How Can I Save Time in Restoring My Smile With CEREC Crowns?
- Posted on: Feb 14 2020
Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano of Pittsford, NY is a dedicated professional who reinvests into his practice. This allows him to provide the best, most advanced solutions for patients who are seeking better oral health and wellness with a quality dental professional. With today’s technology, many processes that once took extended time to complete can now be done faster and more efficiently than ever before. One of these technological advances is that of CEREC.
What is CEREC and what can it accomplish?
CEREC is a special computerized device that creates same-day dental restorations such as veneers, crowns, and bridges. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This device is used by the team at DeStefano Dentistry to create porcelain restorations for patients while they wait. CEREC uses 3D dental impressions and CAD/CAM software to mill a restoration out of a block of porcelain while patients relax in the dental chair.
How does this improve smiles?
Traditional dental restorations often required messy molds that are sent to a dental laboratory, sometimes states away, to complete the final restoration. This required patients to come in for impressions, deal with a temporary restoration, and return for a second appointment a week or two later to remove the temporary and place the final restoration. Now, patients can have the entire process completed during a single appointment at our practice, saving time and energy!
What if I need multiple restorations?
Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano can complete multiple porcelain restorations during one visit using CEREC technology. Each tooth is properly prepared, and digitized impressions are sent to the software to complete the restoration required. CEREC can create:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Inlays and onlays
By offering same-day repairs using CEREC, everyone is pleased with the speed of restoration achieved using these strong, durable, and natural-looking restorations in the smile.
