At Okamoto Dentistry, we are a CEREC® dentist that specializes in creating beautiful smiles in one visit. By using the latest in dental technology, we can transform your smile into one that is bright, beautiful and one that you are proud to show off. If you live in the Pasadena, CA area, we invite you to call our office to discuss any oral health issues you are struggling with or anything that you do not like about the appearance of your smile. We can correct both in our 91105 dental office.
As a local dentist, we understand how uncomfortable it can be to smile when one does not like his or her teeth due to unsightly gaps, dark stains, or problems with their shape. When you visit our cosmetic dentist office, we can discuss any issues that you have with your smile and create a plan for how to address it. This is the standard approach that most cosmetic dentists will take. What makes our Pasadena dental office different is that we use the CEREC® technology to improve your smile in one visit. This means even the busiest of people can take the time to have their smile improved.
CEREC® Provides Dental Restorations and Cosmetic Solutions in One Day
CEREC® is the modern solution to your dental care needs. At Okamoto Dentistry, we use CEREC® to provide patients with better dental treatments in one day. The traditional process for dental procedures to treat damaged, stained, crooked or overcrowded teeth, involves taking an impression of the tooth. Upon completing measurements, the dentist sends the results to a lab to create the restoration. In the meantime, the patient may spend up to two weeks with a temporary restoration while the lab creates the new one. After the final restoration is complete, the patient returns for the bonding procedure and to verify that the restoration is a good fit. The two biggest challenges with this scenario come down to time and convenience. The traditional process takes too much time and is inconvenient due to the necessity to have multiple dental appointments and the need to wear a temporary solution.
However, as a CEREC® dentist, we complete the process differently. If you are seeking to improve the appearance of your teeth by straightening them, covering a dark stain, closing gaps or changing their size, we can do all of this in one day. The same is true if you have a damaged tooth in need of repair. We offer a one-day treatment without the need to wear a temporary restoration, made possible by the CEREC® technology. If you need a dental restoration, have a dental emergency, or simply need to improve how your teeth look, visit our Pasadena dental office for an immediate solution.
How The CEREC® Technology Works
Our CEREC® system can be used to create crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays while you wait. At Okamoto Dentistry, we take digital images of the tooth and mouth and immediately upload them into the software. Using CAD/CAM technology, we create a computerized image of the tooth along with the exact dimensions and blueprint for what the new restoration needs to look like. The software processes the information quickly before making comprehensive recommendations for the restoration. The software accounts for every detail.
We then send the instructions and specifications to our milling machine, which will effectively print the restoration in our office. You no longer need to wear a temporary solution and return for a permanent one at a later date. Since our software is so accurate, there is very little need to make any adjustments once the crown is in place. We can complete all necessary steps in one appointment. Beyond being convenient, the results are just as stunning as they can be using the traditional method. You will experience the results you are looking for as fast as possible so that you can begin to enjoy your smile again. To learn more, we invite you to call (626) 472-2178.

CEREC® Case Studies
A New Wedding Smile
At Okamoto Dentistry, we also treat patients who wish to improve the appearance of their smile before their wedding day. With the amount of pictures people will take, we understand how some people may prefer to improve their smile beforehand. To create your picture-perfect smile, we can correct anything that you do not like with your teeth, using the CEREC® technology. Since most brides and grooms are incredibly busy leading up to this momentous occasion, traditional crowns or veneers are typically not an option since they require weeks of treatment. In our office, we can complete the restorations during one visit covering dark stains, closing gaps, and changing the shape/size of the teeth. We can complete these procedures in one visit to our Pasadena dentist office. To learn more about this solution or to schedule your appointment, call 626-472-2178.
