What is Same-Day Restoration?
Until recently, dental reconstructions demanded, at the very minimum, two dental visits since physical dental impressions were created and sent to a dental laboratory. However, KFA Dental Excellence is now very happy to provide CEREC technology for same-day restorations. CEREC (which stands for ceramic reconstruction) utilizes state-of-the-art computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing technology to produce your restoration in our practice while you wait. We utilize the CEREC system to make custom bridges, crowns, inlays, and onlays. The CEREC system can be used for cosmetic treatments to generate customized veneers as well. This revolutionary treatment allows you to skip the discomfort and time of physical dental impressions and temporary covers. Schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dentists at our office in Farmingdale, NY to find out more about CEREC restorations.

How Does Same-Day Restoration Work?
A CEREC restoration will start with a consultation where one of our skilled dentists will work with you to create your personal treatment plan. We will take a scan of your mouth and create your restoration. From there, your restoration will be placed into the CEREC machine to be milled. The amount of time required to create your restoration will be based on its size. Once the restoration is created, we will complete and polish it before putting it in place in your mouth. We may need to modify the restoration once it's in place so it fits properly and comfortably and matches the natural color of your tooth enamel.
How Do I Care for My Mouth After same-day restoration?
Once your same-day restoration is complete, it's very important that you keep a great at-home oral hygiene routine. Your annual dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at KFA Dental Excellence will also be vital. At every appointment, one of our highly skilled dentists will check your CEREC restoration to ensure everything is still properly set. In the event that something needs adjustment, we will either take care of it during your appointment or schedule a new appointment to address those issues. We want to make sure you can maintain your best healthy mouth. If cared for properly, ceramic restorations can remain in place for several years.
