Do you need a major restoration? Is your tooth damaged in a way that can’t be repaired with dental bonding? A crown might be the best choice to restore your tooth to function and beauty. But getting a crown can take time, from making a custom mold, sending it to the lab, waiting for it to be refit and maybe sending it back again for adjustments. We know that our patients are busy – that’s why we offer CEREC® one-visit crowns.
What are CEREC Crowns?
What are CEREC crowns?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. With this amazing technology, Dr. Birriel can quickly restore damaged smiles using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of your teeth. The CEREC machine simply takes a digital image of your tooth and then creates a restoration – made just for you – in a few minutes.
CEREC technology in Dr. Birriel’s Morgan City office makes it possible to have one of these custom-fitted crowns or even an onlay or inlay, created and placed in just one appointment. That means no second shot, no annoying temporaries, and no return visit.
Why Would I Want a CEREC Restoration?
Why Would I Want a Cerec Restoration?
CEREC is the easier choice to repair broken or damaged teeth, and a timesaving opportunity to replace the unattractive metal fillings in your mouth. The CEREC ceramic material is more natural in appearance and, in some cases, even blocks bacteria more effectively than old-fashioned mercury-based fillings.
