If you need a dental crown, dental inlay or onlay, or dental veneer, Dr. Travis E. Hampton will use CEREC® in Covington, Georgia. Using CEREC technology, our dentist can produce and place dental restorations in just one appointment. Traditionally, dental restorations take about two weeks to be constructed in a dental lab. Because CEREC restorations are ready for placement in one appointment, temporary restorations are not needed.
To produce a CEREC restoration, our dentist will first use a digital scanner to take a 3D image of the tooth and those around it. Goopy traditional impressions are not needed. CEREC software helps our dentist navigate these images. With CEREC, designing a dental restoration is simple. The software will analyze the image and propose excellent restoration designs. From design, our dentist will use a grinding or milling machine to produce a dental restoration in just minutes. The restoration will be durable, safe, and aesthetic. When the dental restoration is complete, our dentist will place it in your mouth to check the fit and color. If needed, adjustments are made. Then, the dental restoration is permanently cemented in place and our dentist will make any final adjustments.
We encourage you to contact Alcovy Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to learn more about CEREC restorations and to schedule your next appointment with our dentist.
