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. This restoration can be completed during a single visit to our office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth 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 the doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and she will answer any questions you may have. Dr. Cartwright or Dr. Petersen will use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth.
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 to using CEREC over traditional crown technology.
Time: CEREC crowns are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from your job and family.
Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating 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 they are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
