Dr. K.B. Parkes and Dr. Karen S. Keenan use CEREC technology at their Nashville, TN, practice to create lifelike, durable dental restorations such as crowns and porcelain veneers. CEREC prosthetics can conceal damaged or misshapen teeth in a personalized, chairside treatment without the need for an outside lab. In some cases, the doctors are able to digitally plan and prepare your restorations in a single office visit.
What is CEREC?
CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic is a cost-effective, efficient method for creating porcelain veneers, bridges, and crowns. Our office uses digital scans to plan and create your restoration, eliminating the need for uncomfortable traditional impression trays.
Studies have found that 85 percent of CEREC restorations remained fully intact after 10 years.
Once we complete your scans, we will export the images to the CEREC software and generate previews of what your restoration will look like. Once you are pleased with the projected results of your treatment, we will use the CEREC unit to precisely create incredibly lifelike restorations that complement your smile.
