What is CEREC Dentistry?

Dentist Huntersville, NC

In the past, crowns and veneers required two visits to Tate C. Langdon in Huntersville, NC before they could successfully be put in place. And you’d have to wait a week or two in between visits before your porcelain restoration could be fabricated and be ready to be cemented on your tooth. This could be rather difficult for those who need an immediate solution to their smile problems. But with advanced technology, Dr. Langdon can now make veneers and other sorts of restorations in just a couple of minutes.

CEREC® Dentistry

CEREC is a system which allows Tate C. Langdon to fabricate restorations in just a matter of minutes by taking a digital image of the tooth in question. This is then turned into a 3D version on the computer which Dr. Langdon can modify to create the restoration. This information is then sent to a mill which is attached to the computer and then automatically creates the restoration. It takes around 6 to 30 minutes for the entire CEREC restoration to be completed.

CEREC restorations are made with ceramic. Because ceramic blocks are available in different colors and shades, Tate C. Langdon can create restorations which fit the color of your teeth. At the same time, Dr. Langdon in Huntersville, NC also has the choice to stain your restoration so that it will match your teeth. The best thing of all that is your newly milled restoration can be cemented right away. In essence, you could be done with everything within an hour.

Advantages of CEREC®

It’s immediate. The most obvious advantage of CEREC dentistry is that results can be obtained right away. Unlike traditional restorations, you do not have to wait for at least a week before you have your teeth repaired.

Less anaesthetic injections. Because CEREC restorations only require, at most, an hour before they can be cemented into place, that means you do not need more than one injection of anaesthesia. This makes CEREC restorations great for people who are anxious about staying numb or sedated for a long period of time.

The best thing about CEREC restorations is that the entire process is done completely by Tate C. Langdon in Huntersville, NC. Because Dr. Langdon has personally seen your teeth, he can best come up with your restorations. This is unlike traditional restorations which are made by a laboratory technician that you has never seen your actual teeth, only impressions.
