ONE VISIT CROWNS, BRIDGES, & VENEERS
Do you have a dental crown, bridge or veneer? If so, you probably know that treatments related to these porcelain restorations can be lengthy and costly. Before dental technology advanced, patients would have to go to multiple appointments simply to get a crown. The process of creating a custom fit crown, bridge or veneer was very time consuming. This can be very frustrating for you as a patient.
Fortunately, you can now get these dental restorations in as little as one dental appointment. We use state-of-the-art CEREC (Ceramic Restoration) CAD CAM technology to digitally produce custom fit crowns, bridges and veneers. Your unique ceramic restoration devices are designed promptly in our offices using this advanced technology.
While CEREC dentistry is a recent industry standard, it was developed over 30 years ago in 1980. By 1985, the technology was successfully used to provide patients with ceramic restorations. Over time, this technology has advanced to its full potential, and we use the latest products and methods to provide you with what you need. Since 2013, approximately 6.9 million ceramic restorations have been produced per year using CEREC technology.
Thanks to this advanced technology, we can drastically reduce the time you spend in the dentist’s chair. This eliminates the need for temporary crowns that can be uncomfortable to wear. It also eliminates the need for multiple appointments and inconvenient waiting times. In most cases, we can give you your custom dental crown in one to two hours.
With the help of CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Bradford B. Liles can quickly and effectively design and produce completely unique ceramic restorations. Instead of waiting for lab work and sitting through multiple appointments, our office can design your custom restorations during your appointment. This chair-side process makes the entire process so much more convenient for you. In most cases, it only takes one appointment for us to carry out each necessary step.
We take digital impressions and use computer-based technology to construct your restorations. We then use these images in combination with CEREC software to come up with a virtual model. We use this custom model to begin digitally constructing your tooth restoration. This precision design is then constructed from ceramic that matches the color of your natural teeth.
In many cases, your crowns, veneers or bridges can be created in 6 to 15 minutes. After this process is complete, we may further enhance and customize your porcelain restoration to make sure it’s shine and finish blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
If you are in need of crowns, bridges or veneers, please contact Dr. Liles to set up an appointment using the phone number or form to your right. We can provide you with detailed information about CEREC dentistry and how it may benefit you.
