Digital technology will change your dental experience for the better at Biggers Family Dentistry. Call 804-744-4000 to find out if you are a candidate for dental crowns or bridges created with the high-tech CEREC system.

Choose CEREC for Convenience

It takes about 2 1/2 hours total to produce dental restorations with CEREC. You simply wait and relax while Dr. Biggers works. In terms of convenience, this is like the difference between riding in a horse-drawn buggy and riding in a car!

In the traditional crown- or bridge-making process, an impression of your teeth is sent to an off-site dental laboratory, where it can take up to two weeks to produce your dental restoration. You wear a temporary crown or bridge for however long it takes the final one to be produced.

5 Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The biggest benefit of CEREC is the time you gain. Getting a dental crown or other restoration in one visit to Biggers Family Dentistry instead of two gives you a whole morning or afternoon of time you would not have had otherwise.

Getting your dental issue resolved quickly is especially important if you are experiencing discomfort from a broken or cracked tooth.

Four other benefits of CEREC same-day crowns:

  • Comfort. You won’t sit with a tray of molding material in your mouth, nor do you have to spend weeks wearing a temporary crown while your custom crown is being made.
  • Precision. As with most items created with software rather than a manual process, crowns produced with CEREC more precisely match your own teeth. Dr. Biggers can fine-tune the design if necessary, something that cannot be done easily when working with an off-site lab.
  • Durability. Because a CEREC same-day crown is made from a single, solid block of ceramic, it is strong and thus should last just as long as crowns made from other materials.
  • Versatility. We can use CEREC to create dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and dental bridges.

CEREC’s Digital Advantage

Instead of the traditional method of placing a tray filled with messy material in your mouth to get an impression of your teeth, Dr. Biggers uses the CEREC machine to take digital images of your teeth. He then uses computer-assisted design software to create a 3D model of your dental crown or other restoration. Finally, he sends the model to a milling machine located right in our Midlothian, VA dentist office, which produces your crown or other restoration.
