Esthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single visit. Ask Family Dental Care™ about CEREC®.

Neighborhood

This new technology is in your neighborhood! Family Dental Care™ offers the availability of tooth-colored fillings and crowns, formed to exact tooth dimensions in a single office visit. The new approach to tooth restoration is made possible by innovative CEREC® CAD/CAM technology that designs and mills a custom ceramic restoration in less than 10 minutes. It means that in just 2 hours you can have a crown! There are no temporaries and no need for a second visit. It’s a precise fit.

No unpleasant impression material

Say goodbye to biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache. Your dentist now has a camera that can do this for you in seconds and then transfer this to the computer.

No bothersome temporary crown

Temporary crowns are exactly what the name suggests: temporary. With CEREC®the final crown is inserted directly without any temporary compromises needed.

No follow-up appointment in most instances

CEREC® enables your dentist to insert esthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single session.

The advantage of this is that only one appointment is necessary, which means only one injection, and then you can deal with other things than visits to the dentist.

Long-term stability

More than just a theory: With CEREC® you can rely on quality that has been proven millions of times over in the practice. Furthermore, thanks to your new dental crown made by CEREC®, your smile will be just as lovely many years later as it is directly after receiving the crown.

Like a real tooth

  • Due to the translucency of ceramics, the dental crown looks like a real tooth.
  • In a ceramic dental crown, no dark edges are visible as is so often the case in conventional crowns.
  • Ceramic is very close to the hardness of the natural tooth, thus preventing wear of the tooth, which unfortunately so often occurs with other materials.
  • Ceramic is very well tolerated so allergic reactions are largely excluded. This is not the case with other methods and materials.
  • The CEREC® method is a gentle treatment for your teeth. Only the decayed tooth surface is removed. The remaining healthy tooth substance is preserved.

All-ceramic fillings

The esthetic alternative to gold, amalgam, and tooth-colored fillings.

All-ceramic crowns

The most esthetic solution for treating severely destroyed individual teeth.

All-ceramic crowns

Before and After (shown above)

  • Conventional metal crowns are associated with other disadvantages than just inferior esthetic appearance. Gum irritation and impairment of taste or other sensations occur very frequently.
  • All-ceramic crowns not only allow the perfect restoration of individual teeth, they also give you renewed self-confidence.

All-ceramic veneers

The most esthetic solution for chipped or discolored anterior teeth.

All-ceramic veneers

Before and After (shown above)

All-ceramic veneers are ultra-thin, highly esthetic veneers that are placed directly onto the visible surfaces of natural teeth, mainly at the front of the mouth.

Optically, no difference can be detected between all-ceramic veneers and the adjacent natural teeth. You’ll see: Your entire appearance will improve dramatically.

PANORAMIC DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES SAFER AND QUICKER DENTAL EXAMS

PANORAMIC DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES SAFER AND QUICKER DENTAL EXAMS

3D dental technology, otherwise known as “cone beam,’ is available in the south suburbs! Family Dental Care™, located at 9101 S. Cicero Avenue is Oak Lawn has invested in this technology to enhance the quality of care provided for patients.

Technological advances, such as digital imaging systems, have significantly increased the level of detailed information available to dentists while reducing the level of patient radiation exposure. While oral health professionals have long relied on 2-D imaging for diagnosis and treatment planning, this technology typically requires multiple exposures, and with them, multiple doses of radiation.

With cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), oral health professionals gain a highly accurate 3-D image of the patient’s anatomy from a single scan. These 3-D images allow the dentist to better diagnose and understand the true extent of dental disease, and they can provide for more appropriate and faster treatment for patients.

Digital imaging has become one of the most important diagnostic tools for oral health professionals, and the greatest advance in the past decade has come with CBCT. It uses a cone-shaped beam and digital processing to reconstruct a virtually distortion-free 3-D image of the patient’s complete skull or dental anatomy in a single pass, depending on the field of view.

Here are reasons why patient should be aware of this new technology.

Safer Examinations

The CS 8100 3D uses dental 3D technology to limit radiation dose and ensure safer exams.

  • Confine radiation to area of interest with flexible fields of view
  • Control size, resolution, and dose for each exam
  • Adherence to the ALARA Principle helps you keep radiation exposure as low as reasonably achievable
  • Low dose modes available for 3D images at a lower dose than panoramic images

Convenient for Everyone

This 3D technology makes image acquisition quick and simple.

  • Intuitive interface and letter landmarks on the bite block simplify the examination process
  • Open, face-to-face design puts patients at ease and promotes comfort
  • Fast scanning times (7 seconds minimum) prevent movement and reduce retakes
  • Accessible to patients of all sizes and individuals in wheelchairs

Versatile Capabilities

From traditional panoramic exams to endodontics, implant planning, oral surgeries and orthodontic applications, the CS 8100 3D is capable of much more than the average 3D unit.

  • Award-winning 2D technology for superb panoramic images in seconds
  • Accurate 3D representations ensure accurate diagnoses
  • CAD/CAM abilities allow a dentist to perform more procedures in their office
  • Family Dental Care™, located at 9101 S. Cicero Avenue in Oak Lawn has invested in this state-ofthe- art technology and is available Monday through Saturday to consult patients.
