How to avoid multiple trips to the dentist

Between work, running the kids around, and making sure everyone has their shoes on before school, it can be hard as a mom and a working woman to find the time for yourself – especially when it comes to seeing the dentist.

We can empathize with busy days, which is why we want to know if you’ve ever heard of CEREC? Most people haven’t, but it is the best solution for those of us who don’t have the time for multiple trips to the dentist.

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It reduces the wait time for any ceramic restorative dentistry like crowns, onlays, or veneers from 1-2 weeks to 1-2 hours, and doesn’t require a second visit. You read that right, if you need any sort of restorative dentistry CEREC can be done in a single visit.

We know the phrase “single visit to the dentist” is amazing enough, but there are some other really convenient things about CEREC we can’t help but share.

You know how usually when you go to the dentist for a crown, they use that gunky impression material? Not us. Not with a CEREC restoration. The process is actually really comfortable. You’ll come into Exceptional Dentistry and Dr. James D. Powell will take a picture of your tooth, and then custom design your restorations while you enjoy a paraffin moisture hand mask or finish that last episode in the season on our movie glasses.

Once the designs are created, they are sent to our milling machine to construct your custom restorations. Then Dr. James D. Powell checks their fit, adjusts as needed, and secures them in place. In a single visit, you’ll walk out with a gorgeous smile more than ready to tackle the day’s next demand.

We know how important it is to look and feel your best, and we understand it’s hard to wait 1-2 weeks for a dental lab to make your restoration and send them back to us — which is why we offer CEREC to help you save time.

Use that would be “second visit” for some well-deserved me time. Email or Call us today 661.349.7725.
