Ceramic Crowns (Cerac)

CERAC  (Ceramic) Crown made in one dental visit

The Cerac Machine is an amazing piece of dental equipment that has advanced dentistry into the modern era.  The OLD  standard way to make a crown was to prepare the tooth and then take an impression. Almost everyone has experienced this form of dentistry. The CERAC  is a CAD/CAM machine that mills a perfect fitting inlay/onlay or crown.  The Dentist takes the impression with a very special OPTICAL CAMERA that sends the image to a computer.  The dentist then designs the crown on the computer and once  satisfied with the result  simply  tells the computer to make the restoration.   The only thing the dentist or technician has to do is select the proper shade of the patients teeth.  The ceramic blank is placed in the milling machine and in about 15 minutes the crown is finished.  At this point the crown needs to be custom stained before its ready to be placed in the mouth.   This  allows the restoration to be completed in a single visit in about an hour start to finish. 

Here at the Advanced Dental Cosmetic Center we have two CERAC Machines and Three Milling units and four firing ovens.  We keep in stock a complete inventory of BLANKS for every possible restoration.  Our patients love this form of modern dentistry and the best part is that the restorations are TOOTH COLORED and extremely cosmetic.  These restorations are biocompatable with the tooth and have nearly the same properties as enamel.  This is modern dentistry at its best and has brought cosmetic dentistry into the 21st Century.
