Time is our most valuable asset. One of Dr. Parker’s goals with dental crown treatment is to utilize your time as the patient as effectively as possible. We try our best to limit the number of visits to our office near Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo needed to get your porcelain crown treatment done.CAD/CAM dentistry is the future today. With modern imaging, Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch can provide porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays the same day.
Traditional methods use an impression and a temporary dental crown for a few weeks with multiple appointments. We can have you in and out of our office near Rancho Santa Margarita in a couple of hours with your new dental crown restoration.
There is nothing more convenient and clinically optimal. The damage to your tooth is minimized because it is restored the same day as it is prepared with porcelain crowns.
What Is CAD/CAM?
CAD means Computer Assisted Design. CAM means Computer Assisted Milling. We can take a 3D scan of your teeth with a digital scanner and then use it to design your porcelain dental crown, onlay, or inlay, customized to your bite and surrounding teeth. That information is then sent to a milling unit in our Ladera Ranch office that cuts the restoration out of a solid block of porcelain.

- While it is possible to do it in one visit, a dental crown treatment can be split into two visits if your schedule does not permit 2 – 2.5 hours for the visit.
- A porcelain dental crown restoration is strong enough to last yet conservative enough of a procedure that it still preserves a large portion of the natural tooth structure.
- Porcelain dental crowns have obvious functional benefits, but they are also aesthetically pleasing in that they are meticulously matched to the natural color of your teeth.
