CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic), is a breakthrough computerized 3D technology that allows Dr. Young to create custom dental crowns and veneers right in our office. By using this advanced technology, Dr. Young can give you custom, perfectly matched and perfectly fitted dental crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays — all during a single appointment!
Thanks to advanced technology, Top Lewis Center Dentist Dr. Kevin Young can give his patients top-quality dental crowns, inlays and onlays and porcelain veneers in a single office visit. His in-house computer-driven laboratory ensures that his patients receive top-quality, durable restorations rapidly and painlessly. And unlike older restoration methods, CEREC restorations are so strong and durable that they can be used on all teeth, including back biting teeth and molars.
Regular dental crowns can take up to three visits, and require the dentist to use a temporary crown before fully restoring your tooth. With CEREC technology, Dr. Young can complete the entire process in a single visit, while you are in the chair at his dental office! CEREC's precision 3D technology allows us to create a customized dental crown that will match your teeth and fit your bite perfectly, without relying on an outside dental lab.
CEREC restorations are milled from a single block of high-quality Empress porcelain, a substance that is extremely durable and easily tolerated by your body. It is also a beautiful, translucent porcelain that mimics your natural tooth enamel in appearance and texture.
Many people are actually allergic to traditional metal or metal and ceramic dental crowns, and experience swollen, red and receding gums. By removing crowns containing metal and replacing them with CEREC crowns, gums recover completely.
CEREC restorations can be completed in just one visit. Whether you need a crown, an inlay or several veneers, the entire procedure can be completed in one visit.
No temporaries are necessary. Temporary dental crowns and inlays are often problematic. They may be uncomfortable, not fit properly and they may chip or crack, allowing bacteria to harm sensitive tissues.
You will have fewer injections, and less anesthetic. With just one visit, you won't have to experience injections, sedation or anesthetic more than once.
You'll have a faster recover time, too. Because CEREC Restordiately, your tooth and pulp are protected from further damage.
CEREC restorations look very natural. The CEREC ceramic blocks come in 17 shades, so color matching is easy and precise. Your new dental crown will look like one of your natural teeth.
