One-Visit CEREC Crowns for Improved Protection of Damaged Teeth

 
When teeth are damaged it can take a toll on the appearance and functionality of your smile.  With help from your dentist in [Location], you can restore damaged teeth in just one, easy dental visit with CEREC.  Utilizing cutting edge computer mapping, CEREC is able to make a complex 3D map of the desired tooth, or teeth, that need protection with a dental crown.  
 
CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, and is a recent innovation that many cosmetic dentists are using to provide natural looking crowns faster than traditional crown procedures.  This computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAD-CAM, is used for the creation of your crown to fit your tooth perfectly. 
 
One of the main benefits of CEREC is that dental crowns can be created in a single visit, which saves time for you and your [Location] dentist.  Potential discomfort is also eliminated because there is no need for a temporary crown between procedures, which allows for a more comfortable experience.  CEREC crowns also do not contain metal, which allows them to be both esthetically pleasing and natural looking.  Other benefits of CEREC include:
  • Hi-tech accuracy
  • Less tooth structure is lost
  • Natural, tooth-colored restoration
  • Less chance for complications with preservation of healthy tissue
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Precise for long-lasting results
 
With the CEREC system, your cosmetic dentist in [Location] can create beautiful life-like porcelain restorations for your teeth.
