Even as little as 35 years ago, restoring teeth could be a long and drawn out process, but now thanks to modern dentistry technology and your dentist in Orange County, you can have a beautiful smile in a single dental appointment with Dr. Peter Hagen.
Dr. Hagen truly is a pioneer when it comes to cosmetic dental techniques and was one of the first dentists in the OC to be trained using the CEREC System. As a member of the Academy of Computerized Dentistry in North America, Dr. Hagen can give you that toothy grin that you have always dreamed about using the CEREC system and the CAD-CAM computer.
These days you do not have to deal with temporary fillings or crowns while your new smile is sent to the lab. Thanks to 21st century cosmetic dentistry and the CEREC System you can have your old fillings replaced, that crack in your front tooth repaired or that annoying cavity filled with long-lasting ceramic that is matched to your natural tooth or teeth.
The CEREC System allows your dentist to preserve more of your natural teeth, which in most cases eliminates the need for full crowns.
According to Wikipedia, W. Mormann and M. Brandestini from the University of Zurich developed the Chair side Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics in 1980. The revolutionary process allowed dentists to produce, construct, and insert ceramic restoration chair side in one appointment. Carried out on test patients in 1985, the CEREC System quickly became the number one restorative technique on the planet.
If your dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the CEREC System, a digital impression will be made after your old fillings, cavities or cracks have been removed. After scanning has been completed, the CEREC System milling machine will create your solid ceramic restorations in about ten to fifteen minutes. Once created, the restorations are chemically bonded to the tooth or teeth restoring it to its original condition and strength.
