One Visit Crowns
Using CEREC all ceramic dental restorations you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! This means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
Using the latest CADCAM (computer aided design and manufacturing) technology an optical image is taken of the prepared tooth and a three dimensional virtual restoration is designed and sent to a milling machine here in our office. With fifteen minutes a restoration is ready to replace the missing tooth structure.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthetic, your tooth 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 pried 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.
A CEREC tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it is also healthy. With CEREC we 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 creating a comfortable restoration. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so that we can save as much healthy tooth structure as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
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 us about single visit CEREC restorative care!
