The development of the CEREC system is one of the most revolutionary developments in dentistry. It allows your dentist to create a new dental crown or restoration right there in his office. Say goodbye to multiple appointments and uncomfortable temporary solutions. Dr. Casey Hart in Marietta, GA, offers these fast and efficient restorations for all eligible patients. Here's everything you've ever wanted to know about CEREC.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. It is a 3D chairside design and milling technology that allows dentists to design and build high-quality dental restorations (onlays, inlays, bridges, or crowns) in one single visit. Who wouldn't like to have attractive, high-quality dental restorations in only one appointment at the dentist?

CEREC Procedure 

First, a camera is used to take a digital photo of your tooth. The CEREC software then takes the photo and converts it into a 3-D virtual model on the computer screen. Your dentist works with the software to design your perfect restoration. Finally, a ceramic block that matches the shade of your tooth is placed in the CEREC milling machine. The machine then does what it’s designed to do and makes you a new restoration right there!

Benefits of CEREC

Your dental restoration is created from a thick, durable block of ceramic that is able to withstand wear and tear. CEREC dental restorations won't crack or leak over time. They are also tailored to match the natural shade of your teeth. Nothing gives the same luster and depth as CEREC dental restorations. With CEREC dental restorations you can have a smile that's strong and beautiful!

If you need a dental restoration, why wait? We can help you today. Call Dr. Casey Hart in Marietta, GA, at 770-926-8371. CEREC dental restorations will improve your appearance and give you the confidence to smile again. Remember, a better life starts with a better-looking smile.

They're faster and better. That's how we describe same-day dental crowns. Created and placed in a single visit by your dentist in his Marietta, GA, office, CEREC crowns restore teeth beautifully. Dr. Casey Hart is proud to offer them to qualified patients. Here's more.

Do you need a dental crown?

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap made of quality, dental-grade porcelain. It fits over your tooth, restoring its color, shape, size and strength. Porcelain crowns finish dental implants and teeth healed by root canal therapy, too. Most often, they protect cracked, chipped or heavily decayed or restored teeth.

At his Marietta, GA, office, Dr. D. Casey Hart examines teeth to determine their suitability for crown restoration. If your tooth is a candidate, you should receive a same-day crown, coming into the office and leaving with your restoration in place in just about two hours or less.

The treatment involves a local anesthetic to make you completely comfortable. Then, Dr. Hart removes the damaged areas and prepares the tooth so it can receive its crown. Next, the CEREC magic begins.

CEREC crowns

CEREC is the abbreviation for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. In short, your dentist uses computerized design and manufacturing processes to create your crown.

Even oral impressions are digital. That means no messy impression putty or awkward trays. Plus, your dentist prefers the precision of three-dimensional images.

The CEREC machine mills the crown in about 20 minutes. When Dr. Hart removes it, he may add some coloration as needed. Then, he bonds the crown over your tooth. You're done.

Other reasons to prefer same-day crowns

1. Your new crown looks realistic, and it's durable. Modern dental ceramics flex as you eat, and they're plaque-resistant.

2. Your CEREC crown should last for many years. As with any dental restoration, longevity depends on your diligent hygiene practices and the stresses you expose your crown to.

3. Same-day processes avoid extra trips to the dental office, saving you gas money and time off from work. Plus, you don't have to wear a temporary crown.
