Kansas City, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/14/2016 -- It used to be an inconvenience to get a crown placed. The X-rays, the trays full of goop that made everyone gag. It felt like all the teeth were coming out when they pulled the tray out, plus at least two visits to the dentist's office. The final step was to get a temporary crown that tasted and felt like aluminum foil.
Dr. Busch comments, "Then the patient would have to schedule a second appointment to get the permanent crown placed, which meant another injection and grinding the crown to get it to fit well." Fortunately that is no longer the scenario with CEREC one-visit crowns.
Dr. Busch provides patients with the latest technology in same-day crowns, fillings and restoring teeth with CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). "It's a new system for making porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays or repairing veneers during one visit. The procedure takes approximately two hours from start to finish," remarks Dr. Busch. The CEREC system incorporates a camera, a computer and milling machine in just one piece of technology thanks to CAD-CAM, the software that works with the system.
Dr. Bill Busch and Dr. Tucker VanYperen have made the investment in CEREC® digital dentistry and getting a crown has never been easier. The system can cost-effectively restore damaged teeth in just one visit. "Matching the crown to the natural color of the other teeth is extremely important, which is why we use a high-quality ceramic material," remarks Dr. Van Yperen. To obtain an accurate picture of the damaged tooth they use a special camera. The optical impression is transferred and displayed on a full spectrum color computer where the doctors put into motion the CAD technology to design the restoration. From there, CAM takes over the procedure and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits.
In the final stage, Dr. Busch or Dr. VanYperen bonds the new crown to the surface of the old tooth. The complete process takes about two hours and the patient leaves the office with a new crown and no return visits.
Dr. Busch is regarded as an opinion-leader by his peers and professionals in the dental industry.Dr. VanYperen enjoys all aspects of dentistry, with a special interest in restoring function and aesthetics.
