CEREC Crowns could be the answer if you are tired of your old porcelain and metal crowns showing under your gum line. According to Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena dentists, CEREC Crowns are the best solution to old metal or old metal to porcelain dental crowns.

In the old days, patients didn’t have much choice with metal and porcelain being the only alternative when it came to dental crowns. Thankfully, that has all changed thanks to CEREC.

With CEREC, you can have a brand new crown that is custom made to fit and match the rest of your teeth perfectly, and best of all, everything is done in house so all you have to do is sit and relax while Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists do the work.

During your thorough dental examination, your dentists in Pasadena will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for CEREC Crowns, if you are suffering from gingivitis, or the more serious periodontal disease, Dr. Shinto recommends that you take care of those issues before continuing with CEREC Crowns.

Once you have been given the all clear, a digital picture, using CAD/CAM, will be taken of the tooth or teeth that are being restored with a dental crown. Once your Pasadena Dentists are satisfied with the results, the pictures will be sent to the milling machine for manufacture. During this process, you can relax while your crown is being made.

After the crown is completed, Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists will fit the crown before bonding into place. The entire CEREC Crown procedure takes about an hour to an hour and a half. You can walk out of the office with a brand new crown knowing that you will not have to come back for a second visit to have your temporary crown removed.
