CEREC allows our patients convenience and efficiency with all ceramic crown procedures. By utilizing digital and CAD/CAM technology, CEREC allows our doctors to digitally photograph, design and create beautiful ceramic crowns in office. This allows for single visit crown procedures making the need to make 2 appointments for every crown a thing of the past. If convenience and efficient all ceramic restorations are treatments you may need, CEREC restorations may be the solution for you- Contact us for an appointment today!
Some additional benefits of using CEREC include:
Ceramic inlay/onlay restorations are durable, esthetic ceramic restorations which are more conservative than full coverage crowns. These are generally completed when healthy tooth structure remains so the tooth does not need to be prepared for a crown, but needs more strength than a filling. In addition to conserving healthy tooth, these restorations can strengthen the tooth and add stability by being adhesively bonded into a tooth like a “puzzle piece”
Composite restorations or tooth colored fillings are a conservative treatment option to help restore or reshape misaligned, fractured, decayed or worn teeth. Composite restorations involve the direct application of composite resin and are able to be used on front or back teeth. It is generally best suited for smaller, more minor restorative procedures while helping to create a more attractive smile. Tooth colored fillings are also a more conservative and modern alternative to traditional mercury amalgam metal fillings. The bonding process can usually be completed in one visit and generally involves minor tooth preparation, application of the bonding and expert shaping to reconstruct the proper tooth shape, contour and color. Final curing and polishing will complete the process of bringing your smile back to life!
