One-visit dental crowns, inlays, and onlays with CEREC technology

CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction. This system is a computerized 3D technology that allows Dr. Ivan Ho to create custom dental crowns, inlays, and onlays at the dental chairside. At Pro Smiles Orange County, we use the most natural-looking, safe, and durable porcelain materials available for preparing your prostheses.

Natural, durable inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are fillings that cover a large portion of your tooth. Unlike the direct fillings, our dental technologists prepare these restorations in the laboratory – and then bonded to prepared teeth – to restore severely broken teeth, or to replace an existing large filling.


In the past, dentists did not use tooth-colored filling materials for restoring damaged teeth. This was because, despite their excellent aesthetics, they were not durable enough to withstand the heavy biting forces on our teeth, especially the back ones. Therefore, inlays and onlays on back molars were conventionally designed using metal alloys.

This problem has been solved by the CEREC system that allows Dr. Ivan Ho to create beautiful tooth-colored dental crowns, inlays and onlays – for both the front and back teeth, exactly matching the color and shade of your remaining teeth. Our expert technicians prepare each CEREC dental inlay or an onlay from a single ceramic block, that is precisely cut to the exact dimensions and shape of your remaining teeth. The CEREC system also allows Dr. Ivan Ho to exactly match the shade of the prepared dental crowns, inlays and onlays with your natural teeth. Hence, giving you a healthy, lasting, and naturally beautiful smile.
