CEREC is a technology our team at Southcenter Dental uses for restoring damaged teeth. The procedure involves Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi digitally scanning the area in your mouth that needs restorative work and then creating a replacement using three-dimensional imagery and a milling machine. The best part? All of this takes place in just one appointment!
Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. There are many advantages of CEREC over traditional crown technology. Here are a few:
- Less time spent in the dental chair: We know our patients lead busy lives. CEREC crowns are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from the office, your loved ones, and other activities.
- More comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, which eliminates potential discomfort.
- Appealing on the eyes: CEREC’s tooth-colored ceramic materials help restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. They also closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.
- Durability: Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing porcelain to metal, meaning your smile will be stunning for years to come!
Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi are your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. Give us a call today at Southcenter Dental to learn more or schedule an appointment at our convenient Tukwila, WA office. We look forward to seeing you!
