Restoring a tooth with a dental crown, dental veneers or an inlay or onlay can involve a series of visits if the dentist has to send an impression out to a dental lab for fabrication. Patients typically have a temporary placed while they wait, which is not as comfortable or stable as the final restoration.
Apex Dental in Northborough has incorporated CEREC technology into its dental practice, enabling Dr. Gauthier and his associates to design, fabricate and place high quality, custom porcelain restorations during a single visit!
Home to a team of highly trained and experienced dentists and staff, Apex Dental offers a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to address almost any dental concern or problem. CEREC technology enables them to provide this high level of care in an expedited fashion for today’s busy patients.
CEREC uses digital CAD/CAM technology to produce accurate results that are comparable to restorations prepared in a dental laboratory. The materials are the same and results are durable, comfortable and natural looking.
Patients appreciate the benefits of CEREC, including the savings of both time and money! With the use of CEREC, there is less time in the dentist chair and thus a reduced use of anesthetics, dental tools and materials- all of which will reduce the overall cost.
How does CEREC work?
For patients who have a sudden broken tooth or loss of a restoration, CEREC enables them to walk out with their smile intact!
