Restore Your Smile, Keep Your Schedule

CEREC technology allows us to create strong, customized, tooth-colored ceramic restorations right here in the office, usually within a single appointment.  No temporary or second visit is required and the aesthetics are beautiful.

In the course of one visit, we can prepare your damaged tooth, create an optical impression of the tooth, and use CEREC to design and milla precision restoration, which is then permanently bonded to your tooth.  No mess, no discomfort, no wait.  Get the smile you want and get back to your life.  We know you’ve got more important things to do.

CEREC restorations are not available for all teeth or situations.  Please contact us for an appointment if you are interested in CEREC restorations.


The Purpose of Dental Crowns

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression is taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a 1 Visit Crown permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish. 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, Napa Dentist Dr. Burk 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 your dentist can save as much healthy tooth structure and tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
