What are Dental Restorations?

You’ll hear this term used a lot in dentistry, and it refers to any dental prosthetic that restores the form, function, and aesthetics of your smile. Dental restorations we can create with CEREC same-visit dentistry are:

  • Dental crowns—Used on a broken or damaged tooth to restore chewing function.
  • Bridges—Used to replace one or more missing teeth from the same area of your mouth.
  • Inlays and onlays—Used when you have too much tooth damage for a filling, but not enough to warrant a dental crown.
  • Veneers—Used to conceal smile flaws like chipped or broken teeth, mild tooth misalignments, and severe staining or discoloration.

How CEREC Technology Works at our Eagan, MN Office

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Using CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Skare creates same-day dental restorations in Eagan, MN during a single appointment, without sending models and measurements to an outside dental lab.

You don’t have to wait two weeks to get your new dental restoration. During the procedure, Dr. Skare uses digital technology to scan your teeth instead of taking uncomfortable impressions. He designs your CEREC dental crown entirely using CAD/CAM software to render a 3-D virtual model of the tooth or teeth he's addressing.

The specifications are sent to a milling machine in our dental office that works like a 3-D printer. If you like, you can watch as the technology produces your new restoration from a ceramic block. It’s quite a fascinating process!

Another benefit is that planning your dental crown, bridge, inlay, onlay, or veneer with this level of accuracy results in a comfortable, precision fit, and a realistic appearance.

Benefits of Choosing CEREC Dentistry

Woman at dental exam for CEREC dental crowns in Eagan MNCEREC same-visit technology is a significant breakthrough in modern dentistry. In the past Eagan, MN dentists sent all their restorations to an outside dental lab to be fabricated, a process that takes weeks to complete. Patients would be sent home with a temporary and return for a second appointment when their permanent dental crown or bridge was ready.

The whole CEREC process takes only a couple of hours from start to finish. There’s no temporary to deal with, and you don’t have to worry about coming back for another appointment weeks away.

Aside from their same-visit convenience, CEREC dental crowns and restorations in Eagan, MN look and feel like your natural teeth. Some dental crowns show a dark metal line around the gums, but since we fabricate CEREC restorations from metal-free porcelain, they blend seamlessly with your smile.
