Newport Beach Dentist Discusses the Benefits of CEREC® Same-Day Dental Crowns and Restorations

Newport Beach Dentist on CEREC CrownsDr. John Cross highlights the advantages of CEREC® same-day dental crowns for patients in need of smile restoration.

Newport Beach, CA – For many patients who are looking to improve their smile, dental crowns can be an ideal solution for oral health enhancement and smile renewal. The process often involves dental impressions, temporary restorations, and multiple appointments. With state-of-the-art technology, patients can receive quality dental crowns in less time compared to traditional techniques. Newport Beach cosmetic dentist John Cross, DDS offers a variety of restorative dental treatments at his practice, OC Lifesmiles, including CEREC® same-day crowns. The procedure can improve the appearance and function of a patient’s smile, often in one day.

Dr. Cross notes that with CEREC® crowns, patients don’t have to sacrifice treatment quality and comfort, even with the process’ enhanced convenience. He mentions that key benefits of the advanced technology include:

  • Same-day preparation and placement
  • Restoration of damaged, chipped, and fractured teeth
  • The ability to strengthen and further protect weakened teeth
  • Custom-made crowns from precise 3D scans
  • Results that are quality, durable, and natural-looking

In the same visit as a patient’s appointment, CEREC® crowns can typically be designed, crafted, and placed. With the practice’s 3D imaging system, digital impressions are taken and crowns are precisely manufactured without the need for traditional dental impressions. In regard to the strength and longevity typical of CEREC® crowns, Dr. Cross states that CEREC® restorations are constructed from some of the strongest all-ceramic composite materials. The crowns are highly durable and can be color-matched to blend in seamlessly with adjacent teeth. The treatment can round out smile restorations to create a more aesthetically pleasing and functional smile.

Dr. Cross has been trained in all aspects of the CEREC® system, allowing him to see firsthand how the innovative dental technology can benefit patients and their oral well-being. His practice’s commitment to providing effective and efficient treatment, as well as his own dedication to remaining up-to-date with the latest techniques in the dental field, can make OC Lifesmiles an ideal environment for receiving CEREC® treatment.

Dr. Cross has done such a fabulous job in the 8+ years I’ve been his patient, it leaves him with very little work to do on me these past few years. I appreciate how he embraces and has mastered cutting-edge technology. It’s also comforting that he remembers minor details about the condition of my teeth without even having to refer to my chart. The girls at the front desk have an equally impressive memory and are so sweet and friendly.
