Dr. Nugent offers same-day tooth restorations with our advanced CEREC system. The CEREC system is a complete chairside Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) system that produces crowns in one dental visit. The restored tooth will be metal-free, as the crown is made from a cosmetic high strength ceramic. Using a handheld scanner, Dr. Nugent’s assistant will capture true 3-D intraoral images. No more gagging messy impression material. Then Dr. Nugent will then create a virtual model and design a custom made restoration. Dr. Nugent is in total control of your new crown. Next, the data is sent to the milling unit and your new crown is made.
CEREC Technology: Convenience, Quality and Speed
There are several advantages of CEREC over old fashioned dental lab crowns:
- CEREC restorations are made in one visit, saving the patient time and the inconvenience of multiple visits.
- The restoration will be completed in one visit. Thus, there is no need for a plastic temporary restoration that can break or fall off.
- The strong, cosmetic ceramic will restore your tooth to its natural strength, beauty, and function.
- Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional layering and pressing of ceramic, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
