Many people fear their semi-yearly trips to the dentist. The prospect of a cavity and the dreaded reality of a filling weigh heavily on many minds. Add in the possible need for a crown or veneer to repair damaged teeth, and dental visit quickly goes to the bottom of the To Do list.
Thankfully, innovations in dentistry have made tooth restoration easier, more convenient, more accurate and overall less worrisome for patients. Our office has recently installed CEREC® equipment, which provides for on-site creation of natural-looking ceramic fillings - in a single visit. We use a digital camera to take an optical impression of the damaged tooth, design the appropriate restoration using CAD software and mill tooth-colored ceramic on-site in about 10 minutes. There's no need for a temporary and return visit. From tooth preparation to placement and bonding, a patient can have his or her smile restored in less than 2 hours.
CEREC is a shining example of recent advances in the dental profession and we at St. Charles Dental are proud to be among the first in the area to offer patients this new approach to tooth restoration.
