If we say “mouth impressions,” do you think goopy and gaggy and no thanks? Not anymore. At our practice we’ve incorporated CEREC digital impression technology for over 7 years. This technology allows us to take digital computerized scans of the mouth and create virtual models of the teeth. The patient can then watch us design their crown right on the computer screen. This technology is great for both the doctor and the patient, because the experience is more comfortable and allows the patient to truly understand the process and ask questions. The design is then sent to our in-office computerized milling station where the crown is fabricated while you wait. We can then custom stain the crown to match your existing teeth, in order to give you a perfect, seamless smile. Feel free to view the video demonstration of how the process works.
Digital dentistry is continuously expanding the services we can provide to our patients. Dr. Unger and Dr. Shannon are both certified in CEREC Dentistry. Dr. Unger is also certified in soft tissue laser dentistry.
