When you visit our cosmetic dentist office, we can discuss any issues that you have with your smile and create a plan for how to address it. This is the standard approach that most cosmetic dentists will take. What makes our Irvine dental office different is that we use the CEREC® technology to improve your smile in one visit. This means even the busiest of people can take the time to have their smile improved.

CEREC® Provides Dental Restorations and Cosmetic Solutions in One Day

CEREC® is the modern solution to your dental care needs. At Smile by Design Dental Group, we use CEREC® to provide patients with better dental treatments in one day. The traditional process for dental procedures to treat damaged, stained, crooked or overcrowded teeth, involves taking an impression of the tooth. Upon completing measurements, the dentist sends the results to a lab to create the restoration. In the meantime, the patient may spend up to two weeks with a temporary restoration while the lab creates the new one. After the final restoration is complete, the patient returns for the bonding procedure and to verify that the restoration is a good fit. The two biggest challenges with this scenario come down to time and convenience. The traditional process takes too much time and is inconvenient due to the necessity to have multiple dental appointments and the need to wear a temporary solution.

However, as a CEREC® dentist, we complete the process differently. If you are seeking to improve the appearance of your teeth by straightening them, covering a dark stain, closing gaps or changing their size, we can do all of this in one day. The same is true if you have a damaged tooth in need of repair. We offer a one-day treatment without the need to wear a temporary restoration, made possible by the CEREC® technology. If you need a dental restoration, have a dental emergency, or simply need to improve how your teeth look, visit our Irvine dental office for an immediate solution.

How The CEREC® Technology Works

Our CEREC® system can be used to create crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays while you wait. At Smile by Design Dental Group, we take digital images of the tooth and mouth and immediately upload them into the software. Using CAD/CAM technology, we create a computerized image of the tooth along with the exact dimensions and blueprint for what the new restoration needs to look like. The software processes the information quickly before making comprehensive recommendations for the restoration. The software accounts for every detail.

We then send the instructions and specifications to our milling machine, which will effectively print the restoration in our office. You no longer need to wear a temporary solution and return for a permanent one at a later date. Since our software is so accurate, there is very little need to make any adjustments once the crown is in place. We can complete all necessary steps in one appointment. Beyond being convenient, the results are just as stunning as they can be using the traditional method. You will experience the results you are looking for as fast as possible so that you can begin to enjoy your smile again. To learn more, we invite you to call (949) 336-3404.
