Dental Restorations in Lake Zurich, IL - Village Dental Center
CEREC Veneer and Crown Restorations in a Day!
Having damaged or discolored teeth can easily impact your self-esteem as much as it can have a negative effect on your oral health. Traditional dental treatments for tooth decay or damage meant going through the process of messy impressions and a lengthy waiting period while a dental lab hand-makes your new crown, or other restoration. However, advances in dental technology have made improving your smile a more turn-key process. At Village Dental Center, Dr. Kaplan can use CEREC technology to create one-day crowns in Lake Zurich – reducing your treatment time to as little as a few hours.
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chair-Side Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and is an advanced way to get dental treatment that is tailored for your needs, without referring work to an outside dental lab. With CEREC, Dr. Kaplan can take high-quality, digital images of your smile and use them to re-create a 3-D model of your mouth. This quick and easy process negates the need for standard dental impressions and allows CEREC’s software to precisely create a crown that fits perfectly in line with your natural teeth
The Benefits of Choosing CEREC Same-Day Crowns
The power of CEREC’s imaging and milling equipment makes it the ideal choice for creation of crowns, veneers, and other restorative and cosmetic treatments. With CEREC, you get:
• Comfort and Convenience – Getting a CEREC one-day crown from Dr. Kaplan means less discomfort for patients, in the way of any drilling, impressions, and application of temporaries. The treatment planning process involves taking a few pictures of your mouth, and you can leave with your permanent dental crown in the same day.
• Quick Turn-Around Time – Getting a one-day crown at Dr. Kaplan’s Lake Zurich dental office requires a single trip. Most restorative dental methods spread your treatment across several visits, where you can expect tooth preparation, standard impressions, and application of a temporary restoration, followed by permanent treatment weeks later. With CEREC, Dr. Kaplan can complete your treatment in a single appointment from initial oral health evaluation, to final application of your completed restoration.
• High-Quality Materials - With CEREC, Dr. Kaplan can use strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural beauty and function. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth, other than amalgam, gold, and other metals, but these materials conduct heat and cold, and can expand and contract – causing discomfort for patients. A CEREC tooth restoration with ceramic is made to closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. Not only will your treatment be completed in one visit, but you can expect to leave the Village Dental office with a metal-free smile that you can feel good about showing off.
CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers.
