Wouldn’t it be great if you could walk into your dentist’s office in Milton-Freewater and walk out with a brand new crown? Well now, you can. Thanks to 21st century modern dentistry, same day dentistry is possible and best of all; it won’t cost you a small fortune.
CEREC® is a remarkable chairside procedure that is completed in a single dental appointment. In less than two hours, you can have a brand new crown that would normally take three visits to complete. CEREC is affordable because you only need one appointment, not three.
What are CEREC® Restorations?
Short for CEramic REConstruction or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, CEREC® is made from biocompatible dental materials and is less invasive than conventional crowns.
Conventional crowns require more removal of your natural tooth. CEREC® metal free restorations are perfect for inlays, onlays, crowns, and dental bridges. Dentists also use CEREC® for dental implants.
How CEREC® Restorations Works
The team from 4 Seasons Dental uses CAD/CAM or 3D photography technology to design your new virtual restoration. This means no more goopy and messy impressions that often make you feel like you want to gag.
When your dentist in Milton-Freewater is satisfied with the results, the images are sent to the in house milling machine. The unit cuts and shapes the biocompatible materials into a new restoration while you are waiting.
After your crown or crowns are ready, Dr. Schroeder will check for fit and color before cementing into place. CEREC® looks and feels as natural as your own teeth and is just as strong as conventional dental crowns.

Are CEREC® Restorations Too Good to Be True?
While some may think that CEREC® dental restorations are too good to be true, that couldn’t be further from the truth according to 4 Seasons Dental.
One of the biggest advantages of CEREC® restorations are tooth preservation. Unlike traditional dental crowns, which require quite a bit of tooth removal, CEREC® restorations require less drilling. Less drilling means you get to keep more of your natural tooth.
CEREC® is also matched to the rest of the natural tooth. Conventional crowns are hard to match. Conventional porcelain to metal crowns for example will always have a black line at the top. CEREC® crowns blend with the rest of the tooth. The only one who will know you have a dental crown are you and Dr. Schroeder.
