Creates Smiles by Taking Out Metal, Fixing Crooked Teeth, and Filling in the Gaps.

NOW YOU CAN SHOW YOUR SUCCESS. SOCIALLY AND AT WORK.

Successful people tend to smile a lot. It is in this way that their success, both professionally and in their private lives is best demonstrated.

People whose teeth are healthy and attractive feel more confident and aware of their own vitality. If you want to improve your quality of life then read on.

HOW ARE WE ABLE TO PRODUCE AND FIX PRECISE DENTAL RESTORATIONS IN JUST ONE VISIT, WITH THIS INCREDIBLE, COMPACT MACHINE?

"Repairing" teeth can be extremely complicated with various impressions and temporary fillings taking a considerable time. Now this can simply be achieved in just one visit, and in less than one hour.

HOW DOES THE CEREC COMPUTER RESTORATION SYSTEM WORK?

After your tooth is prepared, it is scanned with an electronic camera that allows you to see the image on a video screen. The restoration is designed from this scan and then automatically milled out from a solid ceramic block. This is accomplished so precisely that it can be accurately fitted and durably bonded to the prepared cavity. All done!

THE RESTORATION MATERIAL: NATURAL CERAMIC. DURABLE AND ATTRACTIVE. JUST LIKE REAL ENAMEL.

CEREC restorations are made from ceramic -- a natural substance that is particularly compatible with the body. The CEREC ceramic has the same characteristics as normal, healthy, dental enamel.

This means it is similarly hard wearing -- for example when undergoing the daily grinding of food. Nor is it affected by hot or cold -- coffee or ice-cream.

Furthermore, the ceramic is so smooth that bacteria do not stand a chance.

And one will not experience a strange metallic taste or suffer effects from electrical currents, which can be created when two different metals are located in neighboring teeth.

Computer inlays inserted into the tooth.

Onlays and partial crowns -- if one or more cusps of your teeth are missing or have to be replaced.

Veneers -- for the restoration of decayed or broken front teeth.

CEREC CONSERVES THE ORIGINAL ENAMEL AND THEREFORE THE RESTORATION WILL LAST A LONG TIME.

CEREC restorations are almost as strong as dental enamel -- the hardest of all materials in the human body. This strength and durability comes from the ceramic material and also the very careful bonding of the restoration of the tooth.

Yet this is not enough:

We always try to conserve as much of the original dental material as possible. The CEREC method is ideal for this. A CEREC restoration, bonded firmly and durably, gives your teeth great stability. This means that we can frequently dispense with the need to have a full crown. This has been proven time and time again for over a decade, in all restorations all over the world.

THIS IS THE BEST LONG TERM SOLUTION FOR YOUR TEETH.

The other porcelain crowns of most dentist offices are metal with porcelain fused on top of the metal. Those were the best for the time. The problem with them is over the years the metals "bleed" and change the color of the tooth, as well as, giving you a metal taste ALL THE TIME. Imagine eating a big juicy steak and tasting metal. Or you could see a dentist with the CEREC machine and taste nothing but the steak.

If the metal continues to "bleed" the crown would weaken to the point where it could break or chip off parts of the porcelain. That only helps showing off your METAL MOUTH.

This may not happen to you for at least a couple of years, but do you want to have a crown redone every 5 years (by the way that is how often most insurance companies cover crowns)? Think about paying out $200-$300 every 5 years, or you could get one crown for life.

THE CEREC NOT ONLY TAKES OUT THE METAL IT ALSO STRAIGHTEN YOUR SMILE.

We can fill in the gaps between your teeth, straighten out crooked teeth, and make you smile more.

There are other choices- DON'T SMILE.

EVEN UNDER CLOSE INSPECTION THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR TOOTH AND YOUR NEW RESTORATION.

Self-confidence and inner composure. These are things we would all like to have. But many people suffer with a blemished appearance, often due to their teeth. CEREC restorations will brighten up your life, and your self-confidence will be restored. We are able to use ceramic materials that match your natural tooth in color and appearance, so that your repaired teeth appear as originals.
