You know the routine. You visit the dentist. You need a crown. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression, and places a temporary crown. You then wait two weeks to return to the dentist, and he places the permanent crown. And if the fit isn’t perfect, then it goes back to the lab and you wait again. And return to the dentist again.
But now, that’s all changed. Our doctors can reduce that two-week waiting period and the two or three office visits down to just a single visit with new technology! This new technology is called CEREC, a computer-aided design and milling device. CEREC allows us to create a permanent crown in just a few minutes. Now, there’s no more waiting for the lab and no return trips to the dentist. Patients love it!
We are one of the first offices in the area to employ the CEREC technology in our practice. The CEREC system allows us to repair a damaged tooth in about an hour. We no longer need to take impressions or create temporaries, and CEREC enables us to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings.
To make the restoration, we first paint a reflective powder over the prepared tooth. Using a special camera, we take an accurate picture of the tooth, and the picture is then displayed on a computer screen, enabling us to design the restoration. Then CEREC takes over and automatically creates the restoration. Finally, we bond the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth.
All this makes going to the dentist much easier and faster, and who really wants to spend more time in the dental chair?Call (336) 766-0511 today to find out if CEREC can work for your smile!
