CEREC Technology Enhances Restoration Process for Dr. Jeffrey Zaffo's Carle Place, NY Patients
Patients no longer have to wait several dental appointments for their dental crowns, veneers, and other restorative dental services to be complete. New CEREC technology can create a restoration in as little as fifteen minutes. Rather than waiting for dental restorations to be sent back from a lab, they are created right there in the dental office and CEREC restorations can be placed on a patient's tooth that same day. Dr. Jeffrey Zaffos offers CEREC technology at his office in Carle Place, NY. With CEREC, patients can receive dental restorations in only one visit, without the hassle of temporary crowns and molds.
CEREC technology can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The restorations are made from compressed porcelain, which is stronger than the layered porcelain that’s typically created in a dental lab. A stronger restoration means that patients are left with a more durable and longer lasting restoration. In only one visit, patients have a more resilient restoration without ever needing to be fitted for molds, temporary crowns, or other restorations. The CEREC process is much simpler that traditional prosthetic and restoration methods. All of the decay is removed from a patients smile, and the tooth is reshaped as needed. After spraying a fine white powder on the tooth, a digital image is taken. This image is converted to 3D on the CEREC computer screen. Utilizing this 3D image, Dr. Jeffrey Zaffos creates a patient's restoration right in front of them. There is no waiting and no chance for miscommunications. The result is a fully customized tooth restorative that’s quickly and uniquely created to fit your smile. Once the restoration is finalized on the computer screen, it is milled right there in the office. Curious patients can even watch the as restoration is produced. The milling process only takes fifteen minutes, and the entire procedure only takes about an hour in total—it’s so much more ideal and efficient than coming in for multiple dental visits over the course of a few weeks.
Patients that visit Dr. Jeffrey Zaffos for restorations have been quite happy with the convenience that the CEREC machine has to offer. If you don't want to wait weeks for your restorations, visit Dr. Jeffrey Zaffos and take advantage of the CEREC technology that he provides at his Carle Place, NY practice.
