Same-Day Crowns in Bakersfield
When needing dental care, you may feel anxiety both from the treatments and from the amount of time they require. Missing time from our jobs and finding a moment in our demanding schedules for dental appointments are part of the reasons people stress over dental care.
At Auburn Dental Center, we use CEREC technology to expedite your treatments, so you can avoid multiple trips to the dentist and receive your care faster. Dr. Roger V. Pham provides this innovative service to patients living in College Heights, Bakersfield, and Hillcrest.
CEREC uses CAD/CAM Technology for Same-Day Manufacturing of Restorations
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This technology uses computer assisted designing software (CAD) to take 3D digital x-rays, which are the most accurate images available. These images are sent to a milling machine, which uses computer-assisted manufacturing (CAM) to construct your restorations.
A milling machine uses CEREC’s CAD/CAM technology to precisely sculpt a block of ceramic into a customized porcelain restoration usually within an hour’s time. With this innovative technology, you avoid the need of a temporary prosthetic and return trips to the dentist.
CEREC Technology Provides Lustrous and Precise Dental Prosthetics
CEREC technology can fabricate crowns, onlays, inlays, bridges and porcelain veneers using lustrous porcelain. Once teeth are prepared for their restorations, they are digitally scanned, so your impressions avoid the use of messy molds. You can relax while your prosthetic is being fabricated. The dentist then places your restoration and makes any necessary adjustments.
