Our Technology
 

CEREC

 

CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth.  CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC crown is that the turn around is just in a day or two, and no messy impressions to take. 

 

Procedure

 

The procedure for placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple. The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth. The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture. The tooth is then sprayed with a very fine powder. This allows the digital camera to take an acceptable image. Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. Then we send the images off to a lab were they will design and make the crown, deliver it to our office and then we cement it on the patient in just a short 20 min appointment.
