Restore Your Smile, Keep Your Schedule

No Temporaries.
No Messy Impressions.
One Easy Appointment.

CEREC technology allows us to create strong, customized, tooth-colored ceramic restorations right here in the office, usually within a single appointment. No temporary or second visit is required and the aesthetics are beautiful.

In the course of one visit, we can diagnose and prepare your damaged tooth, create an optical impression of the tooth, and use CEREC to design and mill a precision restoration, which is then permanently bonded to your tooth. No mess, no discomfort, no wait.

Get the smile you want and get back to your life. We know you've got more important things to do.

    How CEREC Works
  • DIGITAL IMPRESSION
    After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, we will prepare your tooth for restoration, similarly to traditional treatment methods. Your prepared tooth will be coated with a safe, tasteless powder. CEREC then uses a state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression. This digital image replaces the physical impression required in traditional procedures. No more long waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.
         
    COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (CAD)
    State-of-the-art CAD software allows us to design every precise detail of your restoration with the precision you've come to expect from us. The software allows us to customize the shape of the restoration to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.
         
    MILL AND PLACE
    Exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration while you wait. About 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, color-matched restoration is ready for placement. Your new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.

     

FILLINGS (Inlays and Onlays)
CEREC fillings (inlays and onlays) are superior to amalgam or composite fillings because of their superior aesthetics and strength. With enamel-like material, they look and feel like your real teeth, and are longer lasting.

Compared to composite onlays, CEREC onlays help restore your tooth to its original strength and have superior aesthetics to PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crowns. And because they are metal free, CEREC onlays have a more natural look and feel, and can help preserve healthy, natural tooth structure. And as with any CEREC restoration, your onlay can be taken care of in one visit. You can avoid the impression materials, temporary and return appointment associated with lab-created onlays.

    

CROWNS
With its enamel-like material, CEREC crowns looks and feel like your real teeth. Unlike PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crowns, CEREC is metal free. Although the PFM can mimic natural tooth appearance, the metal limits translucency and can sometimes show through as a dark line, especially at the gum line. And the CEREC crown can help preserve healthy, natural tooth structure.

As with any CEREC restoration, your crown can be taken care of in one visit, so you can avoid the impression materials, temporary crown, and return appointment associated with lab-generated restorations.

    

VENEERS
Whether caused by trauma or the natural shape and alignment of your teeth, smile imperfections can make you self-conscious and less likely to smile with your greatest smile. Veneers might be the right solution. Veneers are wafer-thin, custom made laminates of tooth-colored porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth. These laminates are then bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color and/or shape, resulting in an improved appearance.

Unlike composite veneers, CEREC uses enamel-like material that looks and feels more like your real teeth. And CEREC veneers are a stronger, long-lasting, permanent solution. As with any CEREC restoration, your veneer can be taken care of in one visit so you can avoid the impression material, temporary and return appointment usually associated with traditional veneers.
