Do you know what’s worse than having to go to the dentist for a tooth restoration? Having to make multiple visits for the same issue. Dental restorations like crowns, inlays, and onlays can sometimes take a handful of trips to complete instead of a new crown or repaired tooth in one appointment. Thankfully, modern dentistry has brought you CEREC in Harris County. Keep reading to learn what CEREC is and how it can save you time in the dentist’s chair.
What is CEREC?
CEREC, short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, uses computer aided design technology to take impressions of your teeth and generate an exact fitting crown, inlay, or onlay in just one visit!
What Makes CEREC So Convenient?
The traditional placement of a dental crown, inlay, or onlay takes multiple visits and weeks to complete. Your dentist cleans the tooth, makes a mold of it, and places a temporary restoration on the tooth until the permanent one is ready. This usually takes a couple of weeks, and you’ll have to go back to the dentist’s office to have your permanent restoration placed.
With CEREC, you can receive your permanent restoration in just one visit. Your dentist will take digital impressions to make a more comfortable and accurate mold compared to traditional impressions that use plaster.
So, do you have a busy schedule? Making time for multiple dental visits can be a real hassle. That’s why CEREC is so great for many patients. With a job, family, errands, cooking, hopefully some down time, and so much more, it can be hard to get in to see your dentist in Harris County. When choosing a dentist, consider what kind of technology they have for excellent and convenient dental care.
Why is Dental Technology Important?
Some dentists may not have the technology necessary for CEREC. At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we have advanced dental technology that allows us to treat our patients better and faster. We are constantly growing and bettering ourselves to provide the highest quality and most convenient care for our patients.
We offer CEREC to our patients because we know how filled your schedule can get, especially this time of year. Additionally, we have digital X-Rays for higher quality imaging, but it also saves you from harmful radiation from traditional X-Ray machines.
