When the tooth is damaged more than can be fixed with a tooth colored fillings, we utilize the strength and beauty of crystallized ceramics. Ceramics include inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers. Once the tooth is cleaned out and prepared, a digital 3d model of your tooth is captured using CEREC technology and a ceramic restoration is designed. Once the final design has been approved, a CADCAM mill will sculpt the final restoration which can then be placed on your tooth the same visit. For most situation, we no longer require you to wear a temporary restoration, and you can eat on the teeth once the anesthetic wears off.
