CEREC® Dental Crowns & Restorations in Archdale, NC
CEREC is an advanced dental system that allows our doctors to restore your smile in a single visit with a beautiful, porcelain dental crown or restoration.
This technology is changing the fields of restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Typically, patients’ only option is to have messy impressions taken and wear a temporary restoration while they wait weeks for their custom-made tooth replacement.
With CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, we can create a high quality, natural-looking tooth in just one visit.
This video shows you how a crown, custom-made by CAD/CAM 3-D technology, restores a damaged tooth.
The Advantage of Using CEREC
The CEREC 3D software is the world’s only chair side dental CAD/CAM restorative system available. Its innovative design allows us to deliver a rejuvenated smile in less than one hour.
The process is simple, safe, and comfortable. It also restores your tooth back to its natural appearance, function, and health. There’s no need to wait weeks for your permanent crown or restoration any longer. With CEREC, you can enjoy all these benefits from the moment you leave our office.
How CEREC Restorations Are Made
After your consultation with one of our experienced doctors, we can begin your CEREC treatment at your next appointment. See how this easy procedure will go:
- First, we will take a 3D scan using an intraoral camera that simply glides over your teeth and provides our doctors with a digital image of your smile.
- Next, we’ll custom design your new tooth with ultimate precision and efficiency right on the screen of the CEREC system, allowing us to show you the predicted results.
- Once we match the restoration with the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, the CEREC technology will mill a new, ceramic model of your tooth.
- After your new crown or restoration is fabricated, we’ll ensure you’re happy with its appearance before we bond it permanently to your tooth root.
Caring for Your Stunning CEREC Restoration
Once your treatment is complete, it’s important to keep up with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits at our Archdale office to ensure your CEREC crown or restoration remains flawless for years to come.
In the case that your replacement tooth breaks or becomes loose, the best thing to do is keep any pieces that have fallen off and give us a call right away. It’s an easy fix with our CEREC system, and we can have your smile restored within minutes.
