Getting a dental crown using a more traditional process can take several weeks. A typical process involves an initial appointment in which the dentist takes impressions and molds of a patient’s mouth, then sends the impressions to a local dental lab where the restorations are created. The patient must then come back to the dental office weeks later when the restoration arrives back from the laboratory in order to have the crown or onlay bonded into place. The entire process can be time consuming.
The New Way Using CEREC
Thanks to Westermeier Martin Dental Care, area patients can enjoy the best in state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Drs. Westermeier and Martin use CEREC technology to create restorations within one hour in one dental appointment. After the tooth is made ready, the doctor simply takes a picture with the computer and the CAD/CAM technology produces the restoration in minutes. This helps to create a natural, life-like restoration that can be bonded in the mouth in as little as one hour. The restorations offered at Westermeier Martin Dental Care are always metal-free and beautiful!
CEREC (which stands for Chair side Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) is a way for Drs. Westermeier and Martin to provide quality, high-end restorations faster and easier than ever before. CEREC allows the dentists to fabricate restorations on the spot, which is great in emergency situations like when a patient may have lost or broken a crown and needs a replacement as soon as possible. With the CEREC machine, faster restorations are available like never before!
