Williamstown CEREC Same-Day Restorations
Dental crowns and other custom restorations are often the perfect solutions for correcting dental damage in a strong and aesthetically pleasing manner. However, the multiple appointments required to have them designed and placed can be difficult to work into a busy schedule. Thankfully, Dr. Wael Kassem and his team here in Williamstown, NJ are happy to offer a truly revolutionary alternative: CEREC. This advanced machine allows Dr. Kassem to take impressions, design your new permanent restoration, and place it securely in only one appointment at iSmile Dental Arts. No waiting, no temporaries – patients can walk in with a damaged tooth and leave the very same day with a better, brighter smile.
How does CEREC work?
The first step is to prepare the tooth by removing decay and then capture a precise, detailed image of its structure with a specialized 3D camera – no messy impressions required. Then, the state-of-the-art CEREC machine will enable Dr. Kassem to design your new restoration and then mill the finished product. Patients can even watch this process! Once the restoration is complete, our team will attach it securely and then ensure that its position, placement, and fit are all ideal for the patient. The whole process usually only takes a couple of hours, and you’ll be amazed by how quickly your smile can be transformed for the better.
The benefits of choosing CEREC restorations over more traditional methods include:
- All CEREC restorations are created from natural-looking dental porcelain that’s durable, biocompatible, and completely metal free.
- The need for local anesthetic is greatly minimized.
- In many cases, we can protect more of your natural tooth structure while still revitalizing your oral health.
- Only having to attend a single appointment eliminates the need for a temporary crown, inconvenient return visits, and frustrating wait times.
