The Benefits Of CEREC

Quick, easy, beautiful, and durable dental crowns and fixed bridgework can be yours through advanced CEREC technology from your dental crownsWaukesha, WI family dentists at Complete Family Dentistry. How do CEREC restorations differ from conventional crowns and bridges? There are no long wait times, fit and bite are spot-on precise and aesthetics are totally natural. Dr. Joel Jahmiak, Dr. Cathleen Raz, and Dr. Kendra Loch invite you to explore the possibilities of a fully functional and beautiful smile with Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

Your smile needs help

You have a damaged tooth, or maybe you have lost two teeth and have a worrisome gap. A crown covers and protects remaining healthy tooth structure, giving it natural form and function once again. A fixed bridge supplies pontic, or artificial teeth, to fill in your smile. Customized dental crowns hold those pontics in place so you look, smile, chew, and speak as you should.

Fortunately, today's inventive dental technologies take these tried and true restorations and craft them so accurately they are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. Plus, with CEREC design and manufacturing processes, your Waukesha family dentist avoids the long wait times associated with using an outside dental lab. CEREC crowns and bridges are manufactured chairside in just about an hour.

How CEREC works

Your family dentist in Waukesha uses a small handheld instrument to take digital impressions of your mouth. He or she uses the three-dimensional images to model the restoration using computer-aided design software. Then, the CEREC milling apparatus takes dental grade ceramic and fashions it into the perfect crown or bridge.

When your dentist removes the crown or bridge from the chairside machine, he or she colors it and polishes it for the most realistic result. When permanently bonded in place, the restoration blends in with surrounding teeth and bites correctly with the opposite arch. Typically, little to no adjustment is necessary because CEREC processes are so precise.

You're done

From examination, to design, to fabrication, to placement, your CEREC crown or bridge takes one appointment at Complete Family Dentistry. Isn't that convenience just great? And, you'll love the durability of your crown or bridge, too. With twice daily brushing and once a day flossing at home as the American Dental Association advises, you'll keep your restoration free of plaque and tartar. Combine your at-home hygiene with in-office care, and you'll keep your new crown and bridge for 10 years or more.
