Our Barberton Same-Day Care with CEREC
Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or damaged in any way can lead to several dental complications, such as severe pain or decay. Finding emergency dental care as soon as these signs are noticed can greatly improve the chances of restoring the natural structure of the smile. At Austin Park Dental, we utilize the state-of-the-art CEREC machine to repair and restore the smiles of our patients in Akron with same-day dental services.
What is CEREC?
CEREC, which stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, is a cutting-edge dental technique that allows our dentists to craft same-day restorations from a single block of ceramic material using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology. This approach eliminates the need for additional appointments and temporary prosthetics, while supplying a comprehensive, durable solution for many common dental issues.
Process of CEREC
Receiving a same-day restoration produced by our CEREC machine is a straightforward process. Rather than utilizing traditional impression putty, Dr. Lynn or Dr. Bruce use a digital scan to obtain a precise depiction of patient’s unique dental situation. With these impressions, our Akron dentists are able to perform an accurate analysis. Additionally, compared with other methods, digital impressions provide a more comfortable and quicker experience for patients.
Based off these detailed models, our CEREC machine manufactures a restoration custom-designed to match your existing dentition. Fabricated from a single block of material, the results possess great strength and durability. To accommodate the individual dental needs of our patients, we have several types of materials available, including porcelain, E.Max, and zirconia.
Once crafted, Dr. Bruce places the prosthetic, making adjustments to ensure the restoration matches the color of surrounding teeth and fits comfortably.
Patients suffering from common dental issues related to the structure of the tooth many times can benefit from treatment with CEREC. CEREC can produce many restorations, including:
