CEREC Crowns

Call Our Office For Pittsburgh Restorative Dentistry and CEREC Same Day Crowns

Dr. Kevin Pawlowicz DDS and Dr. Jeff Bono DMD, are thrilled to offer patients in Pittsburgh, CEREC dental crowns. Among the many advanced dental technologies we use at Fox Chapel Advanced Dental Care, CEREC stands out as a benchmark in restorative dentistry.

CEREC (short for (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is an innovative dental technology allowing dentists to create and produce ceramic dental restorations in their dental office in under an hour. CEREC crowns are fabricated from high quality ceramic material, giving the restoration a natural look, feel, and function. Having the ability to create and produce dental restorations on sight dramatically decreases the wait time for permanent crowns.

What to Expect when Receiving a CEREC Restoration:

When patients looking for dental crowns in Pittsburgh choose CEREC, they do not have to hassle with multiple office visits. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for CEREC by completing a thorough exam, the damaged tooth or teeth are prepared for the restoration. All signs of decay are cleared, and then an impression of the remaining portion of the tooth is taken to assist in the creation of the 3-D model for the crown. Special 3-D software is used to convert the impression into a model that can be used to create your tooth restoration through the use of a milling machine and a small ceramic block. The CEREC machine mills the dental crown and you, the patient are ready to go with your permanent restoration in about an hour. 

Advancing Restorative Dentistry with Same Day Crowns

In order to become an effective Pittsburgh CEREC dentist, Dr. Pawlowicz and Dr. Bono have undergone training through Sirona Dental Systems, the creator of CEREC and has even worked along side them to advance their technology. Today, as a CEREC trainer himself, Dr. Pawlowicz has helped to promote CEREC in the dental field and trained fellow dentists, both nationally and internationally, about the benefits of using CEREC.
