Same Day CEREC® Crowns

What is CEREC®?

A new state of the art method of reconstructing tooth restorations his called Chairside Economical Restorations of Aesthetic Ceramic or CEREC. CEREC uses CAD (Computer-Assisted Design) and CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) which allows for a single day restoration. Traditionally a patient has to wait two weeks for a crown to be molded, created, and sent back to the office. Now crowns and veneers can be created same-day, eliminating the need for a second appointment.

Advantages to Using CEREC

CEREC Is a revolutionary restorative process, here are some of the benefits:

  • -Most procedures can be done in one visit
  • -It is less costly and less time consuming
  • -No need to take messy impressions
  • -Longer lasting restorations
  • -Metal-free restorations
  • -Less painful injections because of a single visit
  • -There is no need to have a temporary crown while you were waiting for the new one
  • -Much of the natural tooth structure is saved
  • -Restores teeth to natural beauty strength a

The CEREC Process

CEREC uses CAD/CAM Technology in only one visit to design and create custom restorations. First of all, you will have an examination and Dr. John-Varghese will determine if this process is right for you.

Optical Impression  

A 3-dimensional image of your tooth will be created from a digital scan. This image will create the necessary foundation and impression in order to create the restoration without the need to take a messy impression. The computer and software then convert the digital image into a 3 dimensional model of your tooth.

 Milling Unit 

The milling unit is a device that is used to create the custom restoration. Dr. John-Varghese will select the correct color ceramic block and within minutes will be able to place the milled tooth into your mouth and adjust it accordingly so that your bite will be perfect.

Placing and Restoration  

After your new crown has been created, it is ready to be bonded and polished and your bite will be adjusted as necessary. One of the great benefits of this is no need of a temporary restoration and no need of a return trip which will save you time, pain and money.

If you were found yourself in need of a crown or veneer, make sure you call Dr. John-Varghese at Lyons Dental.

Making a decision concerning something that defines who you are to many the first time they see you can be intimidating and confusing. Dr. John-Varghese will walk you step by step through the decision process helping you understand every aspect.

CEREC Crowns or Just a Filling
Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC® for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. This new technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers for patients so that there is no longer a wait between preparing the restoration and finally receiving the finished product.
Dental Sealant or General Cleaning
Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces. The majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
The procedure is simple. It begins with short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.
We then apply the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which is designed to be used specifically with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up any stains and discoloration.

  • During this time you can relax.
  • The gel is applied for 3-4 fifteen minute sessions, for a total treatment time of 45-60 minutes.
  • Finally, you go home with your brighter, whiter smile. We also provide you with touch-up trays so you can maintain your new smile.
Dental Implant Restoration
During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.

Your dentist can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root. After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable your dentist to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.

Veneers and Laminates

Veneers and Laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.
