  • Conservative restorations retain more healthy tooth structure.

Single Appointment Dental Care

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off and have a permanent restoration bonded to the tooth.

With CEREC®, Dr. Keene performs the entire procedure in just a single appointment from start to finish. No impressions, no temps – just beautiful, tooth colored restorations in one visit!

CEREC®

Advanced Dental Materials

Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC®, Dr. Keene can use strong, tooth colored ceramic to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function.

These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates, reducing the likelihood of fractures.

The restoration is also chemically bonded to your tooth, resulting in a stronger and healthier tooth.
