No Temporary.
No Messy Impressions.
One Easy Appointment.

CEREC
is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth.  CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes.  CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain.    The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit.  In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.

Perhaps one of the most significant advancements that our office employs is the use of the CEREC machine (CAD/CAM Technology) to fabricate single-unit porcelain restorations such as crowns, veneers and fillings.  In the past, dentists used to take impression once a tooth had been prepared, and wait two weeks while the restoration was fabricated at a dental lab.  Today, our office takes an optical scan of the prepared tooth, the restoration is designed on the computer screen for a perfect fit, and prepared from a block of porcelain in under 20 minutes!  The esthetic and cosmetic results are BREATH TAKING…all without laboratory wait time and temporaries
Procedure

The procedure for placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple.  The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth.  The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture.  The tooth is then sprayed with a very fine powder.  This allows the digital camera to take an acceptable image.  Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D.  This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you.  Once the design is completed, the CEREC will mill the restoration.  This step takes approximately 15 minutes.  You can actually watch this process if you would like.  When the restoration is finished milling, the doctor will place the restoration.  The entire process should take just over an hour.

What our patients say

I used to be a very anxious patient, but Grayhills & Mohip Dental changed that. Both dentists are experienced, professional, and have incredible personalities. The technology is off the charts, and you’re able to watch satellite TV while you get your teeth cleaned. Their laser technology can allow you to get a filling without injections. Highly recommend.

I have always hated and feared going to the dentist, not the people, just having to go. However, after a few minutes here, I was totally put at ease. The office is beautiful, Dr. Mohip was wonderful, and the entire staff was top notch!! NOT a place I want to frequent, but when the time comes, this is where I’ll go! Thank you!
