In-Office Custom Crowns
As your local dentist in Rancho Peñasquitos, we are proud to offer CEREC same-day restorations. If you have a damaged tooth that may need a crown, or you would like to improve the appearance of your smile by capping an unappealing tooth, Dr. Lee or Dr. Moeckel can use advanced CEREC technology to customize your ideal dental restoration or crown in as little as one appointment. Call us at (858) 484-4880 to schedule an appointment or come on in to Carmel Mountain Dental Care in Rancho Peñasquitos to take a tour of our CEREC technology.
When you know you need a tooth crowned, receiving treatment is an immediate need. With CEREC, we can see you and treat you in the same day.
Our in-office CEREC milling unit allows us to produce dental crowns on-site. No need to send impressions to outsourced labs or wait for restorations.
Because we handle the entire process in-office, there are no waiting periods, no third party timelines, and no need for uncomfortable temporary crowns.
"The team at Carmel Mountain Dental Care saw me same-day when I chipped my front tooth. They relieved my pain and fixed my smile in no time! I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in a dental emergency!"
"I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!"
CEREC, also known as Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to restore areas of damage and decay, and create a stronger, more natural-looking smile in as little as one visit. Using high quality porcelain and ceramic, dental restorations with CEREC look natural, feel strong and are built to last – just like your natural, healthy teeth.
If you have experienced severe tooth decay and require a filling and dental crown, your dentist may administer a local anesthetic before preparing the affected tooth. Next, an optical impression is made of the mouth in the form of comprehensive digital images. CEREC 3D software interprets these images to build a custom dental restoration in the form of a 3D virtual model. From this, a color-matched ceramic block is placed in the CEREC milling machine to carefully produce your new dental restoration. Finally, the new dental crown or restoration is adjusted and polished before attaching it permanently to your prepared tooth.
