Enjoy the convenience of same-day dentistry.
Dr. Michele Taylor is excited to announce our latest techie-addition: the CEREC milling machine and digital intraoral scanner. This technology allows us to craft beautiful dental crowns and restorations in just one appointment. Now, that’s same-day dentistry!
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restorations Esthetic Ceramic.” In other words, it uses digital scanning and 3D imaging to transform a solid block of porcelain material into a beautiful tooth restoration in less than two hours – without having to rely on a dental lab. This means:
How Is Same-Day Dentistry in Renton, WA Even Possible?
See how Dr. Taylor can mill your dental restoration in just one visit.
This commitment is a part of her passion for providing the best dentistry has to offer. With CEREC, she can deliver high-quality dentistry faster, leaving you more time for your day. How does the technology work?
Prepping the Tooth
Your Renton dentist will start the visit by examining and prepping your damaged tooth for digital imaging.
Using a wand, Dr. Taylor will take digital impressions of the prepared area, which are then transferred to a computer. The computer will create a 3D model of your tooth, and Dr. Taylor will use that image to craft your dental restoration.
Designing Your Smile
This is where the magic happens. You can sit in the dental chair and watch the CEREC milling machine sculpt your new restoration with a block of porcelain.
Walk Out Smiling
Once the milling is done, Dr. Taylor will polish, adjust, and place your permanent restoration. That’s it – you’re done! You can leave our office with your new smile.
CEREC is a win-win situation! It allows your Denti Belli team to meet the highest standards all while providing you with the best treatment!

Are CEREC restorations more expensive than traditional crowns?
No. CEREC restorations are priced the same as traditional restorations.
Is the material used for CEREC restorations the same quality as the material for traditional dental restorations made in the dental labs?
The materials are the same. You should have no worries about whether your CEREC dental restorations will prove effective for years or possibly decades.
How long will I be in the dental chair?
The average time to prepare and mill your CEREC dental crown usually takes between 90 minutes to two hours. Every case is different, so time spent in the chair all depends on your dental health and how many restorations you need.
How long will my CEREC dental restoration last?
A dental crown or bridge personally designed by Dr. Taylor will last a long time. With proper at-home care and by visiting our office every six months for a dental hygiene appointment, your restoration could last 10-15 years.
