Foley Dental Group Now Offering CEREC Technology

Foley Dental Group's newest technology serves to facilitate the recreation of new teeth.

Online PR News – 10-August-2014 – MARYVILLE, Ill. – Foley Dental Group, a local dental practice that services the Metro East St. Louis region, is now offering CEREC technology, which creates ceramic crowns, to restore damaged teeth.

Foley Dental Group is one of the few dentists in the area to offer Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC). CEREC is a complex machine that generates high-quality, esthetic dental restorations with the assistance of state-of-the-art 3D computer technology.

Patients will experience several benefits with CEREC technology including cleaner looking crowns that blend in with the remaining natural teeth, avoiding messy final impressions and temporary restorations, and the convenience of undergoing treatment in only one day. Without the CEREC technology, tooth restorations could take several days and multiple visits to finalize.

“We are very excited to have this new technology in our office to help with tooth restorations,” said Dr. Andrea Foley, owner of Foley Dental Group. “We feel that our patients will really appreciate and enjoy the many benefits of CEREC technology and will love that the process will only take one visit.”

The CEREC machine scans and creates a 3D image of the patient’s tooth. Using this data, a custom crown is designed. As soon as the crown is designed, the data is sent to an onsite milling unit, which creates the new tooth from a high-strength ceramic block. Once finished, the new crown placed and the procedure is complete.

Foley Dental Group opened its doors in June 2009 and has been providing Maryville with quality dental care ever since. The staff at Foley is dedicated to delivering optimal service to their patients in a relaxing environment.

In the office patients can enjoy freshly baked cookies while lounging in massaging dental chairs. There are even overhead monitors where they can watch television or a movie during dental procedures.
