CEREC is a new dental process for restoring damaged teeth. If your teeth are discolored, cracked, chipped, or cavity-ridden, this may be the right approach for you. Many traditional crowns are made of metal or resin, but CEREC uses a high-grade ceramic that won’t irritate your gums. Metal fillings can fall out, weaken your tooth, or hide persistent decay. In most cases, they need to be replaced every 10 years. With CEREC ceramic, we can eliminate these issues.
We start all of our appointments by sitting down and talking with you. Our team will answer any questions that you may have. Next, our dentist applies a thin layer of reflective powder to your teeth and takes detailed photos with a special 3D camera. We upload these images to CEREC’s proprietary software, where we can personalize your caps or fillings.
We form them meet your goals for comfort, function, and allure. A diamond bur etches the final designs into high-quality ceramic. Once we have the pieces, we simply bond them to your teeth with a strong, medical-grade adhesive. You will be on your way home with a beautiful smile in a matter of hours.
We can choose a color that closely matches the rest of your teeth so that your CEREC prostheses are not noticeable. Milled ceramic is also stronger than layering and pressing or white composite fillings.
Today, there's no need to merely imagine how nice it would be to have a dental crown fabricated in a single visit. With CEREC technology and advanced systems of care, multiple trips to the dentist are a thing of the past! Now, one appointment is all it takes for our skilled and experienced dentist to design, fabricate, and place a naturally beautiful and long-lasting same-day crown. And, best of all, unlike conventional methods of care, you won't have to endure messy dental impressions, wear a temporary crown, or wait weeks for your permanent restoration to come back from the laboratory.
Offering a level of precision and comfort that exceeds conventional methods of care, CEREC technology is nothing short of amazing! Advanced CAD/CAM technology, which stands for computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, enables our dentist to translate images from an optically scan tooth into a 3D virtual model upon which a custom crown can be digitally designed. Once this step is done, the detailed specs are then wirelessly transmitted to a chairside 3D milling machine to fabricate your new ceramic crown while you wait!
With conventional methods of care, a dental crown can take two to three visits to fabricate and place. However, thanks to the benefits of CEREC technology, we can prepare a tooth, then design, fabricate, and place your new crown, all while you wait.
With CEREC same-day crowns, there's none of the mess of conventional dental impressions, wearing dental temporaries, or waiting for the final crown to come back from the lab. Once the prepared tooth is optically scanned and the restoration digitally designed, your new crown can be milled from the highest quality of dental ceramics that very same visit.
CEREC same-day crowns and restorations are fabricated from the highest quality of dental ceramics. Because dental porcelain reflects light in much the same way as dental enamel, your new crown will look flawless, completely natural, and blend seamlessly with your smile.
A CEREC same-day crown offers much more than a convenient approach to getting a dental crown. It is also a high quality, naturally beautiful, extremely durable, and long-lasting dental restoration! The fact is, with proper oral hygiene and routine dental care your new crown will serve your smile well for many years to come.
