CEREC in Newtown, PA

Crowns in a Day in Newtown, PA

Thanks to advances in dental technology, dental prosthetics can be completed in a single visit using CAD/CAM technology known as CEREC. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

CEREC is a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched, and highly durable ceramic restorations right in the dental office. CEREC allows you to avoid messy impressions with gooey materials and helps you avoid wearing temporaries for weeks when often the temp comes out in between. It eliminates multiple dental appointments associated with cosmetic dentistry cases.

How CEREC Works

A CEREC restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Years ago, dentists could only use mercury amalgams, other metals, and gold to fix decayed and damaged teeth. With CEREC, the strong, tooth-colored ceramic material used for the restoration is bonded to your tooth, so your tooth preparation can be very conservative (keeping as much tooth structure as possible) while restoring strength and natural beauty.

During your dental visit for dental crowns, your tooth will be prepared similarly for your dental crown, but instead of a temporary crown being placed, the CEREC technology will allow a permanent crown to be completed and placed on the same visit! Crowns and bridges created with CEREC technology are just as durable as those created in a dental lab and eliminate the need to return for a second visit weeks later.

Get back to your busy life…here are some of the possibilities with CEREC:

  • Restoration: Crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers are available in just one sitting.
  • Implantology: Depending on the type of implant base, some implant restorations can be created in one session and the crown can be cemented onto the implant the same day.
  • Clear Aligner Therapy: Decreased waiting time for clear braces when using CEREC for the digital impressions

CEREC has made dental procedures easier, faster, and more comfortable. Dr. Bob was named a leading provider when he introduced CEREC to our Office and into the Newtown community in 2009. To know more about the CEREC technology in Newtown, get in touch with us.
