Thanks to some truly incredible advances in dental technology, Dr. Shad Ingram is now able to provide you with veneers and crowns, custom fit to your mouth, in one single visit to our office here in Syracuse, Utah.
How is that possible, you ask? A CEREC machine, that’s how.
Standing for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, these machines construct and produce custom ceramic materials right in our office here at VIP Smiles.
This significantly reduces the amount of time you have to wait if you need any sort of ceramic dental procedures performed in order to restore your smile to its former beauty. Instead of coming into VIP Smiles, having molds of your teeth made for crowns, or having teeth measured for veneers, then waiting a few weeks for those products to arrive, it can now all be done in one single appointment.
The way the technology works is actually pretty impressive.
Dr. Shad Ingram begins by taking 3D pictures of your mouth to analyze your ceramic dental needs. Then, the CEREC machine creates a virtual model of your mouth and helps the doctor create a reconstruction or veneer right there next to you in the chair. After the ceramic materials are ready to go, the CEREC machine send the information to a milling machine inside the dental office. It takes between 6 – 15 minutes to create different ceramic materials, based on their difficulty.
Then, Dr. Shad Ingram inserts the ceramics into your mouth and you’re ready to go!
If you think this procedure is right for you and your needs, or you want additional information about the process, then please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office at 801-776-3000. We can’t wait to help you get the best smile possible!
