CEREC® Dental Crowns in Palo Alto
If you have a damaged tooth that needs repair, you no longer have to wait several days to get it fixed. With CEREC®, Palo Alto dentist Dr. Hakim will fit a crown over a tooth that has been damaged from wear, fracture or decay, in just one visit.
While you relax in your chair, Dr. Hakim will craft a CEREC® inlay or dental crown that precisely matches your natural teeth and skin tone.
First, she will prepare the tooth, removing any decay or unhealthy tooth structure if necessary. She will then take a digital optical impression of your teeth and mouth and enter this information into the CEREC® machine. Next, the machine custom-fabricates your restoration, which is then fitted in place. Dr. Hakim will assure a flawless fit over your damaged tooth and make sure it fits in with your surrounding teeth and bite.
