Are you too busy for two appointments?
A smile is one of our greatest personal assets; it is a reflection of happiness and good health. Yet many people avoid smiling because they are concerned about the condition of their teeth. Proper dental care is critical to preserving and, when necessary, restoring your unique smile.
And now, thanks to recent innovations in dentistry, proper dental care does not have to take away from your regularly scheduled life. We are able to offer patients a kinder, gentler and faster way of restoring damaged or decayed teeth in usually a single appointment.
The dental profession is evolving, and so should your experience. New technology helps diagnose problems earlier, allowing Dr. Gigliotti to treat problems sooner and with less invasive techniques. Our practice offers the latest in comfortable, convenient dentistry with our CEREC® tooth restoration system. Using the CEREC® equipment, we can now complete a color-matched ceramic or composite tooth restoration – filling, inlay or onlay, crown or veneer – in usually a single appointment.
Thankfully, innovation in dentistry has made tooth restoration easier, more convenient, more accurate and overall less worrisome for patients. Dr. Gigliotti uses a digital camera to take an optical impression of the damaged or decayed tooth,eliminating the traditionally uncomfortable and cumbersome process of taking a physical impression.
Dr. Gigliotti then designs the appropriate restoration using CAD software and mills a tooth-colored ceramic restoration
on-site, while the patient waits, in less than 13 minutes. The milled restoration is extremely precise, very durable and made with bio-compatible tooth-colored material. There’s no need for a temporary and return appointment.
While patients are most interested in the attractive quality of the final result and the time-saving approach, Dr. Gigliotti lauds the conservative treatment plans made possible by CEREC®. In addition, modern bonding techniques and precise conservative restoration design allow Dr. Gigliotti to preserve more of the healthy tooth structure, creating a stronger, more natural result.
CEREC® has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective, with more than 20 million performed worldwide.
