CEREC® Same Day Crowns
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. 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 apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will 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 use diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
Why Choose CEREC®?
There are many advantages of using CEREC® over traditional crown technology.
Time: CEREC® crowns 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 the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
Fillings: CEREC® material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since these fillings are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
