In keeping with our dedication to using the most advanced technology available, we are proud to offer our patients same-day crowns with CEREC®. The revolutionary CEREC (Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) system enables us to improve your smile more easily and quickly than ever before. Thanks to CEREC, Dr. Varchetto can model, create, and place beautiful crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in just a single visit to our Arlington Heights dentist office!
How CEREC Works
First, we take photos of your tooth using a special digital camera. CEREC’s 3D imaging software then uses these photos to create a model of your restoration. This model is sent to our onsite milling machine for computer-aided manufacturing. Your restoration will be ready for placement in about 15 minutes.
The milling process is extremely precise, ensuring that your newly placed restoration will have a fit that feels natural once it’s polished and bonded to your tooth.
Ceramic crowns and restorations add much-needed strength to damaged or weakened teeth, meaning your smile is protected in the future. CEREC’s results feel natural in your mouth and are indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth, so you’ll have a smile that you’re proud to show off.
Benefits of CEREC
- Restorations are made and placed in the same visit, saving your valuable time.
- Advanced imaging technology eliminates the need for temporary crowns and messy impression trays.
- The biocompatible materials can be adjusted to match the natural shade of surrounding healthy teeth.
