CEREC – Crowns in a Day!
CEREC dental restorations have been a fantastic advancement in dental technology that allows us to create custom dental restorations quickly and effectively all from the convenience and comfort of our modern dental office. Using CEREC we can create porcelain crowns, dental veneers, and bridges too!
How exactly does CEREC work?
After our team has carefully examined and prepared the tooth that needs treatment the CEREC magic can really begin. Using the CEREC system, we can create an optical impression aided by CAD/CAM which uses an advanced 3D camera utilizing the latest in dental technology. This optical impression is then used with CAD/CAM to design your beautiful new crown that is going to be used for your restoration.
Once the crown design has been completed, the complete specifications for your new crown are sent to our high quality on-site milling facility where your crown is then made. In what may be just a few minutes our milling facility can create beautiful, durable porcelain crowns designed with you in mind. In fact, every single one of the crowns that we make are custom-crafted and color-matched so that they fit right, look great, and make your smile the one you desire.
Once the crown is made, our team will carefully place this new restoration on your tooth and then bond it permanently. Using their skill and high quality dental instruments, our dental team will buff and polish the new crown until it looks and feels just right.
CEREC has some fantastic benefits, some of them including:
• Time – Because CEREC allows us to complete the design of your dental device in house, and allows us to create your dental device in house too, we can get you the crown, veneer, or bridge that you need in most cases in just one visit. In the past, creating a crown, veneer, or bridge was a time consuming process, and could often take a couple of weeks or even longer.
• Convenience – CEREC procedures can be completed in just one visit, which makes it more convenient for you because you don’t have to visit the dentist over and over again to get the crown that you need. In addition, CEREC is also convenient because it makes it so you never have to deal with the inconvenience of wearing a temporary crown.
• Metal-free Dentistry – Every single one of our CEREC restorations are made to be bio-compatible, metal-free aesthetic restorations. We want our patients to have great oral health, and by keeping your mouth metal-free we can help you achieve your oral health goals.
CEREC has been a real game changer, and makes it so that we can provide higher quality care more effectively and ever more safely. We are thrilled to see all of the wonderful results CEREC helps us provide to our patients, and cannot wait to see the results CEREC restorations can provide for you.
