CEREC technology revolutionizes how Northwoods Dental can repair & restore damaged teeth.
With CEREC, your Plymouth, MN dentist can build you a new Restoration that is beautiful and strong in a single visit.
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and it is nothing short of amazing. The ability for the Northwoods dentists to restore a damaged tooth with a brand new ceramic restoration without having to use an outside lab saves you both cost and time. Best of all, the CEREC restorations are natural looking since they are made with tooth-colored material.
The CEREC restoration are made metal free with ceramic material that is compatible with the tissues in your mouth. They are high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque resistant. They also allow us to save more of your damaged tooth.
To create a CEREC restoration, we will use a Digital Image to create an optical impression of your damaged tooth. Then CEREC creates a precise restoration through the use of a high-speed diamond bur and disk that mills a crown out of a solid block of ceramic. We then bond the new tooth restoration to your damaged tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
