CEREC crowns are the preferred dental restoration for damaged teeth or after a root canal or dental implant placement. CEREC crowns are color matched to blend in perfectly with surrounding teeth.
For when a filling might ruin tooth structure integrity but a crown is unnecessary a CEREC inlay or onlay is the perfect dental restoration to restore a tooths functionality yet keep a natural appearance.
High-strength fillings and color matched to the tooth the dental restoration is being placed in. CEREC retain a natural biting surface that is otherwise lost in some typical filling methods.
CEREC veneers are created to perfectly fit over a prepared tooth that was originally damaged or discolored. The final product is a fully functional, color-matched dental restoration ready for use.
Our patients benefit from single-visit restorations including crowns, inlays & onlays, white fillings and veneers using a very high-tech piece of dental equipment called CEREC.
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction and represents a process where we digitally scan the area of your mouth where the dental restoration will be placed, designing a replacement restoration right there, and finally milling the final restoration during the same appointment.
Our patients don't have to walk around with bulky and uncomfortable temporary crowns and won't have to come back for a second appointment for the final fitment and placement of the dental restoration. If you are in need of a dental restoration, chances are CEREC can provide it in just one visit. We invite you to call our dental office at 530-823-2568 | Auburn or 916-784-6300 | Roseville, or request an appointment and let us answer that question right then and there!
We use a highly-sensitive precision wand to digitally scan the section of your mouth where a dental restoration will be placed. As the wand scans the area, it builds a virtual model of your mouth on a screen right in front of your eyes. You and your doctor can fine-tune the area until the virtual model represents your mouth exactly.
Once the digital model of the dental restoration area have been finished, Courtyard Dental Care will digitally design a restoration right there on the screen. It will be designed to be fully functional and fit exactly in the area where it needs to be place.
From there, this digital restoration will be sent to a milling machine where a color-matched block of porcelain will be precisely milled into the final restoration. This restoration is NOT a temporary, but rather the same restoration we expect to receive from a dental lab.
The final restoration is test-fitted to the area and any final adjustments are made before securely bonding the restoration to the tooth. You will walk out of our office wearing the final restoration in a single dental visit.
CEREC restorations are the quickest way today to receive a final dental restoration. Because of their "single-visit" nature, they are typically associated as a high-cost dental service. This is not always true and in many cases, a CEREC restoration costs about the same as a traditional restoration.
In any case, a same-day dental restoration is easily affordable at Courtyard Dental Care. We are a proud CareCredit provider which means your dental restoration can be financed in most cases with no interest rate for a set financing term.

Our office uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. Digital x-rays offer a detailed image of your entire mouth and also offer up to 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems, as well as provide a clear picture for a dentist to accurately diagnose and provide the necessary treatment.
We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to image other sections of your teeth.
The digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large and color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
We provide our patients with an intra-oral video examination. This allows both the doctor and the patient to see the condition of the mouth at the same time, then discuss treatment options.
