Cerec Crowns & Basic Restorations
With CEREC technology we now have the ability to restore teeth with tooth colored restorations, in a single visit.
Comfort– Fast digital impressions are more comfortable for our patients than conventional impressions.
Superior precision– Digital impressions are immune to dimensional changes, which make our crowns look and feel more natural
Natural color– We support a wide range of colors for the perfect match
Fast– It is no longer necessary to wait one to two weeks for a porcelain crown to return from the lab. This means no longer having to wear and remove a temporary crown or scheduling a second visit to cement the permanent crown.
Basic Restorations or “Fillings”
To treat a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed. Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse. Teeth can be filled with gold; porcelain; silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper); or tooth-colored materials called composite resin fillings. The location and extent of the decay, cost of filling material, insurance coverage, and your dentist’s recommendation assist in determining the type of filling that will be placed.
