The dental industry has made great strides in the past few years. Thanks to advanced technology, keeping your smile healthy is now easier than ever.
That being said, you have to keep in mind that things happen. You will bite down on an olive that has a pit and chip your tooth. You will have a cavity that continues to get worse because you didn’t know it was there. Things happen, but dentists today have the ability to restore your teeth to as close as to their natural state as possible.
That’s why I use and recommend CERAC restoration for a tooth damaged by extensive decay or fracture.
In the past, a dental crown required an inlay or onlay and two visits to the dentist. Now with CERAC, you can receive a custom-milled, tooth-colored ceramic restoration in just one visit to my dental office in Lake Orion, Michigan.
To begin the process, I will prepare your tooth and take digital images of the area needing the restoration. From these precise images, a custom ceramic restoration will be fabricated. Then, I will mill and secure your restoration.
The CERAC method is quick, comfortable, and removes the need for you to wear a temporary restoration prior to the placement of your permanent crown. Instead, you’ll leave Lake Orion Family Dentistry with a strong, beautiful, restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile and feels and functions just like a natural tooth.
I’m Dr. Brad Greenfield, and I’m an advocate of CERAC restorations because they are durable, attractive, protect the teeth and health of my patients, and fit into my patients’ busy schedules.
