CEREC All Porcelain Restorations in Ballston Spa, NY

March 31, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-476102561Life is busy. The last thing you need is a dental procedure that doesn’t just require one visit to the dentist, but two. With this in mind, Dr. Fred Dreher and his staff in Ballston Spa, NY, are pleased to offer CEREC All Porcelain Restorations, which can restore your tooth and your smile in just one visit.

A tooth may need restoration because of severe decay or traumatic injury that damages the tooth. Either way, the goal is to give you back a beautiful and functioning tooth in as little time as possible. CEREC does just that. Whether your tooth restoration requires a porcelain crown, an inlay, onlay or another common restoration, we can make fast work of this procedure without sacrificing quality at all.

The CEREC Procedure

Traditionally, tooth restorations required x-rays, impressions, models and at least two appointments to complete. CEREC uses a digital infrared camera that captures an optical impression of your damaged tooth. This image is then entered into a computer equipped with 3-D CAD software that designs your crown, inlay, onlay or other restoration. The virtual model of your tooth that this system creates also determines the correct color, shape and chewing surface for your restoration.

This virtual model is then wirelessly transmitted to the milling unit in Dr. Dreher’s office and your restoration is fabricated from porcelain or composite materials in about 20 minutes. Dr. Dreher adhesively bonds the new restoration to your prepared tooth and you are on your way with a completely restored smile. Take care of your restoration that same way you do your natural teeth—brush and floss every day and be sure to schedule biannual checkups with Dr. Dreher so he can regularly inspect your restoration.
