Same Day Restorations in Pembroke Pines – Allen Dental
Between working and taking care of your family, finding time in your schedule for multiple dental procedures can be difficult, to say the least. With the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) technology available at our practice, Dr. Hugh Allen infuses smiles with renewed structure and beauty in a single visit. Allen Dental offers the convenience of CEREC® restorations to patients throughout Pembroke Pines, Miramar, and the surrounding communities.
What Can Be Done with CEREC®?
CEREC® is a computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system that allows us to produce quality, custom-fit restorations at our Pembroke Pines practice. Whether treating injured or significantly decayed teeth, replacing absent teeth, or correcting cosmetic imperfections, this technology gives Dr. Allen the versatility to address an array of issues with greater efficiency. Our dentist uses CEREC® to provide patients with onlays, inlays, crowns, implant restorations, and veneers without waiting for an off-site facility.
More than producing restorations, our practice draws on the flexibility of CEREC® to improve other aspects of your care. For instance, the digital impressions captured as part of this process supply Dr. Allen with your teeth’s exact positioning and measurements without the unpleasant sensation associated with traditional impression material. Our office also uses these precise scans to design custom-fit Invisalign® clear aligners.
The in-house milling machine we use as part of this approach crafts restorations from a variety of dental ceramics, including porcelain and e.max®. Each of these materials can be used to return uniformity to your smile, while also possessing distinct advantages in the durability and aesthetic appeal they offer. This allows Dr. Allen to provide you with restorations designed to suit your specific dental situation and treatment expectations.
While most patients are able to have their functional and appearance needs met with same-day restorative care, not everyone is an ideal candidate for this convenient option. For instance, patients who heavily grind their teeth or have large spaces in their smile may have more beneficial results from conventional restorations, such as bridges. To find out if CEREC® is the right choice to address your concerns, reach out to Allen Dental and schedule a consultation.
CEREC® Restorations for Emergency Cases
If you need urgent care for a damaged tooth or restoration, Allen Dental provides emergency treatment using CEREC®. Our patients have often remarked how they appreciate the prompt care they receive from this service. Typically, only an hour and a half is needed to go from your examination to having the final restoration placed. As with all of our restorative solutions, we do color matching in-office to ensure your dental replacement has a natural appearance that blends seamlessly into your smile.
