Why our patients love CEREC!

Outdated dental crown methods still involve multiple dental visits for a complete crown or veneer to be restored. This antiquated method of crown creation and final placement meant more unnecessary numbing injections due to the required repeat visits. An uncomfortable mold was poured into the patients mouth only to be pulled out and re-done often due to the high margin of error inherent in this method... Ill fitting temporary crowns had to be worn for up to 2 weeks or more because the permanent crown or veneer had to be outsourced to a dental lab. Finally, the patients would have to endure grinding adjustments to ensure the crown was passable fit.

Believe it or not, the majority of dental practices still operate utilizing the above antiquated methods...Why go to all the trouble when dental technology offers you the very best in 100% fine porcelain restorations for your crowns and veneers completed chairside in a single visit... typically in less than 2 hours! CEREC 3-D gives you the beauty, strength and integrity...and convenience you need to enjoy eating and smiling again!

Finest Dental Materials

A CEREC tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, Dr. Lovan can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. So, your tooth does not crack, and you can go on enjoying your evening. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so Dr. Lovan can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.

Smile Enhancement

Dr. Lovan can use CEREC for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers. Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Enhance it with CEREC.
