Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has been revolutionizing many industries, including dentistry. Remember when it used to take two separate appointments to get a dental crown? Even just a few years ago, patients had to endure mouthfuls of messy impression materials and wearing temporaries for weeks at a time. Now, with our CEREC system, it is all a thing of the past!
Dr. Tucker can now complete beautiful restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in-office, in only one appointment.
Benefits for our patients:
- Safe and simple procedure
- One appointment
- Advanced optical technology provides absolute precision
- No need for temporary restorations
- No unpleasant or messy impressions
Our CEREC system allows Dr. Tucker to replace conventional impression methods with a clean, fast digital scan that is obtained in just a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken in the mouth. Combining this scanned data with our advanced software, we’re able to design a custom, permanent restoration. A milling unit then fabricates your restorative design quickly and conveniently, right in our dental office.
