Visit Dr. Eugene M. Azuma in Honolulu for Your CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
Among the benefits of modern dentistry is the ability to repair and correct damaged teeth to natural and flawless appeal. However, the precision and care it takes to create life-like prosthetics can be lengthy and isn’t always convenient for patients.
Dr. Azuma offers CEREC same-day dentistry in Ala Manoa, Honolulu, allowing patients to access dental care that is efficient, customized to meet their needs, and fits easily into their schedules.
One-Day Cosmetic Restorations
Chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics (CEREC) is a treatment method that involves digital workflows, mess-free treatment planning, and complete dental solutions in only a few hours, instead of a few weeks. Dr. Azuma first takes a scan of your smile with imaging technology that negates the need to use metal impression trays filled with goop. With these pictures of your teeth, Dr. Azuma can then virtually plan your prosthetics and send information to in-office equipment that takes a solid block of ceramic and shapes a number of restorations, including:
Crowns - Dr. Azuma can permanently reinforce, strengthen, and aesthetically restore cracked and damaged teeth with crowns in a day. Our one-visit crowns are also perfect for dental emergencies where a tooth requires immediate repair.
Bridges - Missing teeth make it hard to bite and chew and the time needed to create the right restoration for replacing them can be just as bothersome. But Dr. Azuma utilizes CEREC to create dental bridges as well as single unit crowns, so patients can leave our office with a whole and complete smile in one appointment.
Veneers - With in-office 3D scanning and a fabrication machine, Dr. Azuma can even create enough veneers to complete an entire cosmetic transformation in one visit. Imagine leaving our office with a flawless, bright white, and beautiful smile with same-day veneers in Honolulu.
We make it easy for patients to enjoy healthier smiles, without the weeks-long waiting period for naturally looking and strong dental restorations. Because CEREC designs and creates prosthetics based off of precise and comfortable digital scans, you can be sure that your crown, bridge, or veneer will be engineered to fit as needed and will match the appearance of surrounding teeth. No mess, hassle, or extra dental visits necessary.
Beyond Ceramic with Same-Day CEREC
While the word ceramic is in the CEREC name, Dr. Azuma can use a range of materials for creating your one-visit dental restoration, including e.max®, zirconia, and porcelain. Each material offers patients a combination of strength and aesthetics and can be recommended based on the location of the tooth or teeth that are being restored and patient-specific health concerns, such as a heavy bite, or color correction for stained teeth.
