Our dentists use CEREC technology so you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! For you, the dental patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
Single Appointment Dental Care
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist.
This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of local anesthesia, your tooth is prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth.
You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary prised off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on.
Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
The tooth is numbed, cleaned and shaped, keeping as much of your healthy tooth as possible. A special powder is sprayed on the teeth and a picture taken. A 3-D image of the teeth then appears on the computer. The dentist then custom designs your new cerec exactly for the best results. Once complete a button is pressed. The computer is linked wirelessly to a milling machine, which will then make your cerec exactly to the design in approximately 20 minutes. The cerec is then conditioned and bonded permanently to your tooth. All this while you are comfortably entertained by our in chair DVD system.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, our dentists can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function.
These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. So, your tooth does not crack, and you can go on enjoying your evening.
Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
Your dentist can use CEREC for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers. Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Enhance it with CEREC.
Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of nearly 20 years, this equipment has helped dentists place over 6 million restorations. Using metal free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC gives you the highest quality restorative care. Ask our dentists today about single visit CEREC restorative care!
