Nobody really likes going to the dentist, but when it’s necessary, none of us like to spend more time and money than we have to.  For that reason we decided to make the investment in a CEREC system for the benefit of our patients.

The CEREC system allows us to fabricate a crown, in our office, for those teeth that have been compromised by decay, breakage, or large fillings, among other things.

Using technology perfected over the last 20 yrs, digital 3D pictures are taken of your tooth before and during the procedure which allow the fabrication of a crown using CAD-CAM software to design and mill the restoration from a solid block of porcelain- thus ensuring high levels of strength and aesthetics.

One of the best parts of all this is that only one visit to the office is required- it is designed, fabricated and bonded to your tooth all in the same trip.

Feel free to take advantage of our complementary consult visit to see if you could benefit from this great technology.


FYI… the porcelain & bonding technology we use here are 2 more of the beneficial spin-offs from the Space Shuttle program… remember all the trouble they had with ceramic tiles breaking and falling off?  Well, they spent a bundle coming up with a fix for the problem, and this is one of the places it ended up!
