The California Dental Specialty Group has done dental implants in Sunnyvale for decades. Many happy patients will vouch for the benefits of dental implants of which there are many.

Why Dental Implants?

Every year thousands of people lose their teeth to periodontal disease, injury, or decay. Dental implants take the place of roots so that dentists can attach a crown to the tooth and restore your smile. Here are the benefits of dental implants.

• Better looking teeth – dental implants are just like your own teeth. They look the same. They feel the same and they are permanent. Because dental implants look like your own teeth, you will soon be proud of your smile boosting your self-confidence.

• Enhanced comfort – dentures are not always comfortable. Yet, with dental implants, it feels like you have a full set of teeth. This makes eating so much easier and more comfortable.
• Permanent placement – for many people the need to remove dentures is a source of embarrassment. Dental implants remain permanently in place. No need for an adhesive.
• Long-lasting durability – look after your dental implants and they could last a lifetime. By comparison, you can expect a bridge to last ten years.
• Enhanced dental health – bridges are attached to other teeth which must be crowned in preparation for this function. Dental implants don’t affect any remaining teeth. They also make it easier to access all teeth so that you can floss properly.
• Dental implants stop bone loss – Missing teeth will result in bone loss over time. This will affect the facial structure and jaw function over time. Implants prevent bone shrinkage, ensuring good form and function for life.
• Dental implants keep other teeth in place – whenever a tooth is removed the other teeth will move and can become misaligned. Dental implants prevent this from happening.

Dr. Charles Land patented the ceramic dental crown in 1889. Though it took him until 1903 to create the first modern-day dental crown. It was a porcelain tooth cover used to repair and conceal a damaged tooth.

Dr. Land’s porcelain dental crowns remained in general use until the 1950s. Though they weren’t particularly strong. Many would develop micro-cracks during fabrication.

During the 1950s Abraham Weinstein developed dental crowns that combined metal with porcelain. This resolved the problem of the microscopic cracks.

The Launch of CEREC Crowns

In 1987 CEREC was launched onto the market, revolutionizing dentistry but it wasn’t until 2003 that 3D software was introduced. The innovations in CEREC technology continued unabated over the next decade.

Today dentists can make CEREC crowns using Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing equipment or CAD/CAM machines. These 3D printers can sculpt a perfect customized crown from a single block of porcelain.

The finished product will perfectly match your own teeth. CEREC crowns have no metal core so they look natural. They match the surrounding teeth in color, size, and shape. No one could tell the difference, so this is definitely the best option when repairing front teeth.

Now it is no longer necessary to sit through an uncomfortable, choking session while the dentist makes an impression of your teeth. We feed a quick scan of your teeth into the machine and the CAD/ CAM machine gets to work creating a CEREC Crown while you wait.

Why Choose CEREC Crowns

Dental crowns have come a long way since they were first patented. The CEREC crown is the result of more than a century of innovation.

CEREC crowns cut time and discomfort from what was once a lengthy dental process. Now, you can walk out of the rooms on the same afternoon with a dental crown customized to perfectly match your own.
