At DeAnza Dentistry, we believe that our patients deserve the best. We are pleased to offer our patients a superior dental experience and top-notch service upon each and every visit. We are continuously improving our process, shortening wait times, and seeking out the most advanced dental technology available to streamline your visit and enhance your comfort during your visit with us.
One of these innovative technologies offered at DeAnza Dentistry are same day EMax crowns. Typically, dental crown procedures take two or more visits to complete. In the meantime, a temporary crown must be worn. EMax crowns, however, are custom all-ceramic crowns designed and crafted from right here in our dentist office using the revolutionary CEREC system, which can generate your custom-tailored dental Emax crown in just one visit.
How does the CEREC system work?
The CEREC system eliminates the need for dental impressions and temporary crowns and lessens the amount of injections and drilling that is typically required to place a dental crown, altogether streamlining the dental crown process for our patients.
Here’s how it works:
First, we will prepare your tooth in the same way we would a conventional dental crown.
Next, instead of taking a dental impression as is traditionally required for a dental crown, we use a special high-tech dental camera to take a digital image of your tooth. The resulting digital image is used as a guide for your EMax crown design. Once the design is perfected to match the exact shape, size and shading of your natural tooth, the digital rendering is sent to the CEREC machine, which creates an exact replica of your tooth in as few as six minutes!
The final step in the procedure involves double-checking that your crown matches seamlessly with your adjacent teeth, then attaching the final crown to your tooth. Thanks to this advanced technology, all of this can be completed in just one short visit with us.
What are the benefits of the EMax crown?
EMax crowns are all-ceramic dental crowns that offer a superior look and longer-lasting lifespan than other types of dental crowns. They are highly durable, attractive and considered to be the best match with your own natural teeth.
The EMax crown itself is built from a block of lithium disilicate ceramic – a top-grade and tough material that is ideal for dental crowns. Its translucent color allows for the perfect match with your natural teeth. In addition, there is no metal alloy base used, meaning there will be no unattractive silver or gold line showing through between your dental crown and gumline. Finally, the durability of EMax crowns are unlike any other, making them highly unlikely to crack or fracture like other types of dental crown material can.
