We are your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. Why go to the dentist a second time if you don't have to?
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor's office. In some cases our CEREC technology can replace a missing tooth with a custom fabricated bridge in a single visit as well! It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process
During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC's proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth's appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will mill your restoration from a ceramic block using two robotic arms and diamond-embedded burs. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art dental-specific adhesives.
Why Choose CEREC?
There are many advantages of using CEREC over traditional crown technology.
Time: CEREC crowns and some bridges are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from your job and family.
Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating significant potential discomfort.
Aesthetics: The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function, and closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure.
Strength: Milled ceramic is stronger than traditional methods of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
Fillings: CEREC technology and materials can also be used for fillings. The result is a more durable and longer lasting restoration compared to standard composite fillings.
