Cerec Crowns

What is CEREC?

CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful – all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process

During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will use a diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.

Extractions

Tooth extractions are when we physically take out a tooth surgically. This procedure might be needed if you have a rotten tooth, or gum disease.

Dentures

We are able to have you fitted for, and have made, dentures. Dentures are great for making your smile look straight and perfect without having to go through any surgery or stressful procedure.

Night Guards

Most people who grind their teeth chronically do so at night, unconsciously. While occassional teeth grinding is usually not a reason for concern, anyone who experiences habitual teeth grinding should consider seeking treatment. Habitual teeth grinding exerts excessive force on the teeth and jaw joints. This causes wear and tear on the tooth enamel, as well as muscles and joints in the jaw. Bruxism can lead to a variety of serious problems. These include broken and damaged teeth, headaches, neck and jaw pain. Stress, anxiety, and other problems can cause or exacerbate teeth grinding.
 
Why Choose CEREC?

There are many advantages of CEREC over traditional crown technology.

Time: CEREC crowns are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from your job and family.

Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, which eliminates significant potential discomfort.

Aesthetics: The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function and closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.

Strength: Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!

Fillings: CEREC material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since they are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
