CEREC Dentistry in Gates & Rochester, NY
Single Visit Dental Restorations
As part of our commitment to high quality cosmetic and general dentistry in Rochester, NY, our office is proud to offer single visit restorations through the use of the CEREC® system. Through this system, we are able to make crowns, veneers, and some bridges right here in our office and place them within a single visit.
Dental restorations are an important component of our general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays, or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between was expected. But CEREC® is able to create quality ceramic restorations within minutes right at our dental office!
CEREC® stands for Ceramic Reconstruction and is comprised of several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools, and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic restorative devices. Our staff will scan the area of your mouth where the restoration will be placed, then design the replacement restoration, and finally the replacement will be milled. This happens all during the same appointment!
The CEREC® Omnicam is designed for powder-free scanning of natural tooth structures and gingiva. Our team will easily place the camera over the area and the scan will start automatically. With the elimination of powder coating, the scans are faster and easier for both our patients and staff. Now full-arch and half-arch scans can be completed more conveniently.
With single-visit dentistry, patients don’t have to worry about wearing uncomfortable temporary crowns and won’t need to come back for a second appointment. If you need a dental restoration, David A. Olivo, DMD will be able to place it in just one visit.
