Technology in the 21st century have allowed us to offer single visit crown, onlay, or inlay to our patients. Even though CEREC has been around for 25 years with over 35 million restorations milled till date, not a lot of dentists offer these services to their patients. In the past, most of these restorations required taking an impression and fabricating a temporary restoration while the patient anxiously waits for the permanent one to came back from the lab. We have recently changed this with the addition of the CEREC system to our list of services. Using the long accepted process of CAD-CAM technology, we are able to create a virtual tooth using the latest computer technology and then custom design and make a new restoration to restore your tooth back to great condition. These all porcelain restorations look terrific and provide added strength and stability to the remaining tooth structure. While not the best option in all cases, we can use the CEREC system in most cases where larger restorations are needed.
Dr. Marietta and Dr. Grewal are one of the leading users of this technology in the Albuquerque area and are proud to be leading the way by offering our patients one of the most exciting new advances in dentistry.
