CEREC – One Visit Dentistry
Are you too busy for two dental visits? We are pleased to offer our patients CEREC restoration services; a state-of-the-art method of creating precisely designed, color matched, and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our office.
From simple fillings to full crowns, CEREC delivers the results you need in a single appointment.
Digital 3D Technology
With the CEREC digital 3D camera, Dr. Frank creates an optical impression of the prepared tooth. This digital image replaces the physical impression materials required in traditional procedures.
Next, computer aided design (CAD) software allows Dr. Frank to custom design every precise detail of your restoration with the accuracy you’ve come to expect from us.
While you wait, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration. About 15 minutes later, your all-ceramic, color matched restoration is ready for placement.
The new restoration is then fitted, polished, and bonded for performance. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function, and beauty, and you can get back to your busy life.
We are proud to be one of the few offices to offer these benefits to our patients, thanks to advancements in new and exciting CAD/CAM technologies.
