Same-Day Crowns (CEREC)

Same-Day Crowns (CEREC) near Manhattan Beach, CA

If you suffer from a broken or damaged tooth, it’s a relief to know that your dentist has the capability to fix your tooth immediately. At Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions in Manhattan Beach, CA, our office is equipped with the advanced CEREC system, an in-house technology that lets us create same-day crowns for our patients and restore smiles on the same day.

Benefits of the CEREC system

Dental restorations can sometimes take days or weeks to complete because dental offices are at the mercy of the timeline of the dental lab. Instead of waiting for customized dental repairs, our Manhattan Beach dental office has opted to invest in the CEREC system so you can get your smile back in one day.

  • On-site technology: CEREC is a computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-assisted milling (CAM) system that uses a milling device and computer design to create sophisticated dental restorations while you wait.
  • Flawless fit: When you are fitted for a crown and those specifications go to a dental lab, the restoration is fairly accurate. However, there is no comparison to the kind of impeccable accuracy your dentist can deliver in both fit and appearance when a crown is customized on the spot.
  • Incredible convenience: A broken, damaged, infected, or otherwise compromised tooth is a big deal, and you understandably want the problem fixed as soon as possible. The convenience of CEREC cannot be overstated. You go in with a problem smile and come out with a perfect solution, no need for second or third dental visits or fittings, saving both time and effort.
  • A natural-looking repair: There is always a concern that a dental restoration will stand out from the rest of your smile in a bad way, but CEREC same-day crowns are designed to look just like your natural tooth in shape, size, and color.

Problems fixed by CEREC crown-in-a-day

Dental problems never happen at a convenient time, and they’re even worse when you discover that the repair you need will require a few weeks to complete. Enter the CEREC crown-in-a-day solution – the strong, fast, attractive restoration for a problematic tooth, such as:

  • Infected tooth: Root canal therapy is usually needed to treat a deep infection, but once the root canals are cleaned and sealed, the whole tooth can be covered with a CEREC dental crown for complete protection.
  • Decayed tooth: Some cavities are simply too large to treat with a tooth-colored filling and require the robustness of a dental crown.
  • Weak tooth: If you have a tooth that is disintegrating and prone to breaking, its weakness can be concealed and its strength restored with a CEREC crown.
  • Unsightly tooth: Sometimes there is a tooth that draws attention to itself for its unsightliness. It’s stained or oddly shaped or otherwise flawed and gets in the way of the rest of your smile. A customized crown covers that all up.
  • Fractured tooth: A cracked, broken, chipped, or otherwise damaged tooth is at risk of deteriorating even further without restoration and its hairline cracks can also allow bacteria and food particles into the depths of the tooth, compromising its health.

Cost factors for same-day crowns

All dental restorations are cost-specific to every patient and their unique dental needs. The convenience of getting an on-site solution instead of waiting for a restoration to be readied in a dental lab will affect the price of your final treatment, but overall the cost factors for a same-day CEREC crown will include:

  • The location of the tooth
  • How large the crown is
  • Material used to make the crown
  • The dentist’s experience
  • Dental office location
