Same-day Dentistry — the CEREC Difference

Dentist with patient

Historically, learning that you need a crown has been a downer. That’s primarily because getting that crown used to require multiple trips to the dentist’s office. On top of that, while you waited for your crown to be created, you had to wear an often-uncomfortable, easy-to-disrupt temporary crown. 

With Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC), everything changed. Now, using CEREC, Arman Dayan, DDS, Xuan Yue, DDS, and Anne Kim, DDS, can offer all of our patients at Dental Arts of Beverly Hills same-day crowns

How CEREC works

When you choose same-day crowns, you come to our office like you would for any other dental visit. As you relax in our comfortable chairs, Dr. Kim, Dr. Yue, or Dr. Dayan prepares your tooth for the crown.

Next, they take an impression of your tooth. Using that impression, the computer-aided design (CAD) system and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) milling system — called the CEREC scanner — creates your personalized crown. 

This process usually takes a few hours or less. That means you don’t need to come back to our office on another day to get your crown. You can relax at our office or nearby while we prepare your crown.

This also saves you from spending weeks wearing a temporary crown while an off-site lab creates your crown. You don’t have to deal with an ill-fitting temporary crown, avoiding certain foods and chewing certain ways to keep it in place. Instead, you get your permanent crown the day of your appointment.

Once the CEREC scanner finishes your crown, Dr. Yue, Dr. Kim, or Dr. Dayan bonds it in place. You leave with the protection your teeth need and a complete, beautiful smile. 

At our office, our team also uses CEREC to offer same-day onlays. These onlays allow us to fix a minor cavity without impacting the appearance of your smile. 

Using CEREC for cosmetic dentistry

That isn’t all we can do with the CEREC system. We also leverage it for same-day veneers.

If you’ve wanted a way to transform your smile in a single day, don’t wait to ask us about CEREC veneers. With this option, you don’t have to wait while your veneers get created off-site. Instead, you walk into our office with your current smile, then leave with your ideal set of pearly whites. 

If you’re ready to take the waiting out of dentistry, talk to any member of our team about what CEREC can do for you. Call our office, or book an appointment with us online today.
