Gambrills, MD dentist is excited to provide same-day dental treatment with CEREC technology
Obtaining a dental crown or other porcelain restorations at dental offices has traditionally required extensive time and energy. The process typically takes a few weeks for patients to get the dental treatment they need. However, with the use of today’s advanced technologies, patients in the area of Gambrills, MD can benefit from the use of CEREC technology for restorations such as dental crowns or inlays at Bingham-Lester Dentistry.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a special CAD/CAM software and device that is used to create durable, natural-looking dental restorations for patients. The CEREC treatment process begins with the preparation of a tooth by shaping it so that the restoration will have a proper fit. Then, impressions are made using a unique digital handpiece that scans the tooth in seconds. These measurements are then used by the software to create a restoration from a block of porcelain—while you wait comfortably in the office rather than waiting for weeks at home! The restoration can be created and placed during the same appointment, saving you time, energy, and costs.
What restorations can be made with CEREC?
The most common dental restorations fabricated using CEREC technology include:
- Dental crowns
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental bridges
- Inlays and onlays
Are CEREC restorations are strong and durable as laboratory-made restorations?
Absolutely! Using CEREC to create dental restorations does not impact the overall quality of the repair. However, it saves on time for the patient and eliminates the need for further appointments. We have very high standards by which we create restorations for our patients and ensure high-quality repairs.
