CEREC – We are an amalgam-free office. We do not place metal fillings. Our materials are tooth-colored composite resins or bonded ceramics. Our bonded ceramics are made utilizing cutting-edge technology called CEREC® which allows us to make crowns, onlays and inlays in a single visit without the need to take “gooey” impressions or wear a temporary. Our patients marvel over how comfortable these ceramics are. We use a laser scanner to image the tooth in your mouth, design the crown on the computer and then wirelessly transmit that design to an in-the-office milling machine that will produce a precise, custom-fitted restoration. This technology is adored by our patients and allows us to save as much of the healthy tooth as possible!
