At Commack Family Dental, we know your time is valuable. That’s why we’ve invested in CEREC Digital Dentistry that allows for a faster experience when you need crowns, onlays and inlays. Everything is done in one visit, in a little over an hour leaving more time for whatever is important to you. There are no messy impression, temporary crowns or return visits.
CEREC is the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This technology gives Dr. Klein the ability to restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality porcelain material that matches the natural color of your teeth.
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine. Dr. Klein uses a special camera to take video of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where Dr. Klein uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, Dr. Klein bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth.
