The benefits of CEREC dentistry
General and cosmetic dentistry solutions are available at StarBrite Dental in Fremont, California. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team of professionals believe in providing patients with quality options to improve the function, beauty, and health of their smiles. At StarBrite Dental, patients have a number of choices when it comes to restorative options including crowns, bridges, and veneers.
In the past, many restorations were made with metals. However, many dentists have gotten away from using metal and silver amalgam in the smile because of health issues, as well as aesthetics. Today, when patients restore their smiles, they want something that blends in with their natural teeth. This is why materials such as porcelain have become increasingly popular.
A traditional dentist often requires several days and sometimes weeks to complete the entire process necessary to place a crown, veneer, or bridge. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala is excited to offer her patients a way to enjoy same-day repairs: CEREC dentistry.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is not available at every dental practice, which is one of the things that set StarBrite Dental apart from other dental practices in the Fremont area. This CAD/CAD technology can mill out restorations right in the office within about 20 minutes. Digitized impressions are used to guide the creation of the restorations. Patients do not have to return for a later appointment or deal with temporary restorations which are often used by other dental practices.
