We know our patients lead busy lives, and that it can be difficult to find the time for dental care. The fabrication and placement of traditional restorations and porcelain veneers typically requires a minimum of two office visits over the course of a two-three week period. Cosmetic and restorative dentist Dr. John Rink believes dental care should deliver outstanding outcomes, while also being convenient for the patient. Using advanced technology, Dr. Rink can reduce restoration and veneer treatment times into one easy, seamless appointment. Our on-site CEREC® machine allows Dr. Rink to take impressions and create your customized restorations right here in the office.

The CEREC® system uses computerized technology to create individualized restorations without the need for traditional impressions, which can be messy and uncomfortable. Once the digital images of your teeth have been taken, this information is transmitted to the in-office milling machine. This machine uses blocks of top-quality porcelain to craft your dental crowns, inlays, onlays, or veneers in a way that matches the shape, size, and shade of your natural teeth.
The fabrication process can typically be completed in less than an hour, depending on the size and number of restorations you are having placed. You can rest while you wait, read, check e-mail, or even run a quick errand. After your restoration is complete, it will be carefully placed over your tooth and permanently bonded in place. You will be astonished at how such incredibly natural-looking restorations can be made in such a short period of time.
