Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
Perfect teeth, although coveted by millions across the nation, are an attribute that few people can attain without a little cosmetic dentistry work. Fillings, dental crowns and veneers are found in most people’s mouths. Research shows that in the next 10 years, 1.2 billion of these fillings will need to be completely replaced. Dr. Michael Marcus is using the innovative Chairside Economical Restorations Esthetic Ceramic to make fixing a cavity or a bad tooth a one-time event that lasts about as long as a regular appointment.
Normally, a visit to the dentist will result in a follow-up appointment due to the discovery of cavities or other problems that will need to be taken care. This involves taking more time out of the patient’s schedule and a possible, extra cost for the procedure, gas money, etc. Now, with the advanced techniques involved with CEREC, that may no longer be the case.
CEREC is not all that new to the field of cosmetic dentistry, but Marcus Dental Practice makes it something worth experiencing. With the help of specialized tools and machinery, an optical impression of the teeth in need of fillings or dental crowns is taken and processed. Because there is no need for a mold made of goop that you bite into, this image of your teeth is then converted by 3D software to create a virtual model on the computer screen.
Using a separate milling machine found on-site, Dr. Marcus designs the appropriate restoration to exactly fit your needs. This is then created out of a ceramic block that matches the shade of your tooth--all within one appointment, lasting perhaps 10-20 minutes. After a good polish, the needed dental crowns or restoration is securely bonded to the tooth of the patient, with a guarantee that a return trip will not be necessary.
For the dentists and staff at Marcus Dental Practice, cosmetic dentistry has never been easier, more accurate, and effective for their patients. Using CEREC has proven to be fast and economical for both dentist and patient, and the results are reported as overwhelmingly positive.
