Patients in Wrentham, MA enjoy CEREC crowns in one visit with their dentist
Restorations such as dental crowns from a traditional dentist may take a long time to complete from start to finish. Luckily, Dr. Ross Palioca in Wrentham, MA offers patients an alternative solution using CEREC advanced technology. CEREC is a specialized device that allows patients to enjoy dental crowns in just one visit!
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a system that uses CAD/CAM technology to complete dental restorations in just minutes! Dr. Ross Palioca finds that this can save patients a lot of time. These restorations are just as strong and durable as restorations completed in a dental laboratory by a ceramist. Traditional impressions are eliminated – now, a specialized pen-like device takes images of the teeth within seconds and sends them to the software to create the design of the new restoration. The restoration is then milled out of porcelain right in the office within approximately 15 minutes, and then it is bonded into place in the patient’s smile for immediate results.
What are the benefits of CEREC crowns?
CEREC crowns are:
- Simple to place
Dr. Ross Palioca finds that many patients love the ability to restore their smiles in just one appointment, instead of the traditional way. Other dentists prepare the teeth with filing down the natural enamel, take messy impressions and molds, place temporary restoration, and then wait a week or longer to have the new restoration and bond it in place. Instead of doing all of this, we can handle the entire process in one appointment with our digital technology!
Are CEREC dental crowns appropriate?
With CEREC, dental crowns are made from the same material as those fabricated in a laboratory. The benefit is that they are done right in the office using digitized impressions, which ensures a precise fit and proper function. These restorations are just as durable and beautiful as those made outside of the office, but in a fraction of the time. The dentist has control over the entire process, ensuring that everything is done right the first time!
How long does the process take?
From preparation of the tooth to the bonding of the dental crown in place, most appointments are less than an hour. Whereas traditional dentists require extensive time for sending out the impressions and waiting for the final dental crown to arrive at the office. Patients with busy schedules may find it hard enough to get into the dental office for their appointments and having to book extra appointments for later can interfere with work, school, or social activities. Dr. Ross Palioca respects his patients’ time and can provide speedy services during a single appointment.
Does it hurt to place a dental crown?
Dental crowns are not painful. Even the removal of a thin portion of enamel around the tooth is done with proper anesthetics, and sedation if needed. Bonding the dental crown in place doesn’t hurt and helps in protecting the natural tooth – saving patients from having to consider tooth replacement options.
What else can be fabricated with the CEREC system?
