At the dental practice of Dr. Eric Wiitala, patients in and around the community of Scottsdale, AZ are available to help patients achieve the smile they’re always wanted! When imperfections or breakage threaten to impact the appearance and function of the smile, they can make patients feel self-conscious. Traditional dental work can take weeks to complete, including dental crowns and bridges, which are sent to outside laboratories for fabrication. However, with CEREC technology, patients can visit their dentist and have same-day repairs made right in the office!
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a specialized device that utilizes CAD/CAM software to create same-day restorations for patients in the office. Restorations may include:
• Dental crowns
• Dental bridges
• Dental veneers
• Inlays and onlays
This method of creating restorations starts with an impression of the prepared tooth, which is then converted into the software to create a digital mold of the patient’s tooth. Then, using the CAD/CAM software and blocks of colored porcelain, the dentist is able to mill out a restoration right in the dental office within 20 minutes or less. The restoration can be bonded in place within the smile and patients can leave the office with their repairs. No longer do patients have to wait for their restorations to be fabricated in a dental facility miles away, or have the dentist bond a temporary replacement while they wait. CEREC technology is not available in every dental office. Dr. Eric Wiitala is pleased to have invested in this technology for his patients in order to provide the best in dental service in the community. With the CEREC device, patients can save time and energy, while ensuring they receive prompt dental care and necessary restorations.
