People living in the fast lane can’t afford to spend long hours sitting in the dental chair. They want immediate treatment for their damaged teeth. Innovative technology called Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC) is an answer to their prayers. The CEREC system consists of a digital infrared camera that takes optical impressions of a patient’s teeth, a CAD (computer-aided design) machine that designs the restoration, and a CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) unit that mills the crown. Working together, these machines produce crowns in just minutes, which are then attached by the dentist on the same visit.
Your Lincroft dentists use this state-of-the art equipment to repair your chipped, fractured, or broken teeth. There’s no need for you to wait for days or weeks to get your crowns because treatment can be completed in just a single visit.
How’s that possible? After preparing your teeth, your dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth, design your crown using hi-resolution images, send it to the CEREC milling unit, and wait for your crowns to be fabricated. Once it’s ready, it will be placed and cemented to your teeth.
The procedure avoids the use of traditional impressions that are messy and distasteful. It also eliminates the use of temporary restorations. You don’t need to worry about sensitivity and discomfort that are often associated with provisional crowns.
Ceramic crowns are safe and free from mercury and other toxic materials. You’re assured that no harmful metals can affect your health.
Your “caps” are milled from a single block of high-quality ceramic that fits comfortably in your teeth. It looks natural and matches the color of your smile.
