CEREC crown technology reduces this timeline to just one
visit. Your teeth are prepared, and then the handheld Bluecam
acquisition camera is used to create a digital impression of your teeth.
Dr. Kim uses that impression (which replaces the physical one
that used to be sent to the lab) to create exact specifications for your
restoration. The restoration is milled from ceramic on-site, while you
wait and enjoy our comfortable amenities. The crown is fitted and
polished. Dr. Kim then bonds the crown in place, and you are
ready to go.
In this busy world, one less appointment is one less thing
keeping you from what you'd rather be doing. If you need a crown, talk
to us about CEREC.
One Visit Ceramic Restorations
Our new CEREC crown equipment represents the very latest technology in on-site dental crown production.
After the teeth are prepared, a digital impression is
created using the Bluecam handheld camera to take a digital impression.
Bluecam is considered superior to any other technology of its kind on
the market, yielding the most detailed, sharp digital impressions.
CAD/CAM (computer assisted design/computer assisted
manufacture) technology allows us to take this digital impression and
create a crown for you while you wait.
Exact specifications regarding contour, color and
opacity are coupled with the digital impression, and communicated to the
milling unit, which mills the restoration. We also have a programmable
custom staining oven, which is used to make your new crown look
absolutely natural, and absolutely beautiful.
