I have been searching for a dentist in my area since I moved. My husband and I have found our family dentist! I have had 2 crowns and several cleanings so far and every visit I am more impressed with Lakefront Family Dentistry! They make unpleasant but necessary treatment…PLEASANT! I am so amazed at the new technology in dentistry and happy that my dentist has this knowledge! Dr. Phillipe is caring and has a wonderful personality! He is enjoyable company in an otherwise uncomfortable situation! Previously, I was sent to an Endodontist..he couldn’t find my issue. Dr. Phillipe found it and fixed it! The staff is also very nice! Everyone I encountered at Lakefront Family Dentistry made me feel welcome and their main concern was my comfort! I 100% recommend Dr. Phillipe at Lakefront Family Dentistry!! – Kristen G.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a unique software system that allows qualified dental practitioners to create high quality ceramic restorative dental crowns using 3-Dimensional Computer-Assisted Design (CAD) software, along with a Computer-Assisted Milling (CAM) device. Dentists using the CEREC system are able to create custom fitted dental crowns right from their office within a matter of minutes!
Before the CEREC system was introduced, patients in need of dental crowns were required to make multiple visits to the dentist. These dental products were manufactured at offsite locations using a plaster molded impression of the patient’s mouth, and often required multiple fittings before the crown could be permanently bonded.
Using the CEREC system, dental impressions are created in-house using a high-resolution 3-D imaging camera and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. Dentists uses a Computer-Aided Milling (CAM) device to create an incredibly precise-fitting dental crown made from a block of high quality ceramic that is matched to the color of your natural teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Using CEREC?
The CEREC CAD/CAM system creates dental restorations that are preferred by patients because:
- The 3-D imaging used by the CEREC system eliminates the need for sticky, messy tooth impression molds traditionally needed to manufacture dental crowns.
- Patients spend less time in the chair. Only one office visit is required to complete the dental restoration procedure.
- CEREC crowns are created using high quality ceramic that does not contain mercury or toxic metals.
- The CEREC CAD/CAM technology is precise and accurate. Ceramic crowns created using this technology are custom-designed for a perfect, natural tooth-colored fit for each patient.
- CEREC crowns are permanently bonded (never temporary), and may last for more than 10 years with proper cleaning, flossing and bi-annual cleanings.
- The ceramic material that is used to create crowns expands and contract just as your natural teeth does. This eliminates the risk of cracking that is common with materials used in older crown technology.
- An instant CEREC crown reduces the risk of discomfort and bacteria leakage into the site, which is common in temporary dental cap use.
- More of your natural tooth enamel is preserved because the CEREC crown is chemically bonded to the tooth.
Actual Patient Photo and Smile Transformation on Uppers Using CEREC
This client came to Lakefront Family Dentistry with their teeth exactly as you see in their “Before Picture” below. They were very unhappy with the way their teeth were turning out with another dentist. Fortunately, they were referred to our dentists, who then transformed their smile and gum line so it was healthy and aesthetically pleasing, which you can see in their “After Picture.” The patient was very happy with their smile transformation and new dentist!
What is the Difference Between Traditional Porcelain Crowns and CEREC Crowns?
The normal procedure to install a traditional porcelain crown involves the dentist taking a mold of your mouth to create an impression that will be used to make a permanent crown. After the impression is taken, the dentist prepares the tooth for the crown replacement. The patient is sent home with a temporary cap while an offsite laboratory manufactures a new crown out of porcelain. A couple weeks later, the patient returns to be fitted with the permanent porcelain crown.
By using the revolutionary CEREC system, our CEREC dentists, Dr. Phillipe and Dr. Hauser, and their experienced team has eliminated the need for foul-tasting, uncomfortable plaster mold impressions, and multiple visits.
Using a high resolution camera and a medical grade computer, our staff takes 3-D images of the teeth and creates a dental impression. Based on the specifications created by the 3-D imaging software, a computer-assisted milling device is used to create a permanent, natural looking ceramic crown. The ceramic crown is created while the patient waits and is permanently installed on the same visit, eliminating much of the discomfort and risk of infection that is associated with the use of temporary caps.
My son and I have been coming here for a few years and wouldn’t change it, or consider another dentist. Dr. Hauser, Dr. Phillipe and his staff are all amazing, incredibly sweet, and make you feel so comfortable during the whole stay and the therapy dogs always are a huge plus when getting treated. My son has had a few cavities filled, he never even realizes when they inject the numbing stuff. Not a tear is ever shed here or anxiety triggered with their hospitality and professionalism. My son actually gets excited to come in for even a cleaning which used to never happen before. We highly recommend them, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you lakefront family dentistry, we appreciate all you do! – Nessa N.
Do CEREC Crowns Look and Feel Like Natural Teeth?
Yes, CEREC crowns are created to look and feel like your natural teeth. Using our computer-assisted design and milling technology, we are able to shape and color ceramic crowns to perfectly match the look and feel of your existing teeth. You can eat, brush and floss with your CEREC crowns just as you do your natural teeth.
Are CEREC Restorative Dental Products Right For Me?
In order to determine whether CEREC crowns are a good option for you, our experienced dentists will first need to do a thorough examination of your mouth and teeth before discussing your best options.
We often recommend CEREC crowns for patients looking to:
- Restore and protect teeth that are broken, cracked or otherwise damaged
- Cover a dental implant
- Protect and cover a tooth after a root canal
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Improve their smile by restoring discolored and misshapen teeth
At Lakefront Family Dentistry, we aim to create a lasting impression and enjoyable experience for all of our clients who trust their oral health care to us. Please contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Phillipe or Dr. Hauser today. We look forward to being able to serve the needs of your family.
