If you’ve ever had a dental crown, dental bridge, or other advanced restoration, you more than likely had to visit the dentist at least two times. At Paige Prather Smiles , we use the CEREC same-day dental restoration system to repair damage or decay in a single appointment. Dr. Paige Prather has advanced training that allows her to provide CEREC restoration of the same quality as those custom crowns and bridges available with the help of our trusted dental labs.

The CEREC process is essentially the same as traditional crown restoration, except it’s completed in a single appointment. Using advanced computer-assisted design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology, CEREC puts the ability to design, mill, and place high-quality all-ceramic restorations entirely in Dr. Prather’s hands. Once we prepared your tooth, the CEREC system allows us to capture bite impressions digitally, so they’re immediately available to the CAD/CAM system where the impressions are used to design a precise dental crown that is then crafted in our in-office milling unit.
