Single Appointment Dental Care

It is common that when one thinks of an appointment with the dentists the fear hovers around and the mind’s imagery of soreness make one more uncomfortable. In past, the dental issues were difficult and more time consuming to part with because of unavailability of the appropriate technological equipment.  In old days Los Angeles CEREC dentist would fix an appointment with you and once you at our Los Angles office you would be given a local anesthetic and your dental impressions taken. When done with the impression phase a temporary crown or bridge or a mouthpiece would be provided to you to protect the restored teeth from the outer harms. This would be the end of the first visit and you would wait for weeks for the second appointment. During second appointment an anesthetic would be given and the temporary impression would be removed giving you a local anesthetic. Then finally, yes finally, your new restoration would be applied. For this whole procedure about one to two week would have taken. But now miracles of engineering have made this hectic procedure very simple, economical, and less engrossing.  This whole procedure of treatment will complete within one to two hours by our CEREC dentist Los Angeles.                


Finest Dental Materials

Using the CEREC system wasn’t that easy for dentists in the Los Angeles to restore the teeth. A few years back for the dentist, there weren’t many options for teeth restoration other than amalgam, gold, and other options but now with the CEREC treatment has become more convenient. With this new system, the dentist will restore the teeth in a biocompatible way with the ceramic and the teeth will look natural, brighter, having durability and strength.  The tooth material used completely blends with the natural teeth and you can enjoy your food and beverages without any concern and discomfort.  Also, our dentists try to save the tissues as possible because while bonding the material with the teeth ultimate care is observed.

How does Los Angeles CEREC dentist fix the issue?

CEREC dentist Los Angeles will first diagnose the teeth when you fix an appointment with us. Depending on the kind of the issue our dentists will reveal the possible treatment options to you. During diagnosis, it will be revealed that how much your teeth are in need of restoration i.e. do the teeth need a crown, bridges, or simple filling. Once the diagnosis is done the teeth will be prepared and a local anesthetic will be given while carrying the teeth preparation.  During preparation, the teeth will be cleared of decays, tartars, and stains.

The next step will be the preparation of the impression for which the CEREC procedure of CAD/CAM will be used and digital form of an impression in 3-D will be produced and displayed on the monitor. Using the special computer program for design of the impression our dentist will use his expertise by focusing on very minute details and a sophisticated model will be prepared. The model prepared by the dentist now will be sent to the milling machine in the office and the milling machine will choose the shade for your teeth according to the natural shade of your teeth. A ceramic block, having same shade as your teeth, will be placed in the milling machine and the restoration will be prepared by the machine within 10-20 minutes. Now the crafted restoration will be bonded to the prepared teeth and your teeth will be polished giving sparkling colors. The whole process will take a maximum of 2-3 hours and you will leave our office with new pearly white teeth having dazzling smiles.

How long does CEREC treatment last?

The CEREC crowns, inlays, onlays or veneers will last as lab crafted restorations last but there are few things which can affect the longevity and durability of the restorations like design, fitting, and bonding. It also depends on the care and importance you provide to your oral health, the more you provide care the longer will be the durability. It may last for as long as 20 years if proper oral hygiene is practiced and try your best to follow the directions of the Los Angeles CEREC dentist.
