CEREC® Crowns and Bridges - Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates

No-Wait Smile Restoration

CEREC® Same-Day Crowns and Bridges

Teeth that have been compromised by cavities or trauma need to have their mass and strength restored in order for you to enjoy pain- and embarrassment-free eating, speaking, and smiling. When decay or damage reaches down to the roots the natural tooth may need to be removed completely and replaced by dental implants. In either case, you’ll need dental crowns to regain a beautiful, healthy, and fully functional smile. If multiple teeth are affected, you may even need a bridge. Crown replacement takes an experienced hand with an eye for esthetics—both qualities for which the doctors here at Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates are well-known. We’re a multidisciplinary practice with a team of specialists and general dentists on staff to serve you. What you won’t need is to wait a long time to have your teeth restored. With our in-house CEREC technology, we don’t send your crowns out to a lab, we can create your crowns or bridges onsite during a single appointment.

Receiving Your New Smile

CEREC, an abbreviation of Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an all-in-one system used to create high-quality, permanent ceramic crowns and bridges. You don’t have to wear temporary restorations while your final ones are being created—a process that can take weeks at practices that don’t have CEREC and must rely on outside labs to create your permanent restorations. You come in for treatment and leave the same day with your permanent crowns or bridges in place, custom-fitted to you for maximum comfort, esthetics, and function. How do we do this? We make an impression of your teeth digitally—no messy putty to bite into—using an intraoral camera. That information is then turned into a virtual blueprint for your crowns or bridges using the system’s design program. The on-board milling machine turns that blueprint into restorations while you watch. We then place your customized final restorations, the benefits of which—restored confidence, smooth speech, greater food choices, and many more—you can begin to enjoy almost immediately!
