Understanding Dental Crowns & Bridges
Our office has used crowns and bridges for years and years to help restore the health of damaged teeth—but we don’t use outdated technology to do so. Although these dental restorations are tried and true, we take a new approach to crafting your customized dental restorations.
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics and it refers specifically to the software and milling system that creates dental crowns and other restorations. Typically, dental crowns need to be created at an offsite dental lab before they can be fitted onto a patient’s tooth. By having the CEREC milling machine in-house, we can remove the need for traditional impression material, provide permanent restorations the very same day you need them, and save you money all at the same time! Once we’ve captured a digital impression of your damaged tooth, we can use that data to create a permanent restoration, then make adjustments and place the tooth the same day!
