Tooth restoration used to be a process that required two or more visits to complete. Dr. David Earnest and the Comal Dental team would discover the decay or damage, recommend a treatment using porcelain crowns, inlays or onlays, and you’d schedule a second visit to prepare the tooth and create an impression. Then, you’d wait with a temporary, plastic restoration that tended to be less comfortable and was easily damaged or dislodged. Finally, your permanent restoration arrived, and you had to schedule another appointment to have it placed. The whole process seemed to take an excessive amount of time and money. You couldn’t help but thinking there had to be an easier way to repair your broken smile. Thanks to CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), there is. CEREC offers you the ability to have your tooth prepared and restored in just one visit.
