messy impression. This means no horrible tasting impression material for you to gag on. The computer and CEREC 3D software then converts the digital image into a three-dimensional virtual model of the prepared tooth.

Milling Unit

This device is used to create the custom restoration needed for the tooth. Based on the original color of your tooth, the dentist is able to select the correct colored ceramic block and in a few minutes, the milling device is able to create the restoration needed.

Placing the Restoration

After the restoration is made, it is ready to be tried on to ensure that you get proper fit and bite. When it is ready, the restoration is polished and bonded into place by your dentist. Therefore, no temporary restoration is needed and no return trip is necessary, saving you time and money.

Advantages to Using CEREC

CEREC has revolutionized the restorative process. It was created with the patient in mind in order to make a visit to the dentist as pain-free as possible. Some of the benefits to using CEREC are:

  • Most procedures can be done in one visit – less costly and less time-consuming
  • Less painful injections due to single-visit
  • No need to take messy impressions
  • No need to have a temporary restoration for in-between visits
  • Ability to save as much natural tooth structure as possible
  • Longer lasting restorations – may last over 10 years
  • Restores teeth to natural beauty, function and strength
  • Metal-free restorations

TESTIMONIALS

We treat our patients as if they were family.
Here's a few special testimonials we've received from them:

Easily the best dental experience I've had in 37 years! The staff and dentists are intelligent, experienced, attentive and great at what they do. On top of that, the office is all brand new. Equipment is all brand new. Everything is high-tech and super efficient. Although it's not a new process for me, it's helpful for those reading to know that if you need a crown, you can get it here in the same day! Seriously - go here. Don't let the lack of reviews deter you. I'm a massively picky person in all respects and pretty much never leave reviews. This place is far above par and deserves much praise! From Jonathan B. in San Diego
I absolutely love everyone here! They are so amazing with my kids and myself. Very cute & comfy little dental office. I love Rachel that works at the front desk. She is very familiar with the military dental insurance. And will take her time to break everything down on what’s covered and what you have to pay out of pocket. I will definitely recommend this dental office to my friends! From Michelle Sreng in San Diego
I went there for a second opinion and probably will now change primary dentists. The only way it could have been made better is if I didn't have to pay. Come to think of it, I didn't have to pay. (lol) All my questions were answered in an easy to understand and very comprehensive manner. Questions I hadn't even thought to ask were anticipated and answered. Time was allotted for my visit and I never felt I was being rushed or some sort of inconvenience to the staff. Speaking of staff, all were very pleasant and very courteous. Racheal, in the front office was a veritable fountain head of information and actually willing to work with one's (my) insurance company. All in all, I found it a great place. From Walter Gordon in San Diego
"The best I've been to. I'm terrified of needles, but I didn't even know that he had slipped me one. Painless and surrounded by good, competent helpers. I was very scared and they calmed me down. I've never experienced this kind of care before. If he will have me, I will be his patience from this day forward. I'm really not afraid anymore. Thank you Doctor and Staff." Joyce B. in San Diego
Hello out there I am 76 years old and had been to many dentist before. My son in law referred me to Dr. Truong at Bliss Dental Arts. I made appointment, arrived at 9878 Hibert st. and was immediately impressed with the appearance. My first contact with Rachel was very pleasant and easy. Emily, the hygienist was so nice and she did not just cleaned, scraped my teeth , she polished them too. Dr. Truong did 3 porcelain crowns on me and I got to see the 3D printer at work. I own 3 D stocks and got to see it in action . I was impressed with Dr. Truong. He explained very steps to me. The experience was wonderful and office offers good coffee. Rachel helps me gets the most out of my insurance. I highly recommend bliss dental if you need dental work done. From Harry H. in Mira Mesa

"Thank you all for the attention to my fears. You made me feel relaxed and there was almost no pain. Thanks for being so nice to my mother, she was a wreck, she was so worried.

Dr. Danny and Dr. Jessica are so awesome! This is my first appointment with their practice. From the moment you walk in it feels inviting, so it does not feel like a dental office.
