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