Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC® for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. CEREC® uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer single-day restorations for patients. This new technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers for patients so that there is no longer a wait between preparing the restoration and finally receiving the finished product. With CEREC®, the technology is used while you are sitting in the dental chair, which is both economical for you and your dentist. The restorations created are metal-free and tooth colored to restore your tooth to its natural beauty, strength and function. With CEREC®’s CAD-CAM technology, these ceramic restorations can all be done in one single visit to the dentist.
Dental cone beam CT (computed tomography) is a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where dental practitioners determine that regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the head and neck region in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise diagnosis. A small percentage of dental offices have this technology available to them.
Dental implants are fixed (or permanent) replacements for missing teeth. They provide a very strong foundation for natural looking teeth. Multiple dental implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth as they provide improved comfort and stability to prosthetic dentures. They look and function like your natural teeth. Our office uses the most accurate and least invasive methods to place dental implants. This includes the use of a custom made surgical guide. Using the surgical guide provides precision implant placement, allowing us to avoid the risk of damaging nerves or neighboring teeth.
