Getting It Done: Dental Restorations in One Easy Appointment
Thanks To the CEREC Machine, You Can Get Same Day Dental Restorations at Cortes Advanced Dentistry
Get it done. Your oral health is important, and if the slightest ailment is ignored it can snowball into a mess of problems. For instance, did you know that gum disease has been linked to:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Heart attacks
The link derives from the higher levels of bacteria caused by gum disease which can travel via your bloodstream and cause the above mentioned problems. Gum disease can also cause tooth loss.
Get Same Day Restorations at Cortes Advanced Dentistry…
Think about the convenience of it: just one visit to the dentist and you’re done. At Cortes Advanced Dentistry we use the CEREC machine for same day restorations. CEREC stands for Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and can be used to create:
- Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. Veneers are a great way to cosmetically enhance your smile as they look just like your natural teeth.
- Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain veneers are a great way to strengthen a damaged or decayed tooth. Porcelain crowns are often needed after a root canal, particularly bad filling or damage sustained from an injury.
Aesthetically speaking, crowns are great because they look and feel just like your natural tooth. Functionally, they can be a long-term solution that covers the entire tooth like a cap.
- Porcelain Inlays and onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays have replaced the old amalgam fillings. Porcelain inlays and onlays are safer, stronger and better for your health than amalgam fillings.
Inlays and onlays are better for your health because they:
- Don’t contain mercury
- Cover and fill the entire tooth: with amalgam fillings there was always the chance of decay forming under the filling. This does not happen with porcelain restorations.
- Amalgam expands and contracts due to temperature changes in the mouth: amalgam fillings have been known to crack teeth. Porcelain restorations do not have this problem.
The only difference between an onlay and an inlay is the area of treatment: both are aesthetically pleasing options for oral restorations.
Get It Done in One Easy Appointment…
All you have to do is sit there, while a Cortes Advanced Dentistry dentist takes an impression of your tooth with a camera. Once the impression has been taken the restoration is prepared, designed and milled in-office.
The benefits of the CEREC machine are:
- save time: only takes one appointment
- save money: see above
- no strange unpleasant putty placed in the mouth to get a mold
- no fragile temporary cap placed while you wait for a lab to make your restoration
- a same day porcelain restoration will fit and feel like a natural tooth
