CEREC One Appointment Crowns
Bellevue dentist, Dr. James Austin was one of the first dentists to offer this technology on the Eastside. He has been using CEREC since 1999. Over the years he has taken many advanced CEREC training classes to enhance his 14 years of clinical experience. Because of his experience level, Sirona Dental, the developers of the CEREC technology asked Dr. Austin to demonstrate the CEREC technology to new potential users. CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world’s first system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC technology and Family Dental Care of Bellevue, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, beautiful all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer made of the finest porcelain! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less chair time, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

CEREC CROWNS SAVE YOU TIME!
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary removed (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on. With a CEREC restoration these two visits are completed in a single appointment.
CEREC CROWNS SAVE TOOTH ENAMEL!
A CEREC restoration isn’t just convenient; it is also healthy for your tooth. With CEREC, our doctors can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. This allows for decreased stresses in your tooth. Also, the porcelain materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so Dr. Austin and Dr. Galloway are able to save considerably more tooth structure than is possible with a traditional crown preparation. Recent studies have shown that the more enamel a dentist removes the weaker the tooth becomes. In fact a CEREC restored tooth is approximately 18% stronger than a tooth with a traditional crown.
Our doctors can use CEREC for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC is capable of producing any type of single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers. Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Enhance it with CEREC.
