We offer many different types of restorations to help you regain your ability to chew, reinforce your teeth and improve their appearance. Your dentist is knowledgeable about many techniques and materials.
Two appointments are needed for some restorations, such as all-ceramic crowns.
Medical and dental technologies have been constantly evolving since the mid-1980s, especially following the introduction of computer-assisted design and manufacturing. Today, dental offices can handle the entire dental restoration manufacturing process in-house.
With CEREC technology, we can make and install restorations in a single appointment!
There are 4 steps to the CEREC procedure, all carried out during the same appointment. First, we perform an optical scan of your mouth. Then, we produce a digital design of the restoration. Once the model is ready, we select a ceramic block and proceed with the manufacturing step. The restoration is made in a small milling chamber.
Finally, we install the restoration. Whether it’s a crown or inlay, we carefully adjust the restoration before we secure it using dental cement.
