Teeth Replacement in Multnomah County
A complete smile is important for maintaining the many functions we often take for granted, such as eating and speaking comfortably. If left untreated, teeth that are broken or decaying put the health of neighboring dental structure at risk. CEREC provides patients with an efficient way to replace the crown structure and improve the bite. Additionally, we offer a few options for differing crowns to give patients their desired blend between durability and aesthetic quality.
What is CEREC?
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) is a method of advanced dentistry that greatly improves the efficiency of services dentist can provide for patients. CEREC allows our team to generate digital impressions, translate those blueprints into a digital image, and fabricate a metal-free, highly-accurate crown.
Crowns crafted with CEREC are milled from a single block of ceramic rather than pressed, preserving the integrity and durability of the original structure.
Same-Day Dental Services
The largest benefit CEREC provides is eliminating the need for returning to the office for a crown placement after receiving care for a tooth.
Root canal therapy is a necessary procedure to maintain optimal oral health. Traditionally, decay that has reached the nerves of a tooth requires treatment right away, warranting the need for a temporary while a final restoration is crafted. Temporaries are unreliable and can leave the tooth susceptible to reinfection.
By contrast, CEREC allows for our Portland dentist to address a root canal and provide same-day crown placement immediately after. Patients can walk away with their final crown after just one appointment.
Our goal is to get patients out of pain and on to better health. We do this by administering state-of-the-art care using advanced technology. Schedule an appointment with Dr. David Carothers and receive same-day dental services in Portland with CEREC technology.
We offer a five-year warranty on fillings and crowns. Patients must visit our practice every six months for routine care to ensure restorations are in good-standing and oral health is optimal to be eligible for warranty.
