As one of Atlanta’s leading restorative and cosmetic dentists, Dr. Jolanda Warren is dedicated to offering her patients the most advanced treatment options through state-of-the-art dental technology. Dr. Warren is one of a few Atlanta dentists to use CEREC same day dentistry technology which can create high quality porcelain dental restorations in a single dental visit.
What Is CEREC
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC technology allows the dentist to perform a number of dental procedures in one simple sitting, whereas before, several visits may have been needed to properly restore teeth with ceramics.
The CEREC system combines CAD/CAM technology with 3D photography to create custom fit porcelain restorations in minutes. The CEREC technology can match the natural color and structure of an actual tooth, making it virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth.
Benefits of Same Day Dentistry
Conventional dentistry requires multiple visits for most dental procedures. With the CEREC technology, Dr. Warren can digitally scan your teeth and design a metal-free restoration with precision in minutes. The esthetic characteristics such as color and luster can be adjusted before the final restoration is permanently secured to your tooth.
With same day dentistry, you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable temporaries, multiple visits and time off work. Dr. Warren can get you in and out of her dentist office quickly, while still delivering high quality results that last.
Same Day Dentistry Procedures CEREC technology is used in a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Crowns
- Inlays & Onlays (Porcelain Fillings)
How Long Does CEREC Take?
On average, a CEREC crown procedure takes approximately 3 hours. There is plenty of downtime while our machines fabricate your crown, during which you can relax in the chair with your pillows and blankets! Although 3 hours may seem like a long time, it is significantly faster than the old method. Rather than going home with a temporary crown and waiting weeks before trying-in the final crown, you will leave our office with your final restoration in one visit!
