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 a doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, while keeping them 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 Dr. Howard will discuss the details of the procedure and he will answer any questions you may have. We will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of it.
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, which saves you considerable time away from your job and family.
Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, so this eliminates 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 the fillings are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
