CEREC – Same Day Restorations
A crown in 1 appointment?
With CEREC cad/cam technology, it is possible to have the final crown in 1 appointment. With this technology we can create computer models which then allows us to design and fabricate a high strength all porcelain restoration. This eliminates the need for gooey impression materials, temporaries and best of all no second visit and a finished crown all in 1 appointment!
At Scottsdale Dental Excellence you will enjoy the convenience and comfort of this revolutionary technological service that dramatically shrinks the amount of time it takes to fabricate a dental restoration. There is no need for 2 or 3 visits because the CEREC crown is actually milled right in our Scottsdale office where Dr. Clark has total control over the creation of your Crown, Inlay/Onlay, Bridge or Veneer.
With the CEREC Omnicam that is used to take a 3D video image of your teeth, no messy powders are needed as with the older equipment that other dentists are using. Once your tooth has been prepared, Dr. Clark creates a 3D scanned video image of your tooth which is displayed on the computer screen and expertly designs the restoration right next to you.
The information is sent to our CEREC milling machine where a natural tooth colored restoration is milled from a preformed block of high strength porcelain that will match the shade and shape of your natural teeth and fit with accuracy!
Once it’s done, all that’s left for Dr. Clark to do is bond the restoration in place. That’s all it takes. There’s no need for a second visit and no temporary to worry about. Instead, you can leave our Scottsdale dental office that same day with a fully complete, custom-made tooth colored restoration that restores the strength and functionality of the tooth and can improve the appearance of your smile.
