CEREC same day restorations is the most advanced and efficient way to restore teeth and it’s all completed in a single visit!
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction. This is a computerized 3D imaging and camera assisted design center that allows Dr. O’Donnell to take digital impressions of a patient’s teeth via the use of a scanner. This scanner captures images of the teeth and gums, eliminating the need for messy impressions. You read that right…NO GOOEY MESS! These images are then used with an in-office milling unit for same-day restorations, eliminating the lab step in manufacturing a crown.
Your restoration is attached with exceptional precision for natural looking results. CEREC is setting new standards in dentistry and constantly evolving to adapt to the demands of dentists and patients.
There are many advantages to using CEREC technology:
- Increased comfort – You spend less time in the dental chair and less time away from your daily activities
- Beautiful, naturel looking materials – Color matched precision provides a seamless look and blends in with your natural teeth
- Long term strength and stability – Ceramics used in the restoration are inherently strong and resistant to wear.
Dr. O’Donnell and his team are highly trained in using CEREC technology and it allows them to create full porcelain crowns same day in about an hour and a half. Most dentists, by comparison, have to wait for a separate lab to construct your crown (which they might do imprecisely) and ship it to your dentist (which can take weeks). We are excited to show you the difference CEREC can make! Are you ready to get that beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of? Call us today!
