CEREC – Same Day Crowns and Onlays
You can now get crowns in just one visit!
We can build a custom-fit, long lasting, natural colored crown in less than an hour. No repeat visits, no unsightly temporary crowns…
Today’s technology is impacting cosmetic dentistry in many ways. One of these breakthrough innovations is called CEREC. It allows to restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings in one visit, saving you time and inconvenience.
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It uses CAD/CAM technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. The dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the dentist uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology to design the restoration. Then CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, the dentist bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole process takes only about one hour!
What does this mean for you?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. There is no need for temporary crowns or take impressions and send them to a lab. CEREC has over a decade of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.
