CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It's a dental technology that was first developed in the 1980s.Cerec Crowns It allows your dentist to create common dental restorations, including crowns, on the fly. It eliminates the need for patients to wait for up to a month between appointments to have their teeth restored. This option is available at Dr. Garrett Hayashi's dentist office in Honolulu, HI.

About CEREC Crowns
Before ceramic technology was developed, you would have been required to visit the dentist a minimum of two times in order to get a dental crown installed. Now you only need to commit to one appointment which will only last for about an hour. Impressions of your teeth are taken with CAD/CAM technology and immediately fed into a computerized milling machine. The machine etches out a perfectly contoured crown for your smile in a matter of minutes. Once it's ready, your dentist can bond it right away.

Advantages of CEREC Crowns
The obvious advantage of getting a CEREC restoration is that you get to save some time while also saving your tooth. There is no need to take additional days off from work or school to visit your Honolulu, HI, dentist since everything is taken care of in one visit. Another advantage is the accuracy of the milling machine. You are more likely to get a crown that fits perfectly the first time and that only requires minimal adjustments.

An Easy to Restore Your Smile
Many patients can benefit from having a crown installed, including those who have severely worn down enamel or cracked, chipped teeth. After root canal therapy, a crown can extend the life of a previously decaying tooth by 10 or more years with good dental care. CEREC provides you with an easy and quick way to have your damaged tooth restored.
