Very few people can claim that they have the perfect smile. If you have decay or imperfections, CEREC is just the thing for you. Not only are the results natural-looking and lasting, they are created and placed in a single office visit, which means you can enjoy a same-day smile.
The CEREC Procedure
If Dr. Marcus determines that you are a good candidate for CEREC restorations, you can expect the following procedure at your appointment:
- Preparation — Dr. Marcus will use an anesthetic to ensure that you’re comfortable as your teeth are prepared, which involves removing decay and weakened tooth tissue.
- Impression — An optical impression is taken of your prepared tooth or teeth; unlike traditional impressions that require keeping a goop-filled tray in your mouth for several minutes as it hardens, optical impressions are fast and simple.
- Creation — Our in-house acquisition and milling units allow us to create your CEREC reconstruction while you wait. Dr. Marcus will select a ceramic shade that perfectly matches the rest of your teeth. Once your ceramic reconstruction has been made, it is ready to be placed and polished.
- Placement — Dr. Marcus will bond your reconstruction directly to your tooth and then shape and polish the ceramic to ensure a natural fit and look.
In no time at all, you’ll have bright, beautiful, and functional teeth. Get ready to share your smile with the world.
