Preventative care is the key to a healthy smile. Regular checkups allow us to treat issues before they become a problem. Sometimes, cosmetic dentistry is the best course of action in these cases. But whether it's elective or for treatment, we'll make sure your smile is healthy and beautiful!
Why are we so excited to offer Dentistry Powered by CEREC in our office? Because it makes custom crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers easier than ever for you. In just one visit using this advanced technology, we can prepare your tooth, then make the dental restoration right in our office in as little as one hour. No messy impressions, no temporary crowns, and no long wait for your permanent restoration.
With this complete, in-office system, we can create long-lasting ceramic crowns and more—in a single visit, in as little as one hour. That means a healthier smile for you in less time.
1. We capture an image of your tooth with a digital scanner.
2. A 3D model of your teeth and the new restoration are created on the computer.
3. The restoration is then fabricated from a ceramic block on our milling machine, right in our office.
4. The dentist places the custom-fit restoration a short time later, during the same visit.
Eliminates the unpleasant impression process
The digital scanner captures a full-mouth image in seconds—no biting down on impression material for several minutes, no numbness, and no jaw ache.
No follow-up appointment necessary
We create and place your permanent dental restoration in one visit, letting you get on with life—eliminating the need for an uncomfortable, inconvenient temporary crown.
A long-term solution
Proven in dental practices millions of times over to offer lasting results, it’s trusted technology developed by Dentsply Sirona, the world leader in dental solutions.
Looks and acts like a real tooth
Unlike many conventional crowns that use a metal base (which limits translucency) and can have a dark edge, a CEREC crown looks and feels like your natural tooth. And it most closely matches the hardness of a real tooth, helping prevent wear and tear.
Preserves more of your natural tooth
Only decayed or damaged tooth surface is removed, preserving as much of the healthy tooth as possible.
Ceramic Inlays and Onlays
Unlike ordinary traditional materials, ceramic fillings not only offer you higher quality, but a natural tooth-like color—which makes them popular with our patients.
If you have chipped or discolored front teeth, ceramic veneers are a great, natural-looking solution—and using this system, they’re also a more convenient one for you.
To fix a damaged or decayed tooth, they offer a lasting repair that virtually eliminates the gum irritation and impaired taste that people often experience with conventional metal crowns.
