Hi there, Dr. Ashish Patel to talk to you today about one of my favorite pieces of technology in the office– it’s the CEREC technology. CEREC is the crown-in-one-hour technology.
Now the old-fashioned way of doing crowns was that you’d break a tooth, we’d come in, we’d prepared you for a crown, we’d take an impression and then we’d put a temporary on that and then you’d had to go home and wait 2 or 3 weeks and then come back and get the permanent. Now CEREC technology allows us to scan in the tooth and make a crown digitally without any impressions at all, all within about an hour.
This technology has been around for a long time, as a matter of fact has been in our office for over 16 years. It’s absolutely beautiful; it comes in all kinds of different shades. I’d say probably about 98% of our crowns are done in-house with the CEREC technology.
So if you’re interested in learning more about our technology, please give our office a call at 770-321-5558.
