Save Time and Money with CEREC!

Thu, May 2nd, 2019

If you have extra time and money for dental work, then this may not be the blog for you. On the other hand, if you’re in the majority of patients trying to squeeze in quality care with savings, well then, you’ve come to the right place to learn how CEREC can help you accomplish more for less.

Traditionally, custom restorations meant multiple visits spread out over weeks. These treatment plans produced wonderful results, but they required a visit to our office to take impressions, followed by two or more weeks of waiting for the lab, a trip back to our offices, etc., etc., etc. The point is, there was room for improvement in the custom restoration process, and CEREC has provided it all! 

Time-Saving Technology

CEREC technology allows our office to scan your tooth to create a 3D image. Using this image, we can design a custom restoration comparable in quality to traditional restorations provided by outside labs. The CEREC machine is used to mill your custom crown, on-lay or inlay in office. There is no need to schedule a follow-up appointment or put up with temporaries while you wait for your permanent restoration. It’s clear to see how CEREC technology saves you time, but how can it save you money?

Saving Money Is In The Name 

CEREC stands for "Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics." Why economic? A visit to the dentist takes time. Time off from work can cost money, and traditional restoration treatment means double the time off of work. You’re also paying in gas and travel time to our office. If there is an issue with a restoration provided by an outside lab, that’s more time, more inconvenience and more money out of your pocket.  The 3D scan reduces the likelihood of needed changes to your restoration. The chairside of CEREC means we can make adjustments if needed, while you wait, without scheduling a follow-up appointment.

It’s High Time for High Tech!

If you have been putting off needed dental restorations because of a concern of time or money, wait no longer. CEREC technology addresses your needs providing quality results. Our in-office porcelain restorations take just a day to offer strong, healthy teeth you can enjoy for years. Curious how CEREC can help you? Call Brockport Smiles today to learn more!
