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.
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 at a lab. A ceramic block matching your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine and the restoration is finished. All that's left is ensuring proper fit, polishing and bonding. Bottom line: The 3-D CEREC method is an advanced and economical technology that dental professionals and patients alike appreciate.
