Single Visit Dentistry (CEREC®)

CEREC to the Rescue to Provide Same-Day Dentistry

Our patients benefit from single-visit restorations including crowns, inlays & onlays, white fillings and veneers using a very high-tech piece of dental equipment called CEREC.

CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction and represents a process where we digitally scan the area of your mouth where the dental restoration will be placed, designing a replacement restoration right there, and finally milling the final restoration during the same appointment.

Our patients don't have to walk around with bulky and uncomfortable temporary crowns and won't have to come back for a second appointment for the final fitment and placement of the dental restoration. If you are in need of a dental restoration, chances are CEREC can provide it in just one visit. We invite you to call our dental office at (209) 522-8800 or schedule online now and let us answer that question right then and there!

Single Visit Restorations Via CEREC

Crowns

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

CEREC crowns are the preferred dental restoration for damaged teeth or after a root canal or dental implant placement. CEREC crowns are color matched to blend in perfectly with surrounding teeth.

Inlays & Onlays

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

For when a filling might ruin tooth structure integrity but a crown is unnecessary a CEREC inlay or onlay is the perfect dental restoration to restore a tooths functionality yet keep a natural appearance.

White Fillings

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

High-strength fillings and color matched to the tooth the dental restoration is being placed in. CEREC retain a natural biting surface that is otherwise lost in some typical filling methods.

Veneers

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

CEREC veneers are created to perfectly fit over a prepared tooth that was originally damaged or discolored. The final product is a fully functional, color-matched dental restoration ready for use.

Root Canals

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

There’s no significant downside to a patient having to wait for a second visit to have a crown placed, though they will have to make a special effort not to chew with the tooth that has been treated. Even so, the sooner the crown can be placed the better.

How CEREC Works


Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

We use a highly-sensitive precision wand to digitally scan the section of your mouth where a dental restoration will be placed. As the wand scans the area, it builds a virtual model of your mouth on a screen right in front of your eyes. You and Dr. Hillock can fine-tune the area until the virtual model represents your mouth exactly.

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

Once the digital model of the dental restoration area have been finished, Dr. Hillock will digitally design a restoration right there on the screen. It will be designed to be fully functional and fit exactly in the area where it needs to be place.

Single Visit Dentistry Modesto

From there, this digital restoration will be sent to a milling machine where a color-matched block of porcelain will be precisely milled into the final restoration.

This restoration is NOT a temporary, but rather the same restoration we expect to receive from a dental lab. The final restoration is test-fitted to the area and any final adjustments are made before securely bonding the restoration to the tooth.

You will walk out of our office wearing the final restoration in a single dental visit. Single appointment dentistry is not too good to be true! Call us at (209) 522-8800 or schedule online now to see what CEREC can do for your specific situation.
