The Time Machine for You and Your Smile

Time goes fast and life is short – too short to spend any more of it than necessary in the dental chair no matter how much you like your dentist! But when something goes wrong, like a broken crown, a damaged molar, or even a really bad cavity, it just expected that you are going to have to make some sacrifices for the sake of your smile.

We really don’t like to see our Minneapolis-area patients compromise in any way, especially not when it comes to their smiles. That’s why, over 15 years ago, Dr. Brandenburg invested in a CEREC machine. “What’s that?” you ask? We are more than excited to tell you, because it acts a lot like a time machine for your smile…in more ways than one!

What is CEREC and How Can it Benefit Me?

CEREC is a short and sweet way to say “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” Yes, we agree, CEREC has a much nicer ring to it.

CEREC uses 3D, CAD/ CAM technology to allow Dr. Brandenburg to custom design, color match, craft, and place a beautiful, all ceramic crown or other restoration in one short visit. In fact, it usually only takes about an hour! That means:

  • No return visits
  • No insecure temporaries
  • No extra shots
  • No time wasted

Just a healthy, strong, beautiful smile in one, easy visit. Plus, because the CEREC system uses incredibly precise digital scanning, accurate to within a tenth of a millimeter, you won’t have to deal with gooey, uncomfortable, bulky impressions.

And then there are the health and beauty benefits that almost seem to turn back the clock for your teeth:

  • CEREC restorations look absolutely gorgeous in your smile. Dr. Brandenburg is in full control of how your crowns’ look, from shape to shading. If there is anything you don’t like, we start over!
  • CEREC restorations are perfectly balanced for your bite at your first visit. We make adjustments right here until you feel great.
  • CEREC restorations are completely metal-free. No attractive darkness in your smile and no shifting or cracking.

Now isn’t that a great way to bring your smile back to youthful strength and beauty while saving you valuable time?
