Adler Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Boulder Features One-Visit Crowns Using CEREC In-Office Milling Process. CEREC’s Availability Allows Patients to Receive High-Quality Custom-Made Crown Restorations in One Office Visit.
Boulder, Colorado, March 26, 2010 – The Boulder dental office of Dr. Michael Adler today released summary information on its featured one visit in-office dental crown system known as CEREC. The name CEREC is derived from CEramic REConstruction. CEREC is a dental restoration method that allows Dr. Adler to produce ceramic dental restorations such as crowns, onlays, and inlays using a variety of computer assisted technologies including 3D photography and CAD/CAM.
The CEREC procedure replaces and dramatically improves the traditional process for obtaining crowns that typically included placing a temporary crown and a return visit to the dentist after the permanent crown was prepared in an outside lab. Use of the CEREC milling device eliminates the requirement for a second visit. Instead crowns are custom made using the CEREC in-office milling device.
In summarizing the CEREC advantages the following are emphasized:
Speed: While it used to take weeks to complete the process of obtaining a crown, the use of CEREC allows crowns to be done in one office visit lasting about an hour. It is also reported that conservation of the tooth structure can be enhanced. In some cases a partial coverage restoration can be completed vs. a full conventional crown.
Precision and Accuracy: Images taken of a patient’s teeth allow precise measurements. The computerized CEREC milling device prepares crowns with precision for a superior overall result.
Ceramic Material: The ceramic material used to create the crowns expands and contracts similar to natural teeth, minimizing the risk of cracking. Materials also match the appearance of natural teeth to produce an aesthetically pleasing appearance. CEREC’s milled ceramic is reported to be stronger than hand layered and pressed alternatives.
Adler Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is open weekdays by appointment. Additional information about the practice and services offered is available at www.adlerdentistry.com.
