To provide natural looking ceramic restorations in a single visit, Dr. Simmons uses the revolutionary CEREC® system. Since crowns and onlays can be created while you wait, there is no need for a second visit. You not only save time, but also the trouble of living with a temporary crown or onlay.
Besides being faster, the CEREC® process is much less invasive and more comfortable. Dr. Simmons uses a special infrared camera to make an image of the treatment area, instead of making a mold. He can then use a proprietary software program on a computer linked to the CEREC® milling machine to design a perfectly matching ceramic crown or onlay that is ready to place as soon as it’s finished. Another advantage is that Dr. Simmons is in charge of the whole process, instead of sending the fabrication job to an off-site dental lab.
