CEREC One-visit Crowns
Restore your smile with CEREC one-visit crowns!
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration in Esthetic Ceramics) is a high-quality system that allows us to restore damaged teeth in a single visit. We use ceramic and metal-free material to replace crown damage, which allows us to match the color and shape to your other, natural teeth. The material is also anti-abrasive and resistant to plaque, ensuring a quality, long-lasting alternative to traditional dental molds and repetitive visits for crown treatments
Technology today is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. Cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. One break-through instrument, CEREC 3-D, allows Dr. Hornstein to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving our patients valuable time, money, and inconvenience.
CEREC 3D uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer, and milling machine in one instrument. After removing the decay from your tooth, Dr. Hornstein uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of that tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where Dr. Hornstein will use CAD technology to design the CEREC one-visit crown. Then, CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, he bonds the new restoration to the surface of the prepared tooth. The whole process takes about one hour.
A tooth colored restoration means no more silver-colored fillings! CEREC one-visit crowns are natural-looking, compatible with the tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive, and plaque resistant. Dr. Hornstein no longer needs to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to the dental laboratory. Because of this revolutionary technology, the need for a second visit is entirely eliminated!
The CEREC system is an exciting addition to our office and we look forward to showing you how it can provide beautiful, strong results without requiring several visits. Please call today to arrange your next visit! Dr. Hornstein sees patients from Beachwood, Cleveland, Shaker Heights, Solon, Pepper Pike, and nearby Ohio areas for CEREC one-visit crowns.
