South End Smiles: Capitalizing on Advanced Technology
SouthEnd Dentistry, also known as South End Smiles, is a premiere dental practice that incorporates cutting-edge technologies into its practice, including Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
One of the unique services offered by SouthEnd Dentistry is Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, otherwise known as CEREC. CEREC is the development of advanced technology used to make repairing a damaged tooth faster and less painful. The result of over two decades of clinical research, CEREC utilizes natural colored ceramic filling to repair damaged teeth in a manner that can be completed during a single appointment and will not cause any discomfort to the patient.
CEREC offers many benefits to a patient, says Dr. Picot of SouthEnd Dentistry. First, it does not involve the use of any metals so a smile will not be tainted by the image of silver or gold nor will one experience health concerns in the future due to the presence of metals. Second, it avoids the necessity of a second dentist trip, saving people time and energy. As enjoyable and relaxing an experience as SouthEnd Dentistry is, Dr. Picot understands patients would like to spend as less time in the dentist's chair as possible. Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing allow Dr. Picot to scan an image of the damaged tooth, design a digital image of the repair, and then construct that repair using natural colored ceramic filling. This avoids the necessity of taking an impression and then sending it into the lab for a construction.
CEREC is just one of the many innovative solutions that Dr. Picot and the rest of the dentists at SouthEnd Dentistry have to offer!
