One-Visit CEREC Crowns for Improved Protection of Damaged Teeth

When teeth are damaged it can take a toll on the appearance and functionality of your smile.  With help from your dentist in [Location], you can restore damaged teeth in just one, easy dental visit with CEREC.  Utilizing cutting edge computer mapping, CEREC is able to make a complex 3D map of the desired tooth, or teeth, that need protection with a dental crown.  
CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, and is a recent innovation that many cosmetic dentists are using to provide natural looking crowns faster than traditional crown procedures.  This computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAD-CAM, is used for the creation of your crown to fit your tooth perfectly. 
One of the main benefits of CEREC is that dental crowns can be created in a single visit, which saves time for you and your [Location] dentist.  Potential discomfort is also eliminated because there is no need for a temporary crown between procedures, which allows for a more comfortable experience.  CEREC crowns also do not contain metal, which allows them to be both esthetically pleasing and natural looking.  Other benefits of CEREC include:
  • Hi-tech accuracy
  • Less tooth structure is lost
  • Natural, tooth-colored restoration
  • Less chance for complications with preservation of healthy tissue
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Precise for long-lasting results
With the CEREC system, your cosmetic dentist in [Location] can create beautiful life-like porcelain restorations for your teeth.

This is the time of the year when you are close to losing any leftover dental insurance benefits you might have.  Dental insurance really is not like regular medical insurance in that you get a set amount each year that is what your employer has contracted to offer to you.  So if you do not use the benefit the insurance company keeps those funds.  So don't waste the benefits you paid for by letting them lapse.  The other nice thing about this time of the year is that your benefits will be starting over at the beginning of the year, so with proper planning we can space your treatment over this year and next year is many cases and allow you to have the full use of both benefit years. So give us a call soon to schedule an appointment.  We always get patients waiting until the last couple days of the year who want to use their benefits and we run out of time.  Call us at 419-756-0188
