CEREC® Dental Crowns In Elk Grove, CA
Even if you floss and brush twice a day you may still have a conflict with degrees of tooth decay involving either a dental crown or filling which is why using the method of CEREC® will help in the prevention of future breakdown.
CEREC® Dentistry Definition
CEREC® is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations in Esthetic Ceramic. This is a method that uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) to replace dental fillings and fix any teeth that suffered from chipping decay and more. CEREC® is created using ceramic dental materials that feel and look like authentic teeth.

At Smile Time Dental, our dentistry provides CEREC® tooth rejuvenation throughout the greater Sacramento area. We use cad technology and years of dentistry training and experience in dental crown design. The dental procedure is easy and simple:
- A simple exam to determine that CEREC® is the correct option for your dental filling or crown.
- Once approved the doctor will remove all of the damage and weak areas of the tooth.
- A camera known as an omnicam is used along with a special powder to take a 3D image of your tooth.
- The image is uploaded into the CEREC® software where it will mill the ceramic piece to perfectly fit your tooth.
- The CEREC® dental machine mills out a piece of ceramic to the specified shape is needed to be adhered to the tooth.
- After the tooth is constructed the dentist will stain it to a color close to your teeth and bake it to create a shiny glaze.
- The dental team will then adhere the crown to the damaged tooth.
The CEREC® dental procedure is a permanent solution to a fully restored tooth and after a short while you will be able to eat and drink as normal.
At Smile Time Dental we want your procedure to go as smooth as possible. Our dental staff will explain any questions or concerns you have with your CEREC® implant or dental procedure.
