Same Day Crowns in Rancho Cucamonga
Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. Ceramill Motion 2 creates these ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office, allowing patients to enjoy a fully restored smile in just one visit to our Rancho Cucamonga dentist.
Ceramill Motion 2 is comprised of several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic restorative devices. Ceramill Motion 2 can benefit almost anyone needing a ceramic restoration. This is of great benefit to nervous patients, and it can also reduce the cost of treatment.
How can Ceramill Motion 2 benefit me?
Ceramill Motion 2 can benefit almost anyone needing a ceramic restoration. Exceptions include patients who have a prior history of breaking ceramic devices and those with a deep bite. Ceramill Motion 2 devices are proven to last for over 5 years, but recent research indicates that most Ceramill Motion 2 created restorations last for more than 10 years.
Additional advantages associated with Ceramill Motion 2 include:
No temporary restorations
High-quality ceramic products
Less injections and discomfort
Fewer dental visits

Long lasting restorations
What is the Ceramill Motion 2 system comprised of?
The Ceramill Motion 2 System is sometimes called a CAD-CAM system. CAD-CAM means Computer Assisted Design and Computer Assisted Milling. The Ceramill Motion 2 system has three major components:
Acquisition device: This device is home to a high-quality camera and a medical grade computer. The function of this unit is to photograph the prepared tooth. Three-dimensional images are created of the tooth on the screen, which the dentist uses to design the perfect ceramic restoration.
Three-dimensional CAD software: This software allows the dentist to examine the tooth from every angle. It is the closest possible thing to holding the tooth in the hands and rotating it.
Milling device: This unit actually manufactures the custom restoration from the specifications entered into the computer. A ceramic block that best resembles the existing tooth color is chosen and placed into the unit. Within minutes, the milling device produces the restoration the dentist designed.
What does a Ceramill Motion 2 restoration procedure involve?
The first step in the procedure is preparing the tooth for the restoration. Depending on your particular case, Dr. Castro will take photos of your affected teeth using one of Ceramill Motion 2 two imaging solutions.
These images are transposed onto the computer screen, where the dentist will view the tooth from every angle and design the final restoration. When the design is complete, it will be transmitted to the milling unit. The dentist will insert a block of ceramic, matching your tooth color, into the milling machine which will then create the full crown, onlay, inlay, or veneer. Before affixing the restoration to the tooth, the dentist will perform a dry fit to ensure comfort. Once a perfect fit is established, the restoration will be polished and affixed to the tooth with dental cement.
