Do you have any dental crowns? Did the process take a long time? Good news! Today's dental crowns are beautiful and durable, and you crowncan receive one in a single visit with Dr. Ken Yasuhara in Honolulu. Thanks to fully customized CEREC same-day crowns, your damaged tooth can be restored perfectly and quickly.

 

What is a porcelain crown?

A crown covers a tooth which is misshapen, decayed, infected, or has a large filling (and therefore, weakened tooth enamel). Resembling your natural tooth, this quality ceramic jacket protects the healthy part of your tooth, preserving it from extraction.

Your dental crowns will last for several years as long as you keep up proper oral hygiene habits and maintain a schedule of regular professional cleanings at our Honolulu office.

 

About CEREC same-day crowns

CEREC means Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Made right in Dr. Yasuhura's office, your realistic crown moves through planning, design, construction, and placement in one to two hours. Your dentist takes digital impressions and designs your crown using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) software. It renders an amazing restoration.

A chairside milling machine substitutes the role of an outside ceramist. Instead of waiting a week or more for a restoration, you can now have it bonded over your prepared tooth in just one dental visit. Accuracy and realism are hallmarks of CEREC crowns.

 

Other advantages of CEREC crowns

Amazingly, your CEREC crown will fit over your tooth with less enamel reduction than traditional crowns require, leaving more of your natural tooth in place. Also, isn't it great that you won't have to endure gooey oral impressions or an awkward-looking temporary crown?
