Old Silver Fillings
CEREC replacement crowns
CEREC is a proven technology where several advances in technology have come together to improve our capability of delivering a superior dental solution in our office. By combining advances in Digital X-rays, Computer Aided 3-D Design, Computer Controlled Milling and recent advances in materials technology we can now offer One Visit Dental Crowns.
The process we use to build your crown starts with taking Digital X-Rays of the area. Micro-measurements are taken of your adjacent teeth and your existing damaged tooth structure.
Convert your old silver fillings to new tooth colored porcelain!
Indications for replacement of your old fillings:
♦Are your fillings old, breaking down, large, & silver metal?
♦Are you starting to see small cracks around your old fillings?
♦Do your fillings cover two or more surfaces (top and sides)?
♦Do you feel sensitivity when you eat or drink cold drinks?
Using the specialized CEREC software we build a virtual model of your new tooth using the existing tooth structure and design a crown that will create that idealized tooth. After designing the crown, we feed the measurements into the Computer Aided Milling machine. The measurements are converted to a real crown. In about 30 minutes, we have a perfectly milled piece of porcelain to be fitted into your mouth.
