Traditionally, restorations needed at least two dentist appointments since physical dental impressions were created and shipped to a dental lab. Board-certified dentists Drs. Alan and Yonatan Howard are happy to provide CEREC technology for one-visit restorations. The CEREC system uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) equipment to make your restoration in our practice while you wait. The Dental Office Encino utilizes the CEREC system to generate customized bridges, crowns, onlays, and inlays. The CEREC machine may also be utilized for cosmetic treatments to generate customized veneers. This revolutionary system enables you to avoid the hassle and time of physical dental impressions and multiple visits. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Alan or Yonatan Howard at their office in Encino, CA to find out more about the CEREC system.

Same-day restorations by CEREC at The Dental Office Encino allow you to finish your cosmetic or restorative dental procedure in just one appointment. You might get a customized bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, or veneers using the CEREC system. CEREC helps you avoid numerous trips, the hassle of dental impressions, and temporary covers. CEREC restorations may also be helpful when you have an emergency, like a chipped tooth or crown.
What to Expect
The CEREC restoration will begin with an appointment where Dr. Alan or Yonatan Howard will make your personal treatment program. The procedure will require an electronic scan of your teeth. The scan will allow Dr. Howard to design your restoration. Once the custom design is complete, your restoration will be milled by the CEREC system. The amount of time required to make your restoration will vary based on its dimensions. When the restoration is ready, Dr. Howard will complete and polish the piece before putting it in position. He will then adjust the restoration as needed so it fits properly and matches with your natural teeth.
Once your CEREC restoration is created, it's essential to maintain a good home dental hygiene regimen. You also need to schedule yearly dental examinations and twice yearly cleanings at The Dental Office Encino. At every appointment, Dr. Howard will assess your CEREC restoration and perform any needed repairs or alterations that will help keep your teeth healthy. If cared for correctly, CEREC restorations can remain in place for several years.
Restorations are usually partially paid by insurance. We'll get in touch with your insurer to ascertain your benefits and your out-of-pocket expenses. If you do not have insurance, then Dr. Howard will tell you about payment methods we take, such as medical financing through CareCredit.
