Your time is precious, and, if you’re like most of us, it’s probably in pretty short supply. We understand that, but we also want you to receive the best dental treatments possible.
Modern dental technology is making it possible for us to get you in and out of the office faster, while still ensuring you get healthy and aesthetically pleasing results.
It wasn’t that long ago that really serious cosmetic and restorative procedures required an extensive treatment and probably multiple visits to the office. The patient would have to rely on temporary replacement crowns while the lab took the time to produce a permanent crown or veneer.
Now, with the new CAD/CAM technology we have in the office, we can construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations chairside in a single appointment.
Let’s take a closer look at how this technology speeds these cosmetic and restorative procedures, reduces the number of office visits, and provides superior fitting restorations.
You can get brand new, custom crowns in a single day with our CEREC machine. CEREC technology allows us to control every phase of the restoration process and – everything from the initial digital impressions to the virtual models of the teeth, and milling the ceramic that is safe for your mouth and looks completely natural.
To be a little more specific, this system uses 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to take some detailed impressions of your teeth. This level of precision lets us create better crowns and veneers that fit perfectly in your mouth. And, as a nice side note, it means we can create impressions without using any of the molding putty that was once so common.
The Importance of Precise Imaging
Our 3D imaging camera scans your entire mouth so we can replicate the exact contours of your teeth. This helps us ensure the crown will fit correctly on the first try and last for a very long time. The level of detail in these cameras can produce images with virtually no distortion.
