Westchester, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
Area residents with old metal restorations who want to replace filling material due to cracks or other problems can now look to leading dentist in Westchester, CA, Dr. Glen L. Sperbeck, for faster and improved filling creation and placement thanks to his use of CEREC technology. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC, allows Dr. Sperbeck to create ceramic restorations from computer generated three dimensional models in less time, with less discomfort, and for less cost than standard restoration procedures, making it easier than ever for people to get the beautiful smiles they have always wanted.
Traditional fillings made from silver are actually not pure silver, but rather an amalgam of silver with mercury together. Because of this, dentists often simply call them amalgam fillings or amalgam restorations. The mercury and silver metals contract and expand when exposed to changing food and beverage temperatures like ice cold water or piping hot coffee. Over a period of years, the continual contractions and expansions lead to cracks in the fillings, and it is in these cracks in which bacteria can grow and develop further into the teeth, causing decay if not properly addressed. One way to save teeth is to replace filling material with newer, porcelain restorations that are not subject to the same reactions as those made of metal.
In addition to being resistant to damage due to temperature changes, porcelain fillings and crowns give patients a more pleasing and natural cosmetic appearance like that of natural teeth. Dr. Sperbeck has chosen CEREC because of the affordability and efficiency of the combined technology and process. As a leading dentist in Westchester, CA, he enjoys the ability to provide new restorations to residents in less time and for less cost than ever before. Full 3D images can be taken in less than a couple of minutes and are then transferred to the system which utilizes CAD/CAM applications to make any refinements necessary before processing the actual milling of the inlay, onlay, or crown. The milling is completed onsite in less than 20 minutes, and sometimes in as little as only 10 minutes. Dr. Sperbeck then polishes the milled restoration and is able to place it immediately so that the patient can leave with a completed treatment in only one office visit.
