Tri-State Family Dentistry invests in latest technology to better serve its patients Tri-State Family Dentistry is known for providing personal care with the latest in technological advancements, and their latest upgrade is sure to combine the best of both. “We acquired a CEREC machine about a month ago,” said Dr. Tiffany Buller-Schussler, DDS. CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Basically, it’s a system that allows the dentist to economically create custom-made crowns in a single appointment, using a highquality porcelain material that matches the natural color of the patient’s
surrounding teeth. CEREC uses CAD/ CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology similar to that found in the manufacturing and automotive industry, on a smaller scale. “We can reduce a process that used to take up to two visits over two to four weeks, down to a couple of hours in one afternoon,” explained Buller-Schussler. “This is a great option for people who don’t want to wait for their crown or don’t tolerate the gooey impression.” Buller-Schussler said. “It reduces the inconvenience of multiple
visits, and does away with the need to make impressions because it uses a 3-D color camera to take real-time photos of your teeth and gums. Then it uses these images to make the crown, all in about two hours.” You can even watch the manufacturing process. “We encourage people to watch us design and make their crowns because it’s a really cool process,” said BullerSchussler. The finished product is a crown that looks more like your natural teeth and also fits better than a crown made from a mold. “CEREC lets us design
the contact points before we do the final firing so that once we’re done, the crown usually fits perfectly,” she said. Visit Dr. Tiffany Buller-Schussler and Dr. Megan Weisenberger, DMD, at Tri-State Family Dentistry for your new crown and all your dental care needs.
