CEREC technology actually condenses the traditional dental crown procedure into just a single office visit. If time is money, you can’t afford to choose any other way to get the dental crown restorations you need. Make an appointment with Dr. Vacek today for your metal-free CEREC dental crown. Vacek Family Dentistry proudly serves families throughout the Lincoln, NE, Waverly, Hickman, Firth, Crete, and Seward communities.
How Does the CEREC Crown system work?
- First, Dr. Vacek will examine your teeth to make sure that CEREC restoration is an appropriate treatment option.
- If it is, he will clean the area around the affected tooth and apply a local anesthetic to prepare the tooth for the restoration.
- Next, a digital impression is taken using an optical or laser scanner. This impression is entered into the CEREC computer system. The CAD software creates a virtual model of your teeth to design your crown. This process involves identifying the appropriate color, shape, and biting surface for your restoration.
- The approved design is then sent wirelessly to a milling unit that’s located inside our office. The milling unit will fabricate your crown using blocks of porcelain, composite, or lithium disilicate in about 20 minutes.
- When the milling process is complete, your crown can be polished or stained and glazed to create a natural appearance that blends with your surrounding teeth.
- Once your restoration is finalized, it is placed and checked for fit and then cemented in your mouth, all in one short visit.
With new CEREC crowns, there’s no need to use the traditionally messy impression materials and trays. Without these unpleasant materials, you’re much less likely to experience discomfort during your procedure. For a faster and more convenient dental restoration, make your CEREC crowns appointment with Dr. Vacek today. Dr. Vacek and his experienced team at Vacek Family Dentistry proudly restore smiles daily throughout Lincoln, NE, Waverly, Hickman, Firth, Crete, Seward, and the communities.
