Dr. Capers Lee and the Dental Team of Sumter provide CEREC single-visit tooth restorations in Sumter, SC. Restore the beauty and function of your smile in just one day!
CEREC technology restores damaged teeth in a single visit to our Sumter dental office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process
The CEREC process is similar to that of a traditional crown. First, Dr. Lee will remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth and prepare it to make room for a crown. He will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto the tooth and use a special 3D imaging camera to captures a precise image of the tooth. This image is sent to our CEREC milling machine, where CEREC's proprietary software will customize your restoration to blend perfectly with the surrounding teeth. Diamond burs will sculpt your crown from a solid piece of ceramic, creating a restoration that is just as strong as your natural tooth. Finally, Dr. Lee will bond your CEREC restoration to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
Why Choose CEREC?
There are many advantages of choosing CEREC at Dental Team of Sumter over traditional crown technology.
Time: CEREC crowns are made in one visit, so you only need to take time off work once.
Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating the wait required to create a permanent crown off-site.
Aesthetics: CEREC’s strong, tooth-colored ceramic restores your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function, and closely matches the composition of your natural tooth structure.
Strength: Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
Fillings: CEREC material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since these fillings are made out of ceramic, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
At Dental Team of Sumter, you can rest assured that your CEREC restoration will last for years because of Dr. Lee’s extensive experience. We’ll treat you like family, with the same care, compassion, and clinical excellence that we’d expect for ourselves.
