One-Visit Dental Restorations
The CEREC system has been used by thousands of dentists around the world to quickly restore the strength and beauty of injured teeth with all-ceramic crowns. After examining and preparing the tooth, Dr. Graber can use the latest Primescan technology to take digital pictures of your tooth that are converted into a 3D model. A special milling machine takes this image and uses it to create a crown that can be placed on your tooth right away. With this approach, you won’t have to wait weeks for high-quality tooth repair!
At one point, silver and mercury were the preferred materials for filling cavities. Unfortunately, the results of using such restorations are generally unsightly, and because of the way they’re placed, they might ultimately end up weakening a tooth. Nowadays, it’s generally preferred to create fillings out of composite resin, which can be shaded to closely resemble your natural enamel and can actually strengthen the tooth by directly bonding with it. If you already have a silver filling, we can replace it with a tooth-colored one in as little as two appointments.
With a porcelain crown, even a badly damaged or decayed tooth can be made to look like new again. A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that covers the entire dental structure. They can be made out of metal, but porcelain is usually the preferred material since it can restore a tooth’s appearance without sacrificing strength or durability. With a crown in place, you’ll be able to chew comfortably and smile confidently again. Crowns can last for decades as long as you take good care of them.
