How same-day crowns from our office in Bellevue, WA, can put your smile back on track!
Do you need dental care? Most people at some point in their lives will be afflicted with dental decay and end up needing to receive a dental crown to remedy the situation. Here at Bellevue Dental Excellence in Bellevue, WA, Drs. Man Sunwoo and Alan Ho provide patients with CEREC to quickly alleviate this problem.
More About CEREC Restorations
CEREC restorations are tooth-colored all-ceramic crowns that are created and installed in a single dental appoint. That's right! With CEREC, you won't need to shuffle back and forth to the dentist to receive care.
To begin the CEREC process, your Bellevue dentist examines your teeth to determine the appropriate treatment. If we discover that the issue can be solved with crowns, our dentist will remove the decay and shape your tooth so that a CEREC cap can easily fit over the tooth.
The dentist then takes an optical impression of the tooth using a special camera that sends a digital image of your tooth to a 3D software to convert the digital image into a virtual model on a computer screen.
The image is then sent to a separate milling machine in the office, and a ceramic block matching your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine to be carved/shaped (a process that takes about 10 -15 minutes). Finally, your dentist bonds the crown over your natural tooth and, voila, you're all set!
