CEREC Same-Day Crowns, Inlays, and Veneers in Lewiston
When you lead a busy life, fitting a routine visit to the dentist into your hectic schedule is hard enough. Few people in this situation have the time to make multiple appointments to receive porcelain restorations or cosmetic treatment. At our Lewiston dental practice, we utilize the state-of-the-art method of chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, or CEREC®, to provide patients with the convenience of same-day care. Through CEREC® and other modern technology, Dr. Randy Sorensen is able to place crowns, inlays, or veneers in a single appointment.
As a computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system, CEREC® gives our office the ability to fabricate the quality of crowns most expect from an outside dental laboratory in a single day. On average, the appointment to receive a same-day crown requires only slightly more than an hour. More than being convenient, the CAD/CAM technology Dr. Sorensen uses to design and create your restorations is precise, producing crowns that comfortably fit each unique smile.
When taking impressions, our Lewiston dentist uses digital imaging to form an accurate model of your teeth without the hassle and mess of traditional impression material. Once this model has been created, we use our in-office CEREC® equipment to make crowns according to your specific appearance goals and oral health needs. Made wholly from porcelain, these restorations can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, making them ideal for restoring the front teeth.
For patients experiencing decay between the curved edges of their teeth, Dr. Sorensen may recommend placing porcelain inlays following treatment. Ideal for many situations, our dentist uses these restorations to maintain much of the tooth’s natural durability. Similar to our same-day crowns, we can make and place inlays within a single appointment. Our Lewiston practice produces restorations that have a precise fit as a result of our CEREC® manufacturing process. This means, with proper hygiene and routine maintenance visits, our patients receive long-term service from their inlays.
Our practice offers porcelain veneers to address cosmetic issues, such as noticeable gaps or significant staining, which may keep you from your ideal smile. With CEREC®, we are able to craft veneers suited for our patients’ individual dental conditions and provide them with same-day treatment. After fabrication, only minor preparation is necessary to ensure an appropriate fit. Dr. Sorensen performs this step prior to securely bonding the veneers to the front of your teeth, creating a seamless aesthetic for your renewed smile.
