Petaluma dentist believes CEREC same day restorations benefits a patient’s whole body health
If you have ever had a traditional crown placed, you know it can take a lot of time. First, the tooth must be prepared. Putty impressions are taken. A temporary resin crown is placed. Finally, weeks later, you get the actual crown cemented into your mouth. Dr. Smida of Dental Care & Wellness of Sonoma County in Petaluma, CA strives to give patients solutions that work in harmony with their entire well-being, from emotional to physical. She offers CEREC same day restorations.
What is CEREC?
CEREC same day restorations use a camera, CAD/CAM technology, a computer, and an in-office milling machine to create a crown in just one visit. The camera obtains precise images of the tooth needing treatment. This information is transferred to the computer as an optical impression. CAD technology is used to design the crown.
Benefits of CEREC
- Time saving – CEREC eliminates the need for multiple dental visits to get a permanent crown. This minimizes your time off work, and frees you up for the things you want to do versus the things you need to do.
- No temporaries needed – There is no need to “baby” a temporary crown that may cause sensitivity in the mouth.
- High-quality ceramic used – No metal is used in the construction of your restoration and none is placed in your mouth. Ceramic is less bulky than the traditional porcelain and contains no irritants.
