CEREC – Ceramic Restoration for Crowns and Fillings
(Before and After)
With CEREC, we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth. The restoration can be performed in a single session, usually in about one hour. With CEREC, there is no need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab. The restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It is metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth. The result is a beautiful, natural-colored restoration that is much stronger than before.
Direct Composite Bonding
Bonding is a procedure done with a white filling material matched to the color of your tooth, which is bonded directly to the tooth surface and is chemically bonding into the microscopic holes in the tooth, creating a seal. They are cured with a light so that 100% strength is achieved before you even leave the dental chair. It can be used to fill spaces or correct discolored spotting in the tooth. It is accomplished in one appointment and when you leave you have the look you have always dreamed of.
Kenetic Cavity Preparation (KCP)
Kenetic cavity preparation is a high velocity of air, combined with abrasive particles that removes decay from the tooth structure. Many times an anesthetic is not required. This procedure can only be used on teeth that have never had a restorative procedure before and it cannot be used close to the gum line.
