Dr. Snow has been CEREC certified since 1995. CEREC® by Sirona Dental Systems is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC® at Dr. Snow’s side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! For you, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. That's why thousands of people worldwide are choosing the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off, and have a permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC®, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
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. The materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth structure as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
