A Beautiful Smile in a Single Visit!
The CEREC single-visit restoration is a revolutionary way to restore damaged or broken teeth in one visit, usually about 60 to 90 minutes. With CEREC there is no need for us to make an impression and send it to the lab. There is no temporary crown or tooth and no need to return for a second visit. You leave after one visit to our Pompano Beach dental office with a natural looking restoration made of tooth-colored ceramic material.
CEREC preserves your tooth: The combination of the actual process and new bonding techniques enable us to preserve more of your healthy material, creating a stronger, more permanent result.
CEREC saves you time: Because there’s no longer the need to create temporaries or take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab, the traditional second visit necessary has been eliminated. The whole process is completed in just one appointment. It also gives us the opportunity to help visitors to South Florida who need emergency care when they break a tooth or lose a crown.
No more silver fillings! CEREC uses a high-quality ceramic material that is natural looking and color matched to your teeth. We use computer imaging to design a precise fit and feel.
More accurate and healthier than traditional restorations: CEREC is made of materials compatible with the tissue in your mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.
How does CEREC WORK?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth by applying a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth’s surface. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression. Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. Our patients actually watch as we design their new restoration on the monitor beside their chair.
