To provide dental crowns and dental veneers in just one dental appointment, Dr. Jim Heck uses CEREC® in Greenwood, Indiana. CEREC technology is a system that helps our dentist quickly scan your tooth and then design and build dental restorations in our dental office. CEREC technology eliminates the need for multiple appointments to place a dental restoration like a dental crown or a dental veneer. This technology also eliminates the need for temporary crowns and temporary veneers.

After preparing a tooth for a dental crown or a dental veneer, our dentist will scan the tooth and the tooth on the opposing jaw. CEREC scanning technology produces 3D images in natural color. CEREC software will then analyze the image and calculate restoration proposals. This helps our dentist to design your dental restoration quickly and with ease. Designs produced with CEREC software rarely need to be reworked, as they fit perfectly in the patient’s smile. The dental restoration is then constructed with a milling machine. The result, which is durable, safe, and aesthetic, is permanently cemented in place by our dentist.
