How to obtain dental restorations in one visit
At Living Wellness Dental Northland, we understand that most patients and families have busy, hectic daily schedules. Between work and play, it may seem almost impossible to reserve time at the dental office for dental work. Additionally, patients in the Calgary, Alberta, area who need dental restorations may find that scheduling more than one appointment just doesn’t fit their busy schedule. Thanks to advances in dentistry, our team is proud to offer one-visit dental crowns and restorations using our in-office CEREC device.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a computer-aided device that allows us to create custom dental restorations in just one visit. Using digital imaging technology, we can take impressions of your teeth and create a custom restoration on the spot. These restorations are made from high-quality ceramic materials and are designed to match the colour, shape, durability and function of your natural teeth allowing you to regain your radiant and functional smile.
The advantages of CEREC technology at our practice
Here at Living Wellness Dental Northland, we understand that our patients value their time as much as their oral health. That’s why we are proud to offer CEREC same-day crowns and restorations, allowing you to return promptly to your important work and family schedules. Unlike the standard scenario, where the fabrication and placement of the crown takes place over several appointments, we allow you the opportunity to improve your smile in just one visit!
What should I expect when I get a dental restoration using CEREC?
During your appointment, our team will first prepare the affected tooth by removing any decay or damage. We will then take digital impressions and use a milling machine, much like a 3-D printer, to create a custom restoration for you. Once the restoration is complete, it is placed on the prepared tooth with necessary adjustments made immediately to ensure comfort and function. It’s that simple! It has never been easier to repair your smile than it is today with CEREC technology at our practice. Living Wellness Dental Northland is pleased to add this amazing innovation to our suite of convenient, biologically compatible services available for new and returning patients and families seeking comprehensive care.
How do I care for my CEREC restoration?
Caring for your CEREC restoration is just like caring for your natural teeth. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting our team twice a year for regular dental cleanings and check-ups. As with any dental restoration, it is wise to avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods and candy that have the potential to damage the restoration or your natural teeth.
