CAD/CAM Dentistry with the Cerec Machine

The staff of Alta Mesa Family Dentistry strives to stay on the cutting edge of new technology. Now we can make beautiful, precise, and completely realistic porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays (fillings) right in our office with a Cerec machine. By Incorporating high tech CAD/CAM technology, an infrared camera takes an incredibly detailed picture of your tooth after the old filling has been removed, translates the picture into a 3D image on a computer, and crafts the crown or other restoration on an in-house milling machine. In about ten minutes, a perfectly accurate restoration crafted from beautiful porcelain is ready to be bonded with cement, and the entire process takes less than one-hour from beginning to end. No more temporary inlays, imperfect restorations, or second visits!

Perfect Porcelain Restorations

Cerec (short for ceramic reconstruction) creates absolutely perfect porcelain restorations-from crowns to inlays to onlays-in just one office visit. No more temporaries or follow-up appointments! Using a high tech 3D infrared camera and CAD/CAM technology CAD/CAM, a precise imageis created of your tooth once the old filling or crown is removed. The information is then sent to a machine that mills the restoration with a type of porcelain thatmimics human enamel-to the perfect size and shape. Dr. Kroll then cements the restoration in place and you're done, leaving the office with beautiful, strong, and lifelike ceramic fillings and crowns that will last a lifetime-and no more unsightly metals!
