What Makes Six Month Smiles So Revolutionary?
The revolutionary CEREC® system enables Dr. Murphy to create and place crowns, inlays and onlays in just ONE office visit, so you spend less time in the dental chair! CEREC even eliminates the need for plastic temporaries while your restorations are sent off to a lab, a process that can take weeks. With CEREC, you can get the dental treatment you need, then get back to your busy life.
At the beginning of your CEREC appointment, Dr. Murphy and our team will prepare your tooth and take a photo of it with our digital camera. CEREC's imaging software will then create a photorealistic 3D model of your restoration on our computer screen—all without that messy, uncomfortable impression tray.
CEREC restorations are made of a biocompatible ceramic material that can be adjusted to match the natural color of your other healthy teeth. We'll insert a block of the ceramic material into our onsite milling unit, which constructs your restoration according to the exact specifications outlined by the virtual model. After only 15 minutes or so, your restoration will be ready to be placed!
