Whitinsville Updates Your Smile in One Visit With CEREC Technology for Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays

Over the years, technology has steadily advanced, and the dentists at Whitinsville Family Dentistry have made it a point to keep up. One piece of modern technology, CEREC, offers us the ability to assess, create, and place your ceramic crowns, inlays, and onlays in just one visit to our Whitinsville dental office. Instead of visiting us multiple times and waiting a couple of weeks to receive your permanent restorations, CEREC one-visit crowns, inlays, and onlays give you the flexibility to choose to do it all in one trip to the dentist.

How does CEREC work?

Dr. Cnossen and Dr. Tubo use revolutionary CEREC 3D technology to produce attractive, durable, and permanent all-ceramic crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single visit. How does it work? Instead of taking a runny impression and putting a temporary crown on your tooth for weeks or months, we take a 3D picture of your tooth with our special camera and design the permanent crown on the computer while you relax with your favorite book or watch some TV. The computer then custom-mills your permanent crown from an incredibly strong and esthetically pleasing ceramic. In about 20 minutes, your crown is ready for an esthetic try-in, polishing, and permanent bonding.

This is by far one of our patients’ favorite pieces of technology in the office, and not just because it’s high tech and fun to watch. It will save you time, free you from the stress of impressions and temporary crowns, and provide a very strong, amazingly natural-looking impression.

What about CEREC inlays and onlays?

You might have a big filling that needs replacement. Do you have to get a full crown? Not necessarily. We may be able to provide you with a more conservative option. Inlays and onlays can replace large parts of broken or decayed teeth without having to grind the whole outside of the tooth away. They fit on the tooth much like a filling, but since they are created at our Whitinsville dental office with CEREC technology, they will be made outside of your mouth and require only one appointment. Inlays and onlays are highly esthetic, metal-free, strong, and conservative. Not every situation is right for an inlay or onlay, but our dentists will assess your problem and determine the best solution for you.

Contact us to schedule a consultation at Whitinsville Family Dentistry. We’ll help you determine if a CEREC one-visit crown is right for you. We give families in Uxbridge, Northbridge, Grafton, Douglas, and surrounding areas quality dental care and personalized service for one-of-a-kind smiles.
