When we have a dental flaw, it becomes something that can cause issues you may not have thought of before. It can cause further dental issues, difficulty eating and drink or even speech impediments. This can begin to cause issues, not only with social situations but cause take time out of your schedule making various dental appointments to treat the issue. But what if you can fix your smile in a single appointment? Dr. James Yankowskas is proud to offer CEREC® to his patients.
CEREC®, is the world’s only system that allows our doctors to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience. In fact, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic dental restorations with fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule.
A tooth-colored restoration is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive, and plaque-resistant. We no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated.
During the procedure, the tooth that requires a CEREC® restoration is prepared and a 3D photograph is taken of the prepared tooth. From there, computer-aided design CAD software creates the restoration digitally, then sent to a milling machine where your restoration is cut. The milling process usually takes about 15 minutes per restoration. Once the restoration is finished being milled, it is fitted onto the prepared tooth and adjusted until the bite is accurate.
This procedure is great for dental crowns, veneers and the replacement of old fillings to give you the longest-lasting, best-looking restorations.
