CEREC® Crowns are the best way to protect your teeth, especially if the thought of a flashy porcelain fused to metal crown isn’t your cup of tea.

Dental crowns are used to save a tooth that has been damaged beyond traditional dental restoration procedures.

CEREC® is Ceramic Reconstruction that utilizes a sophisticated software system that designs and makes metal free dental restorations in a single dental visit. CEREC® was developed by a company called Sirona and uses 3D photos along with CAD/CAM technology to design the virtual restoration. This eliminates the need for messy dental impressions and temporary dental restorations.

With CEREC® Crowns, you can have a brand new dental restoration in less than two hours. CEREC® Crowns look just like your natural teeth, are metal free and biocompatible. That means no more metal restorations, which could pose a health risk in some patients.

If your dentist has told you that you need a new dental crown, ask about CEREC®. If your dentist does not have the experience, or the equipment, contact Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists who are well equipped to provide you with CEREC® Crowns.

With CEREC®, you can replace your old dental crowns, cover root canals, and restore teeth that are too damaged for normal fillings.

If Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists determine that CEREC® Crowns are a good fit, your teeth will be photographed using the proprietary CEREC®. This allows the milling machine to carve out the restoration using a ceramic block that matches the color of your natural teeth.

Once the restoration is complete, Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists will bond the restoration to your tooth with a ceramic dental resin.
