Auden Park Family Dentistry is now offering CEREC technology to our patients to complete dental restorations like crowns or bridges. In most cases, we can fit, design, and create your custom restoration in our office in just one day.
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction.
It is a specialized machine that allows our dentists to design and build ceramic dental restorations like crowns & bridges in office.
The CEREC technology allows us to build your custom restoration in one visit, without the need for temporary fillings or crowns.
A 3D scan is taken of your mouth (no messy or unpleasant physical impressions are needed). The image is sent to a computer where, aided by the CEREC technology, your dentist designs your new restoration.
That custom design is then sent to the CEREC machine, where it is milled from ceramic material custom shaded by your dentist to match your natural teeth using high-tech diamond-coated instruments.
Once the restoration or tooth is completed, it can be polished and cemented in place. In general, the custom restoration can be built in a couple hours. While this may seem like a long appointment, you aren’t confined to the dentist’s chair the whole time.
The one-day method is available in most situations. Speak to your dental provider to find out more.
