Norwalk CT dentist Dr. Michael Hodish
Using the Cerec technology, we can change your teeth from what you see on the left, to what you see on the right, in one session, with many advantages over the older ways of doing this. Better, faster, more beautiful, and long lasting.
Cerec (tm) is an amazing system that allow me to create metal free, all ceramic (porcelain) dental restorations such as crowns and veneers,
in a single session, with no impressions, and no need for temporary crowns.
With conventional (not Cerec) methods, a crown takes at least two sessions. On the first, the tooth is reduced in size, a mold is made of it, and a temporary crown is made.
The mold is sent to a laboratory, where the crown is made. Later, the dentist sees you a second time, tests the fit of the crown, and delivers it, if all is well. If not, more visits are needed.
With Cerec, besides eliminating the second visit, we eliminate the lab technician, who had to work blind, in the past, as he would not see the patient directly.
Now, I am, in a sense, both the doctor, and the technician. I have full control of the whole process, and I know exactly what I am trying to make, because I can see your mouth in front of me as I am working.
One of the great advantages of Cerec crowns is that they have no metal, so no dark line near the gum. Also, without metal, we can see through them with x-rays, allowing early detection of any new decay.
