CEREC® Pasadena Now Better than Ever

If you thought you needed two or more appointments for a dental crown, you haven’t scheduled an appointment with Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of dentists in Pasadena. Using the latest technology, you can have a new dental crown in less than three hours with CEREC®.

CEREC® is Better than Ever

CEREC® has been around since the late 80s, but since that time has improved and his stronger and more natural looking. According to your Pasadena dentist, CEREC® can last as long as conventional dental crowns as long as you practice good oral hygiene and keep pencils and other foreign objects out of your mouth. 

CEREC® for a Natural Smile

If you follow Dr. Shinto’s Blog, you will remember that CEREC® stands for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics and is a restorative and cosmetic dental procedure that takes place in the office. With CEREC® you don’t have to wait for weeks either. Because everything is done in-house, you don’t’ have to wait for your new dental crown or crowns. CEREC® eliminates messy and uncomfortable impressions as well. 

Pasadena CEREC® Dentist

Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena dentists are preferred CEREC® providers, and have been helping patients just like you, with natural looking dental crowns and dental restorations. 

CEREC® is used for dental crowns, small fillings and has even been used for porcelain veneers and dental implants. It’s amazing how natural teeth look when they have been restored with CEREC®.

Is CEREC® Safe?

CEREC® is made from dental porcelain and other biocompatible materials. Unlike metal to porcelain crowns, you won’t have to worry about metal allergies. Whether you think so or not, some researchers believe mercury in silver amalgam causes health problems. 

While most people are good candidates for CEREC®, only a preferred provider can tell for sure.
