Everyone deserves a smile to be proud of. Fortunately, restoring a brighter smile is faster and easier than ever before with CEREC crowns. In a one-day restorative treatment, you can achieve whiter, blemish-free teeth in a single dentist visit. Under the guidance and expertise of Dr. Douglas G. Genninger, we provide painless and effective restorative care.

Why Choose CEREC

CEREC is an abbreviation for chairside economical restorations of esthetic ceramic and, as the name implies, is a minimal restorative procedure for the surface of your teeth. Unlike traditional crowns, CEREC crowns are fitted and affixed in a single visit, no temporaries needed. They consist of high-tech ceramic composites, using no metal materials whatsoever. As a result, they can be color-corrected to match your natural teeth. With regular brushing and proper care, the crowns can last for years.

CEREC devices utilize computer assisted design (CAD) to construct perfect replicas of your natural teeth in a matter of minutes. Milled from a solid ceramic block, your new tooth comes to life right before your eyes–yes, you can actually watch the device in action.

One Simple Procedure

When you schedule an appointment, we can walk you through the entire procedure step-by-step, addressing any concerns you may have. However, the process is relatively simple:

  1. We take x-rays and images of your teeth to determine if a crown is needed.
  2. We create a virtual model of your tooth to mold your new crown for a perfect fit.
  3. Your tooth is milled on-site using high-grade ceramic material.
  4. After some finishing touches, Dr. Genninger secures the crown in place.

And that’s all there is to regaining your perfect smile in a single visit.
