Our patients benefit from the faster, more comfortable treatment with no impression tray, no temporary and only one anesthetic injection. We are proud to offer you the best modern treatment – with CEREC!
Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay. If a natural tooth-colored porcelain crown is chosen, our CEREC® CAD/CAM treatment gives patients a completed permanent crown in just one office visit.
Step 1 - Scan
After your consultation, our team use the camera to capture the area to be treated. Say goodbye to biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache. We now have a camera that can capture your full dentition in seconds and then transfer this to the computer.
Step 2 - Design
After your scan, our doctors will create a 3D model on the computer of the dental prothesis.
Step 3 - Build
The restoration created on the computer is subsequently milled from a ceramic block. Temporary prostheses are exactly what the name suggests: temporary. With CEREC the final prosthesis is built and restored at the same visit.
Step 4 - Restore
The finished ceramic restoration is inserted just a little while later. CEREC enables us to insert esthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single session.
