WHAT IS CEREC TECHNOLOGY?
In the past, receiving dental restorations often required at least two visits because physical impressions had to be made and sent to a laboratory for the crown, denture, or bridge to be made. However, with developments being made in the dental industry each day, we now have much more convenient options at our disposal. Board-certified dentist Dr. Brian Call is pleased to offer patients custom-made restorations with CEREC technology, which can create crowns and other pieces the very same day of your appointment. CEREC utilizes CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) technology to create unique restorations here at our office.
Oakridge Dental uses this advanced system to produce fully customized bridges, crowns, inlays, and onlays, depending on your needs. The CEREC same-day restoration system may also be used to create veneers. This revolutionary technology allows us to bypass the hassle and time of physical dental impressions and temporary covers. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Call at his office in Farmington, UT to learn more about the CEREC system.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM CEREC TECHNOLOGY?
CEREC same-day restorations at Oakridge Dental help you complete your cosmetic or restorative dental treatment in one visit. You may receive a custom bridge, crown, inlay, onlay, or veneers with the CEREC system. This highly advanced technology conveniently allows you to avoid having to make numerous appointments for one single restoration. Patients who receive CEREC restorations also do not have to deal with messy physical impressions or temporary crowns and bridges. This technology can also be extremely helpful if you have a dental emergency, such as a cracked tooth or crown.
HOW DOES CEREC TECHNOLOGY WORK?
Your CEREC procedure will begin with a consultation, during which Dr. Call will develop your unique treatment plan. The process will require a digital scan of your mouth, which will be used to help Dr. Call create your customized restoration. From there, your crown, veneer, or bridge will be sent to the CEREC system to be produced. The amount of time needed to make your restoration will depend on its size. Once the piece is created, Dr. Call will polish it before placement. He will then fix the restoration so it fits comfortably in your mouth and blends with your natural teeth.
Once your CEREC restoration has been created and placed, it is essential for you to keep up with a great home dental hygiene regimen to care for it. You should also schedule annual dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at Oakridge Dental in Farmington, UT. At every appointment, Dr. Call will check your restoration and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to help keep your teeth healthy for as long as possible. If cared for properly, ceramic restorations can last for several years.
