Today’s state-of-the-art technology allows us to provide higher quality, more efficient care to our patients. Dr. Joellyn Ferro in Quincy, MA has invested in the best resources for our patients, ensuring the same level of service for your family that we would for our own.
At JF Dental, PC in Quincy, Massachusetts, one of those investments is our in-house CAD/CAM milling equipment, called CEREC. CEREC uses 3D digital dentistry to virtually scan and design same day restorations like dental crowns.
How is CEREC Different?
Traditional dental crown treatments usually require two separate trips to the dentist. If something didn’t fit right, it meant making a third appointment. Since your restoration is made at an off-site lab, everything has to align perfectly for it to be fitted and placed on time.
With CEREC, JF Dental, PC in Quincy designs and manufactures your dental crown onsite during the same appointment. You’ll save valuable time since no follow-up visits are needed. CEREC ensures a proper, precise fit in just one day.
Why do I Need a Crown?
Crowns are full coverage restorations that protect structurally compromised teeth. Dr. Joellyn Ferro recommends them in situations involving large cavities, fractured teeth, or following root canal therapy. When a filling won’t work, due to the extent of damage in your tooth, a crown protects the structure that’s left behind.
Avoiding your crown treatment can predispose your tooth to additional fractures and irreversible damage.
If you think you need a crown or are looking for a second opinion, schedule a same day CEREC consultation at JF Dental, PC in Quincy.
