Introducing the CEREC™ Digital Impression Solution for Same-Day Dentistry – Modern Dentistry that Fits Your Busy Lifestyle
If you’ve ever needed a permanent crown put on one of your teeth, you know it usually takes more than one appointment, more than one shot of anesthetic, and more than a little bit of patience while you wear a temporary crown for 2+weeks. At Tatum Dentistry we believe our patients deserve modern dentistry that fits their busy lifestyles. We can now provide Same Day crowns through Patient-Focused Technology!
Let’s look at the facts – very few people have that perfect smile, without any decay or fillings – and you may even see a filling or two in your own mouth. Fillings are just that … they “fill” a void left from the removal of the decay in the tooth. Previously, most fillings were made from metal material (usually amalgam), which over time can weaken the tooth structure, allow additional decay to form around/under it, or even fail all together. Most patients find their metal fillings need to be replaced after a period of 10 years or so.
Using the CEREC technology to offer our patients Crowns-In-An-Hour, Dr. Tatum and her team are able to restore any tooth that is decayed, weakened, broken, etc. to its natural strength and beauty – using all-ceramic materials which are tooth-colored and milled right in our office. The other benefit to our patients at Tatum Dentistry – this process is accomplished without temporaries or additional visits and their treatment is completed in a single visit, in about an hour!
The CEREC process utilizes a digital optical impression to provide same day dental restorations without temporary crowns.
