Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Funk Dental, which has protected and perfected smiles as a trusted dentist in Salt Lake City for over 30 years, is pleased to announce that is now offering CEREC porcelain dental restorations that can be completed in a single office visit.
CEREC porcelain dental restorations are designed for people who want a 100% porcelain crown, but without unpleasant-tasting impressions, temporary crowns, or follow-up visits. They’re also suitable for onlays, for patients who want to repair a chipped or discolored tooth, and for emergency situations.
The process, which typically takes about an hour, uses state-of-the-art computer technology to design and mill a precise-fitting tooth-colored restoration. The restoration is then bonded to the affected tooth in order to restore its natural strength, beauty and functionality.
“For years, my patients have complained that getting a crown was very time consuming and inconvenient, because the traditional method involved multiple office visits to complete the process,” commented Dr. Christopher Funk, principal of Funk Dental. “Now with the CEREC porcelain process, along with special computers and advanced software, we can finish the whole process in just a little over an hour. So that means my patients are in and out in about the same time it takes to have their teeth cleaned!”
Added Dr. Funk: “Another great advantage is that there is none of the bad taste associated with the old method of putting in a temporary crown, or the hassle and inconvenience of having patients returning a few days later to put in the new crown. Plus, this new CEREC technology provides a nicer, faster, and more precisely accurate crown than could ever be done before by hand.”
