Our intraoral camera system works directly with our CEREC Milling unit. Our doctors will start by taking digital impressions, then sending them to the milling unit. In just a matter of minutes your restoration is created while you wait. No more goopy impression trays, no more multiple trips to our office for your crowns.
After some great improvements over the last few years, digital x-rays now offer exquisite diagnostic clarity with reduced radiation. This radiation exposure can be as much as 70% less. We are able to see enhanced images five times larger and with better detail than ever possible with conventional radiographs. The high-tech changes applied here are truly a great asset.
Our dentists in McMinnville are pleased to offer our patients CEREC restoration services–a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our practice.Whether you just need a filling or require a full crown or veneer, this innovative technology lets you leave All About Smiles with a completely restored smile.
Getting a same day crown or restoration with CEREC is simple. After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, a member of our experienced team will prepare your teeth for restoration, just as you would for a traditional crown or veneer. Your prepared tooth will be coated with a safe, tasteless powder. CEREC then uses a state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression. This digital image replaces the physical impression required in traditional procedures – no more long or uncomfortable waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.
State-of-the-art CAD software allows us to design every precise detail of your restoration with the accuracy you’ve come to expect from All About Smiles. Thanks to this advanced software, we can customize the shape of your restoration to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.
While you wait, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration. About 15 minutes later, your all-ceramic, color-matched restoration is ready for placement. Your new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.
With this state-of-the art diagnostic imaging system, we can take a scan of a patient’s head in less time than it takes to do traditional X-rays. The scan reveals a patient’s bones, providing detailed three-dimensional images from a comfortable seated position rather than the more common reclining position used with conventional scanner.
Our diagnostic capabilities are precise, allowing us to provide dental implants, analyze TMJ anatomy, and prepare for sinus grafting with accuracy, comfort, and assuredness. By taking 360-degree pictures of the head and reconstructing them into incredible 3-D images, we generate a life-like image of the jaw anatomy–all in less than twenty seconds. Using this information, we create a three-dimensional facial mask of the patient revealing the teeth, jaws, and skin that will allow us to appropriately coordinate a treatment plan for any and all oral surgical, orthodontic, cosmetic, orthopedic, or trauma cases. By obtaining a complete picture of the patient’s face and skull, we avoid any surprises at the surgical procedure step.
We are sure that you will appreciate the benefits of this incredible diagnostic tool, which allows us to have the results in three minutes and less radiation than with a two-dimensional x-ray machine.
