Get The Dental Care You Need Right Away With Our Medford CEREC Dentists

by Dr. Vareldzis

When dental damage occurs, the last thing that you want to do is to have to wait around to get the restorative treatment that you need. That is why our Medford dentists have made it a priority to outfit our practice with convenient, efficient treatments that deliver full results quickly. One of these treatments is CEREC; keep reading to learn more!

“CEREC” stands for Chairside Economical Restorative Esthetic Ceramic; this is a technology that allows our dental team to craft restorations right here in our office, rather than having to rely on off-site labs.

How CEREC Technology Works

When you come in for an appointment with a damaged tooth, our dental team will perform an assessment and determine whether a dental crown can help you. If you’re a candidate for CEREC crowns, we’ll then clear away all of the damaged or infected dental material, and prep your tooth for treatment.

Once your tooth is prepped, we take a digital impression of the relevant tooth. This data is then input into the restoration milling machine, which goes to work creating a restoration to your exact specifications.

When the crown is complete, our team “dry fits” the restoration on your tooth, to ensure that it is a good fit. At this point, we’ll make any refinements necessary to help the crown integrate with your smile. The final step is to permanently attach the crown to the appropriate tooth.

Here’s the thing: this entire process happens in just one dental appointment. You don’t have to bother with a temporary crown, and you don’t have to schedule multiple appointments. We have found that patients love CEREC treatment for its ease of use and convenience.

CEREC crowns are milled from high-quality porcelain; these are not temporary crowns.

Our Medford CEREC dentists truly believe that part of our job is to make dental care as accessible and stress-free for our patients as possible. Discover a better way to restore your teeth—give us a call to schedule a personal consultation!
