Powerful computer-aided design and manufacturing technology, called CAD/CAM or CEREC, allows us to custom fabricate tooth-colored restorations, crowns,
As the first step in the CEREC technique, we prepare and shape the tooth for the restoration. We then take a digital image using a state of the art HD Imaging Wand that records the tooth’s exact dimensions directly into the CEREC computer.
After we carefully design the restoration, we select an appropriate material of the proper shade for your specific tooth. We place this material into the milling machine, which, in just a few minutes, shapes it into a custom-fitted restoration.
We then try in the new restoration, add any necessary coloring, bond or cement it in place and polish it to a beautiful luster. Last, we’ll check your bite and make any final adjustments.
The biggest advantage of same-day crowns and CEREC is that there is no need to wear a temporary.
Also using CEREC technology is healthier for you because it provides extremely accurate restorations, made with durable materials that work with advanced dental adhesives.
This means that only a minimal amount of tooth preparation is required, leaving more of the healthy tooth structure intact. And because your new restorations are made out of tooth-colored materials, they are naturally beautiful. With CEREC technology, you can have a strong and beautiful restoration in just one appointment.
