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.

"I have been going to this dental practice for more than 25 years and couldn't imagine getting dental work done anywhere else. They have moved from their original location and have added 2 dentists over the years but a practice I always loved got even better over time. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience there. The office is modern and immaculate. When you arrive for your appointment, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The office is run like clockwork so you never have to wait very long. Once called in, you are personally escorted to your dental chair (which has a massage option) where they go out their way to make you feel extremely comfortable. You get personalized attention to discuss any problems or concerns you may be having in your mouth. This office has all the latest and greatest in technology to make your experience the best it can be. The dentists, hygienists and all staff members are great people who are very caring and dedicated to their profession. My family of five are all patients and although my older children moved away from the area, they return to have all their dental work done by KFA Dental!"- K.S. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Root canals are nasty business. If you need one, it must be done, otherwise you will lose the tooth. Over the past two years I have had nothing but horrific experiences with dishonest, incompetent dentists. When I came to Dr. Lewis, I was expecting more of the same. Instead, I found Dr. Lewis to be incredibly professional. It was undeniably obvious she knew what she was doing. She worked with the precision of a neurosurgeon. Now, I am not an easy patient to work with. My mouth does not open very wide, so there were certain instruments she couldn’t get into my mouth, yet she worked around this with relative ease. Dr. Lewis is the Gold Standard for what all dentists should be. I left her office pain free. Now, if only I could find a regular dentist as good as Dr. Lewis, I would be set."- J.W. / Google / Oct 22, 2021
"Dr. Ferrari, Christine, Briana and the rest of the KFA team have been extremely wonderful to work with. They have incredible bedside manor, superior understanding of patients needs, payment flexibility and a wide array of industry knowledge second to none. I have worked through numerous procedures with them from cleanings, to root canal, crowns, and wisdom teeth extractions. The experience has been wonderful and the team prides themselves on the highest level or professionalism. They utilize the latest and greatest technology, are local to anyone in the Long Island area, and really go the extra mile to ensure your smile and experience are both just as perfect. 5 Stars highly recommend."- S.N. / Google / Oct 21, 2021

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.
