Benefits of CEREC® from Our Dentist in Chicago
When you need tooth restoration due to a cavity, cracked tooth, or tooth decay, you have a few options. When you visit your dentist in Chicago, you can opt to fill your tooth with amalgam, composite, porcelain fused to metal, lab-fabricated ceramic, or CEREC. CEREC is a tooth-colored ceramic substance that can be used to restore a decayed or weakened tooth in one appointment.
Below you will find a side by side comparison of the different restoration methods that your holistic dentist in Chicago has at their disposal. As you can see, CEREC comes with many benefits that other restoration methods do not. CEREC can be placed in a single visit, does not require impression materials, has no temporaries, is metal free, looks and feels like real teeth, saves and restores strength to the tooth structure, and is a permanent solution.
Ask your dentist if the CEREC treatment in Chicago is right for your today.
