Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Utilizing CAD/CAM technology, Cerec restoration can provide you with beautifully natural tooth-colored restorations in one visit to the dentist! You will not need any traditional impressions or temporaries whatsoever!
At your appointment, the tooth that is receiving a Cerec crown will be numbed so you will be comfortable through out the procedure. The dentist will then shape the tooth and remove any decay that is present. When the tooth is the right shape to hold a crown, Dr. Curtis or Dr. Marchuk will then take photos of the tooth and surrounding teeth with their CAD/CAM camera and computer. They will then personally design your new crown chairside as you watch. When they are satisfied with the design, they send the computer image to our milling machine that is located in our office’s lab. After 10-15 minutes your new tooth colored crown is ready to be cemented!
You will no longer need to come in for two visits or will have to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown in most cases.
