We are often asked if we can do full or partial tooth restorations.
Not only can we do them, we use the latest technology! Introducing CEREC®—Ceramic restorations as natural as living teeth.
The CEREC system can be used for partial and full crowns, veneers, and in all single-tooth restorations. And yes, in most instances we can replace those unsightly metal fillings with CEREC ceramic—with the same characteristics of healthy dental enamel.
Yes, you can have a 100% metal-free restoration that’s as beautiful and natural looking as your original tooth.
We’re proud to make available the CEREC, a state-of-the-art, computer-controlled system that creates a tooth replacement from a single block of white, biocompatible, plaque-resistant ceramic. The process (and its effect on your smile) must be seen to be believed!
Not only is the restoration far more natural than old-fashioned metal fillings, the procedure can be performed in a single session—usually in about an hour. That’s because with CEREC there’s no need for us to make an impression and send it to the lab.
Instead, we use a special camera to take a picture of the tooth (actually, a pin-sharp optical impression). Computer technology then helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You watch the image of your new tooth take shape on a color video monitor at chairside!
Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration, also while you watch—milling it out of a solid block of ceramic material. Finally, we bond the new restoration to your tooth using the latest techniques in adhesive dentistry.
