You pat yourself on the back for getting up early to get on the treadmill for twenty minutes. You remember to get online and schedule the bulky trash pickup, and you have your to-do list for the day completed and ready to execute. There’s only one problem: You can’t put off going to the dentist to get your broken tooth fixed any longer, but you envision it taking more time than your busy schedule will allow. Fortunately, your dentist in 10021 can remedy that for you with our one-visit dentistry. With CEREC — Chairside Economical Restoration Esthetic Ceramics, we can do a dental crown or any number of cosmetic restorations in just one visit.
How Can CEREC Help Me?
If you are in need of a dental bridge, crown, inlay or onlay, you may be an excellent candidate for this type of procedure. Cracked teeth, old, failing restorations and large area damage to your teeth can all be repaired with CEREC technology in about an hour.
What is CEREC Technology?
CEREC utilizes 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to virtually design a crown, bridge, inlay or onlay. A 3D image of your teeth and mouth is created, and this is used to design and fabricate your new restoration. Gone are the days of taking those uncomfortable impressions of your teeth! After the computer-generated model is complete, a milling unit then carves the actual restoration out of a ceramic block. All of this happens while you are sitting in the chair and relaxing.
Benefits to CEREC
Having same-day restorations is obviously a timer-saver, but there are many other reasons this technology has become a huge benefit to both patients and doctor.
With a one-visit restoration, there is no need for a temporary replacement, so the risk of damaging the teeth is reduced.
The technology provides a more accurate fit, but if there is any problem with your crown placement, an adjustment can be made while you are still in the office.
CEREC eliminates the need for traditional impressions, which can be uncomfortable.
Restorations are reliable, biocompatible and metal-free. They also look outstanding, and last a longer time.
Fewer visits can mean lower cost.
The Future is Here
As modern technology continues to advance, we are happy to be able to provide faster, safer and biocompatible solutions for your dental restorations. Utilizing CEREC in Upper East Side NY allows us to provide the quality, comfort and positive outcome for many of your dental needs, and that is a win-win for our New York Family Dental Arts practice and you.
