CEREC Same Day Crowns in Escondido

In & out in about 2 hours

The future of dentistry is available right here in Escondido

Are you familiar with the traditional process of making a dental crown? It involves at least 2 appointments (often spread out over several weeks) and wearing a temporary crown while you wait for a lab to create the final restoration.

CEREC technology changes everything. You can get a permanent, natural-looking, and high-quality dental crown in just a couple hours. Even better, CEREC eliminates the need for goopy, gaggy impressions. We’re excited to bring this treatment to you right here in our Escondido office.

Do you need a dental crown?

CEREC same day crowns escondido, ca
There are a few reasons why a ceramic crown may be necessary. Advanced tooth decay is probably the most common, but a crown may also be recommended if you’ve fractured or broken a tooth, or as part of a root canal or implant.

  • Covers the entire visible portion of your tooth
  • Restores the shape, appearance, and function of a tooth
  • Strong, durable, and resistant to stains and chips
  • Looks just like your natural teeth

Here’s how it works

CEREC is a computer-aided system incorporating a camera, computer, and milling machine into one instrument. This technology allows us to create your dental crown right in our office rather than sending an impression out to a lab.

  • We’ll gently clean out all the decay from your tooth, removing as little tooth structure as possible.
  • 3D imaging technology creates a high-definition picture of your mouth and teeth.
  • The software builds a blueprint used by the CEREC machine to mill your new crown from a solid block of tooth-colored porcelain-like material.
  • Once your crown is finished it can be placed into your mouth.

There’s no impressions, no temporary crown, and no need for a return trip to the dentist office.

Pretty simple, right?

My husband Gary recently had a new crown made at TLC Dental using a state of the art machine called Cerec. The entire procedure was completed in just a few hours start to finish and the crown is absolutely beautiful! One visit that was it! I can’t tell you how grateful he was to miss only a few hours of work to have this procedure done in 1 visit!  As my husband always tells me they are the best dentist we have ever had. So lucky to call them ours! Thank you TLC!

I had my first crown done today by Dr. Reyes and his amazing assistant Elena. I was extremely nervous prior to my appointment because this was what I considered a big dental procedure. They quickly put me at ease and I felt totally comfortable with them working on me. They were both very professional and showed true care during the whole appointment. While having a crown is a long appointment, it was totally pain free. Angie and Tricia additionally provided moral support 😄. I highly recommend TLC dental.
