If you’ve ever had a dental crown made, you know that the process can be time-consuming. Our team at Southcenter Dental is proud to offer a treatment that makes crowns, veneers, and bridges faster and simpler so that you can get back to enjoying life with just one visit.
Gone are the days when anesthetic was involved so that the crown can be placed. Also gone are the cumbersome, hassling steps needed to have an outside lab construct a crown. With CEREC, Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi scan your tooth using a small infrared camera that fits inside your mouth and takes a picture of the area in question. The image is then transferred and displayed on a computer screen, where Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi use the computer to design the dental crown. The crown is then milled from a high-grade ceramic material, all while you wait and enjoy the sights and sounds of our office. Once the machine is done milling, Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi place the crown on the tooth and have you out the door quickly so that you can get back to enjoying life.
The reduced time involved with this procedure makes the CEREC system especially appealing for patients who lead busy lives. CEREC patients benefit from this treatment because they needn’t deal with the having their teeth numbed, nor are they required to wear a temporary crown or return to our office for a follow-up visit.
To learn more about CEREC technology or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi at our convenient Tukwila, WA office, we invite you to give us a call today! We look forward to working with you!
