In days past, custom-designed dental crowns and other restorations would typically need to be created at an off-site dental lab, necessitating a return trip to the office. While the results were often exemplary, the fact is that several trips to the dentist was simply too inconvenient for many patients. Here at Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry, we have embraced remarkable new technology that can create crowns, porcelain dental veneers, and other restorations right here in our office – in a single visit!
With the CEREC® milling system, Dr. Michael Fulbright can restore damaged teeth and improve the appearance of your smile with customized, natural-looking results in only one appointment. CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The technology allows Dr. Fulbright to take an optical impression of the tooth targeted for treatment, and then design the restoration on a computer. Once the design is complete, the specialized milling technology uses it to precisely and accurately create the restoration on a machine located here at our practice. The restoration is specifically designed to blend in with your surrounding teeth and function like a natural tooth. Once Dr. Fulbright bonds the restoration to your tooth, the treatment is complete. The entire process usually takes about an hour.
With CEREC® One-Visit Restorations, our practice can make dental treatment more convenient than ever!
