Dr. Kenneth Woo & Associates is now offering CEREC, a revolutionary CAD/CAM technology that enables us to create high-quality, beautiful dental crowns right in the office. This new system relies on digital imaging to determine the specs of the crown, thus eliminating the need to take impressions and wait for weeks to have the lab complete it.
SAME DAY CROWNS
With CEREC, there are no more messy impressions and fewer dental visits.
WHAT IS CEREC?
CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) is a state-of-the-art system used to create porcelain tooth restorations such as crowns, bridges, veneers, onlays and inlays in a single visit. CEREC restorations are created right in our office.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CEREC?
Faster: CEREC crowns, veneers, bridges and onlays/inlays can be created in a single visit, a time saving convenience.
Stronger: Restorations created with our CEREC system are not only made quickly, they are much stronger. The CEREC system mills restorations out of a single unit of porcelain making them much more resistant to wear and tear. Traditional crowns are made with a process of layering and pressing composite materials.
Biocompatible: CEREC uses nonmetal, biocompatible materials for a healthier restoration.
Beautiful and natural looking: We use a revolutionary e.max material that mimics nature with its opalescence and transparency, much like the natural prisms in tooth enamel.
