In the last century, dental technology has progressed leaps and bounds, right alongside other types of technology we enjoy the benefits of. While we may seem to talk a lot about dental technology, we are investing in our office to be able to provide you with the best dental treatment available.
CAD/CAM is only one technology we use to provide you with the best dental care possible. The use of computer-aided design and manufacturing allows us to make a porcelain restoration in a matter of minutes that will fit your tooth more perfectly than any restoration made by hand could do.
The use of immediate restorations prevents one of the biggest problems caused by having to wait two or more weeks for a dental restoration: shifting teeth. As soon as you lose a tooth or a portion of a tooth, your teeth may begin to shift and move into the new space provided. This is a good reason to have damaged teeth repaired as soon as you notice the damage.
There are also numerous sensitivity issues caused by having to use a temporary restoration while waiting two or three weeks for a traditional lab made crown to be ready to cement. CERAC CAD/CAM restorations are commentated and sealed the same day the tooth is prepared thus reducing trauma to the tooth by minimizing exposure of the prepared tooth to the oral fluids and foods.
If you have a broken or damaged tooth, don’t hesitate to have it repaired. Please contact cosmetic dentists Dr. LeSueur and Dr. Dodaro today to schedule your appointment, serving patients in Phoenix and from the surrounding areas of Tempe, Mesa, and Scottsdale, Arizona.
