Same Day CEREC Technology
CAD/CAM technology allows us to eliminate messy dental impressions and virtually design your dental crown right here in our Ventura office.
CEREC uses 3D CAD/CAM imaging to create a virtual scan of your tooth, which is then processed by our in-house milling machine. Your new porcelain crown is made right then and there, completely free of metal and ready for immediate delivery.
Get It in a Single Day
Traditional dental crowns require two appointments to complete. Why? Because they have to be made at an off-site lab – a process that usually takes at least two weeks.
Dr. Speckman has been using CEREC technology since 2000. We are able to complete most dental crown appointments in just one trip to our Ventura dental office. Your CEREC crown is made to match your other teeth, without any bothersome “grey lines” visible along your gumlines.
If you prefer to sleep through your crown appointment, ask us about our oral sedation dentistry option. It’s a great way to relax throughout the entire crown treatment process.
