At many dental offices, if you need a porcelain crown or filling made for your tooth, it takes multiple trips to the dentist. Your dentist has to take numerous impressions of your tooth, send the images to a lab, and wait while they create your crown or filling. During the waiting period a temporary crown or bridge has to be worn until the final product is made, delivered, and then placed in your mouth. Thanks to CEREC dentistry, all of that can be accomplished in one visit.
Indianapolis-based Dr. John Phelps is a CEREC dentist who is proud to offer same-day restorations to his patients. CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics” and it uses computer-aided design to map your tooth and create your ceramic restoration in one visit. Advantages of this technology include:
- Same-day restorations
- Cheaper because of less visits to the office
- High success rate of 95.5 percent after nine years
- More comfortable than traditional impressions
- High-quality porcelain is metal free
Those are just a few of the many benefits of CEREC dentistry. Our dentist Dr. John Phelps can talk to you more about the quality and effectiveness of this technology so that you can feel good knowing you’re getting the best treatment for your oral care.
