Comprehensive Dentistry & Cerec
One-appointment crowns, thanks to CEREC, we can provide patients with inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers in only one appointment. The CAD/CAM system has been on the market for a good 30 years now and over 250 scientific studies have confirmed the clinical safety of tried and tested CEREC tooth restorations.
Why Patients Are Choosing CEREC
CEREC is one of the world’s only systems for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in ONE office visit. With the CEREC at Dr. Sunderland’s side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. So, why are patients world wide choosing the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs?
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off, and have a permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
Finest Dental Crown Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration is not just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, or other metals. With CEREC, Dr. Sunderland can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. Also, these materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so Dr. Sunderland can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
A dental crown is tooth-shaped cap that is permanently cemented over a tooth to restore its strength and shape and appearance. Crowns are used to hold weak or broken teeth together to avoid further fracturing. Crowns are also used to support large fillings, attach a bridge, or cover discolored or deformed teeth. Crowns may also be placed over dental implants. Crowns last about five to eight years, and with good oral hygiene crowns may last longer. A crown can help strengthen your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your mouth.
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. Dental bridges are fixed on the supporting teeth, or on the dental implant that has been placed next to the missing teeth.
Restoration of Dental Implants
Dental implants are individual replacement teeth that look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods and smile confidently.
Full Arch Implant Restorations
The All-on-4® treatment concept provides edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on four implants on the day of surgery. This quickly leads to improved patient satisfaction – with regards to function, esthetics, sense, speech, and self-esteem.
