Imagine being able to have a ceramic restoration custom made and fitted in one appointment! With our in-house revolutionary CEREC® technology, Dr. John Griffing is able to design, fabricate and permanently fit a new ceramic dental crown, inlay, or onlay in just one visit.
How does CEREC® work?
After DR Griffing prepares your tooth, a digital image is taken using a special camera. The computer captures the image and converts it into a 3D computerized model of your tooth. This image is then used as a template to custom design the new restoration. Once Dr. Griffing has perfected the design of the new tooth, the data is sent to the on-site milling machine where the new restoration is fabricated from a high-quality ceramic block within 5-10 minutes. Dr. Griffing determines the color of the ceramic block so that it esthetically matches your surrounding teeth. After milling, the restoration is polished and then cemented into place on the prepared tooth.
