As part of our commitment to helping you achieve a stronger, more stunning smile that fits your lifestyle and budget, we offer CEREC one-visit porcelain dental crowns, inlays, and onlays, making it possible for you to discover the strength and beauty of porcelain crowns in less time and with fewer trips to the dental office. We know your smile and your time are both valuable – that’s why we provide excellent care for both!
Since 1987, CEREC one-visit crowns, inlays, and onlays have been used to replace metal fillings, restore broken teeth, and fix teeth that have been damaged by decay. No metal filling lasts forever, and many people prefer to have their metal fillings replaced with metal-free, mercury-free alternatives. That's just one advantage of CEREC crowns, inlays, and onlays -- they are made from porcelain, which offers a natural appearance for your smile's restorations. But another advantage is that the entire process can be performed in a single visit. No more waiting for your dental restorations to come back from the lab or wearing temporary restorations while you wait.
Before beginning treatment, Dr. Neslund will examine your tooth to determine which type of CEREC restoration will work best for your case. Which type of restoration is chosen depends on how much healthy tooth is left, as well as other factors. Once he has determined whether you need a crown, inlay, or onlay, he can begin preparing your mouth for the process.
CEREC one-visit crowns use special technology to make impressions of your teeth and mill your porcelain crown all onsite and in just about an hour’s time. While traditional crowns require that your impressions be sent to a dental lab and your crowns take up to a couple of weeks to create, our CEREC machine will use CAD/CAM technology to perform the entire procedure from start to finish right here in our dental office.
For patients in Camp Hill, Mechanicsburg, Boiling Springs, and surrounding communities who are looking for the convenience and cosmetic-quality dental restorations available with CEREC one-visit crowns, inlays, and onlays, Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can deliver.
