Troy CEREC Treatments
The Troy dentists at Meadowbrook Family Dentists embrace exciting technical advances that improve the patient experience — such as eliminating the need for x-rays and long waits for impressions through the use of CEREC technology.
Short for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, CEREC takes faster pictures of your teeth at higher resolutions, identifying how a crown might fit and immediately creating an impression. In as little as fifteen minutes, your crown can be ready for placement.
Rather than wait weeks for plaster fittings, this method helps your Troy CEREC dentist to digitize your mouth impressions and create your crown in under twenty minutes.
Because CEREC technology allows for microscopic pictures of your teeth, it creates very precise plaster impressions. With equally precise data entered by your dentist, your crown or filling will be milled as accurately as possible.
CEREC provides a great alternative for people with a strong gag reflex. Because CEREC uses pictures and data to create a model of your mouth, there’s no need to sit with unpleasant goo or plastic wedges stuck in your mouth.
Unlike normal crowns and fillings, CEREC eliminates cracking by using ceramic material that expands and contracts naturally with your teeth. The durable ceramic mimics the solid feel of your teeth — neither uncomfortably hard nor strangely soft. Additionally, they last much longer so you don’t need to worry about replacements. By using ceramic crowns, CEREC also eliminates using mercury or other toxic metals in your mouth.
