CEREC Rocks!

November 13, 2013

Filed under: Cerec — admin @ 9:57 am

On the Sirona blog (Maker of CEREC one-visit crown technology) there’s a fun article about the lead singer of a popular band in Finland who broke her tooth while on concert.

Paula Vesala posted this picture right before the treatment on the band’s Facebook page!

Of course, a broken tooth could have a significantly negative impact on her singing.

Did they have to cancel the tour?

No!

A CEREC dentist was attending the show.

Dr. Marko Ahonen (a CEREC dentist from Finland) promised to fix the problem on Sunday night. The whole case took only three hours on Sunday evening.

The result: A perfect tooth done within a highly effective procedure and of course, a satisfied patient: “WOW, with his CEREC computer, Marko provided me with a whole new permanent tooth in just three hours! No need for several visits and no need for a temporary tooth!”

Whether you enjoy eating out at a holiday party or enjoy dinner with your family at home this holiday season, a broken tooth can really put a damper on the festivities.

Luckily, advances in dentistry have made it easier to fix a broken or fractured tooth in one dental visit.

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Translated, it means that Dr. Gasper can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth.

CEREC uses the most advanced dental technology, including 3D imaging and CAD/CAM to create a crown. In layman’s terms, it is a computer-designed restoration for your tooth. The whole procedure can be completed in one visit.

In the mean time, enjoy the fantastic food while spending the holidays with your family and friends… and give Dr. Gasper a call at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design at 719-599-0700 should you have a dental emergency.

What is a CEREC Dentist and How Can Dr. Gasper Help You?

These products allow Dr. Gasper to produce easily ceramic dental restorations, while he uses several computer assisted technologies.

These highly innovative technologies include CAD/CAM or 3D Photography for example.

The best thing about CEREC, is that the teeth of the patient can be restored through a single visit to the dentist. A few years ago, a patient had to visit the dentist 3 or 4 or even more times in order to perform teeth restoration.  The technology saves a lot of time for the dental staff, but it also saves a lot of money for the patient.

A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, your dentist can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.
