Palmyra Family, Cosmetic Dentistry & Braces offers our patients one visit restorations with an amazing system called CEREC.
CEREC is a wonderful technology that allows us to provide you with a new crown in only one visit! The CEREC is a computerized CAD/CAM machine that replaced the goop used to make traditional crowns. Also, there is no longer the inconvenience of temporary crowns coming loose or second appointments to return for the final crown.
In this economy, wouldn't you rather take only one day off work than two?
How does the Cerec system work?
First, your tooth is prepared in the traditional fashion. Then, instead of using goop to take a mold of your mouth, the CEREC steps in. A camera is used to take a picture of your teeth and bite and the CEREC machine converts these images into a virtual mold of your teeth. From this virtual mold, one of our Doctors then designs a crown that is custom fitted to your tooth. This provides a superior fit to a crown fabricated in the traditional way. After the crown is designed it is sent to a milling machine in our office which creates the crown out of a solid block of porcelain. After a few minutes your crown is ready to be cemented onto your tooth permanently, giving you a new white tooth in as little as a couple of hours.
If you have any questions about the Cerec system, please speak with one of our Palmyra Family, Cosmetic Dentistry & Braces team members today.
