Using our in-office CEREC laboratory, we can create crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays in only one visit.
Crowns can take up to three visits and the use of a temporary to fully restore your tooth. With CEREC technology this can be done in a single visit while you are in the chair! CEREC’s precision 3D technology allows us to create a customized crown that fits your teeth perfectly and is completely biocompatible with your own tooth structure.
Using our in-office CEREC laboratory, we can create crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays in only one visit. We take a 3-dimensional photo of your tooth and custom-craft a perfectly molded restoration, using computer-assisted design. Minutes later we bond your final restorations in place.
CEREC restorations are milled from a single block of high-quality ceramic, a substance that is particularly compatible with the body and that has the same characteristics as normal, healthy dental enamel.
In the past, tooth-colored filling material were not durable enough to withstand the tremendous biting forces required by back teeth, which limited cosmetic dentistry to front teeth restorations. The CEREC system allows us to create beautiful tooth-colored restorations both for front and back teeth that match the color and appearance of the rest of your teeth. It creates the same translucence, color and brilliance as that of your natural healthy teeth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of restoration that is used to repair a broken-down tooth or may replace an existing large filling. Inlays are designed for tooth damage affecting the indented portion of the top of the tooth and onlays are for more extensive damage. They are used when the damage is not severe enough to require a crown. Like crowns, typically these can take up to three appointments and the use of a temporary. With the CEREC technology, we can fabricate them while you wait and leave you with the finished restoration.
