Natural-Looking Crowns Made While You Wait
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 applies the permanent crown. But 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. Dr. Simpson 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!
CEREC Allows Us to Repair a Damaged Tooth in About an Hour
We no longer need to take putty-based 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 use a digital scanner to take an impression of the tooth. The picture is then displayed on a computer screen, enabling us to design the restoration. Then CEREC takes over and automatically creates the crown, inlay, or onlay. 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?
