A big advantage we have over many other dental practices is our CEREC® technology, which provides time-saving convenience for patients. From simple fillings, to veneers, to full porcelain crowns, CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration in just one dental visit! For example, instead of taking up two days out of your busy schedule to fit and place a dental crown, we can measure, create and place a natural-looking porcelain crown in one easy appointment.
1. We examine the tooth and determine the treatment plan.
2. Any decayed or weakened tooth tissue is removed, and a digital picture of your tooth is taken.
3. Our CEREC software takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3D virtual model on the computer screen. We then create your restoration from this image, and immediately mill your crown from a ceramic block that matches your tooth shade, right in-house.
4. About 15 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place. We will check the restoration in your mouth to ensure proper fit and bite, then polish and bond the restoration to the prepared tooth. In just one appointment, your tooth is restored – with no return trip necessary!
