CEREC dental restorations, offered by the esteemed Dr. Peter Patellis in Kennett Square, PA, bring a new level of convenience and excellence to dental procedures. Dr. Patellis employs this innovative technology to provide patients with outstanding results and a renewed sense of confidence.

What Are CEREC Same-Day Restorations?

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a state-of-the-art dental technology allowing Dr. Patellis to create high-quality ceramic dental restorations in a single visit. 

CEREC employs 3D imaging, computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to craft precise, natural-looking dental restorations. This groundbreaking approach eliminates the need for multiple appointments, temporary restorations, and laboratory wait times.

CEREC Restorations are:

  • Natural-looking
  • Strong & durable
  • Metal-free
  • Anti-abrasive
  • High-grade
  • Plaque-resistant

Our CEREC Restoration Options

At our Kennett Square dental office, we can provide several CEREC restorations that restore your teeth and illuminate your smile in just one day: 

  • Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are custom CEREC tooth caps attached to a damaged tooth to protect and restore the structure. 
  • Dental Bridges: CEREC-designed dental bridges replace missing teeth using the surrounding healthy teeth for support, “bridging” the gap.
  • Dental Implant Crowns: For patients with dental implants, CEREC can design and fabricate implant crowns that blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. This results in a cohesive and harmonious smile.

Caring For Your CEREC Restoration

Caring for your CEREC restorations is essential to ensure their longevity and maintain your overall oral health. By following these guidelines, you can keep your restorations looking great and functioning optimally:

  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Just like natural teeth, these restorations require regular brushing and flossing to prevent plaque buildup and maintain a healthy smile. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently clean your teeth.
  • Floss Regularly: Flossing helps remove food particles and plaque between your teeth and around your restorations. 
  • Avoid Abrasive Products: Harsh toothpaste and abrasive mouthwashes can scratch the surface of your CEREC restorations, causing them to lose their natural shine. 
  • Minimize Staining Foods and Drinks: While ceramic restorations are stain-resistant, it’s still a good idea to limit highly pigmented foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, and dark-colored berries to maintain their appearance.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking not only stains your teeth but can also affect the appearance of your restorations over time. Quitting smoking benefits both your oral health and the longevity of your restorations.
  • Protect Against Grinding: If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, consider using a nightguard.
  • Maintain Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular check-ups with Dr. Patellis to monitor the condition of your restorations. Professional cleanings and exams help catch any issues early on.

“Who loves going to the dentist? I do- when coming to see Dr. Patellis & his amazing staff! Located in a charming office space in downtown Kennet Square, it’s like going to see old friends. But with the most up to date technology & expertise in dental care. I suffered a painful bone fracture from being intubated from a surgery elsewhere. Dr. Pete was able to see me right away and get me on the road to a pain free recovery quickly. Highly recommend!”
