High-Tech Crowns and Bridges
No messy impressions here! Lengthy, uncomfortable crown and bridge procedures are a thing of the past, because Dr. Hall employs the CEREC 3-D impression system---and it can be done in one visit.
How the 3-D Cerec System Works
The procedure is simple: An intra-oral camera takes a digital scan of your teeth and the image is converted to a 3-D model on the computer. Dr. Hall uses this to design the restoration work needed, and the computer sends the data to a milling machine. A ceramic block matching your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine and in to 10 to 20 minutes, the restoration is finished. All that's left is ensuring proper fit, polishing and bonding. Bottom line: The 3-D CEREC method is advanced and economical technology that dental professionals and patients alike appreciate.
