Do you want a gorgeous smile free of dental imperfections such as teeth stains and misalignment? Unfortunately, if you’re like most people, you assume this is impossible due to your hectic schedule. Between work and family, who has time for multiple trips to the dentist? Your Columbia dentist, Dr. David Foster, understands the importance of a beautiful smile. Dr. Foster offers a breakthrough technology that allows him to create and place custom-made dental restorations in just one visit. In today’s blog, Dr. Foster discusses how CEREC technology makes restoring your smile simple and less time consuming.
With CEREC, Dr. Foster prepares your tooth and takes a series of photographs. These are uploaded unto a computer and used to create a 3D image of your tooth. The CEREC machine then mills your restoration from a block of dental ceramic based on this 3D image. After checking the fit, your Columbia TN cosmetic dentist will place your new restoration using a powerful bonding agent. Dental ceramic allows Dr. Foster to offer lifelike restorations. Your crowns and veneers can be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile, providing natural looking smile transformation.
Crowns are caps that fit completely over the visible portion of a tooth. Crowns are used to repair teeth damaged from injury or advanced decay. A dental crown also helps replace teeth in dental bridge and dental implant procedures. With CEREC technology, you can receive a custom-made crown in one appointment.
Veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain placed on the front of a patient’s tooth. Veneers allow Dr. Foster to:
- Mask permanent teeth stains
- Correct the appearance of misalignment
- Repair cracked or chipped teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Lengthen worn down teeth
- Reshape malformed or damaged teeth
Typically, placing veneers takes at least two visits. However, with CEREC, Dr. Foster can provide durable and esthetically pleasing veneers in a single visit.
