What are CEREC Crowns?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns are made from a biocompatible ceramic material that mimics the natural look and feel of your teeth. Unlike traditional crowns, which require multiple appointments for impressions, lab work, and fitting, CEREC crowns are designed and milled right in our office using advanced computer-aided design/manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology.

With a global reach, he educates dental professionals worldwide on the profound advantages of this innovation and how it can transform dental practices. When it comes to embracing cutting-edge technology right here in Huntington Beach, Dr. Ford stands at the forefront, ensuring that your dental appointments are nothing short of seamless and comfortable. In our office, the CEREC crown procedure is a flawless journey, thanks to Dr. Ford’s exceptional expertise and deep knowledge in harnessing this remarkable technology.

Design: Using the 3D scan, your dentist virtually designs your new crown on a computer screen.
Milling: The CEREC machine mills the crown from a block of ceramic material based on the digital design.
Placement and Polishing: Your dentist bonds the finished crown to your tooth and polishes it for a smooth, natural finish.
