How CEREC treatment works
Same-day restorations utilizing the CEREC system involves a camera, CAD/CAM technology, a computer, and an in-office machine in which crowns are milled, or carved. All of this technology is essentially part of one amazing instrument.
To repair a tooth with CEREC, Dr. Smida first removes all damaged tooth material. Using this conservative, metal-free technique, reduction of the tooth is minimized only to the area of damage. A special camera is used to obtain an accurate image of the tooth. This image is transferred as an optical impression that can be viewed on a computer screen. Using this display, computer aided design takes place. This leads to the highest degree of accuracy in the final crown. Following computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing completes the fabrication of a lifelike restoration. In about an hour, this CAD/CAM technology produces a crown that will look and feel natural.

- Debby V.
Gosh, I have been going to DR Smida when she just opened her practice. She's the Best! God Blessed me with a wonderful smile, and with the help of Dr Smida, I have kept that smile at it's fineness. I have several veneers, and I was going when The Dr just started making them. She was so funny because she's such a prefectionist, she'd work on veneer crown until it looked perfect. I've always liked the hygienist that work in the office. I continue to go when my time for cleaning is appointed. I couldn't be pleased more, they do an excellent job...I wish you could see my smile...:-D
