CEREC – (CERamic REConstruction)
Cos Cob - Greenwich Dentist, Christine L. Tierney, D.M.D. is pleased to offer the most convenient, easy and aesthetically pleasing tooth-colored fillings and crowns made in the office with a single visit using state of the art CEREC technology. We can provide a great looking smile to you in one appointment utilizing metal-free, biocompatible, natural looking ceramic material. All ceramic, tooth-colored restorations mean no more crowns with black margins or ugly silver fillings causing discolored smiles. The restoration is natural-looking, non- allergenic, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. CEREC is a shining example of recent advances in the dental profession and Dr. Tierney is proud to be among the first in the Greenwich area to offer her patients this new approach to tooth restoration.
Taking an impression obtained with a specialized digital camera is quick and easy, eliminating the need for the traditional runny impression material used in bulky trays. A computer generated crown design is customized for the perfect fit and then is milled right in our office, thus enabling us to complete a crown, onlay or veneer in a single appointment. There’s no need for a temporary crown or a return visit. From tooth preparation to placement and bonding, you can have your smile restored in a short time and move on to more important things in life. And smile on your way!
Patients who have had the CEREC experience, appreciate the attractive quality of the final result and the time-saving approach. Advanced bonding techniques and precise restoration design allow Dr. Tierney to preserve more of the healthy tooth while creating a stronger, more natural result.
