On June 3, the Department of Health made a statement that dental offices can resume seeing all patients for all (emergency and routine) care. In an effort to make Baccellieri Family Dentistry the safest environment we can, we have made some changes over the last few months.


What improvements have we made to further eliminate virus transmission?


•  UV lighting was installed in the ventilation to kill 99% of germs and viruses.
•  In addition to following OSHA guidelines for cleaning rooms, we use an HOCl fogger to disinfect the environment between patients in treatment rooms and used periodically in open spaces.
•  Staff members use additional Personal Protective Equipment (sterile gowns, shields, hair coverings) along with the typical sterile gloves and KN95 masks they have always worn.
•  We installed plastic barriers at check-in and check-out for your safety while talking to front desk staff.


What to expect when you come in for an appointment?


•  You will be asked to wear a mask or face covering into the office, wearing at all times except while you are being treated.
•  At entry, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer, a staff member will take your temperature (no contact / forehead) and do a brief screening for illness.
•  The waiting room is arranged so that the recommended 6 foot social distancing is in effect.


We are excited to see our patients again and help maintain those healthy smiles!

CEREC® Same Day Crown


Dental assistant assisting with CEREC technologyDental restorations are important for treating damaged or decayed teeth. These treatments help us to protect teeth that have suffered serious issues, restoring their health and their normal functions. A common restoration for teeth affected by more significant damage is a crown. While effective, the fact that crowns typically take two appointments can be problematic. At Baccellieri Family Dentistry, we can provide ceramic crowns in just one appointment with CEREC.

The Issue with Two Appointments


The standard crown procedure requires two separate appointments. While it might not seem like all that big of a deal, there are some significant disadvantages to this. One of the biggest drawbacks is the fact that you have to wear a temporary crown. This crown is meant to protect the tooth until your actual crown is done. However, it may not always be effective. It can come loose or fall out. When this happens, the prepared tooth is at risk for damage and bacterial invasion.

Another significant drawback is the fact that you need to schedule two different appointments. Your schedule is already busy enough. Having to schedule two appointments can interfere with your normal life. Moreover, if the crown needs to go back to the lab, you will need to schedule yet another appointment.

CEREC Technology


CEREC uses some of the latest, cutting edge dental technology. Instead of standard impressions, digital impressions are taken. This is done using a handheld wand that takes a digital image of your teeth and gums. The image then goes onto the computer and creates a 3D model of your mouth.

Using this 3D model, we can create an incredibly accurate dental restoration. There is much greater accuracy with this technology than there is with traditional impressions and models.

CEREC technology also involves the use of an in-house milling unit. This is the machine that creates your crown. The crown is cut out of a block of ceramic that we place into the machine after it receives the information from the crown we designed.

How Getting a CEREC Crown Works


Getting your CEREC crown begins just like getting a regular crown. We first need to prepare the damaged tooth. This means we need to remove tooth enamel. Next, we capture the digital impression and create your crown. After the crown is created, it is made right in our in-house lab. Once finished, we check its fit. If any adjustments are needed, they are made right then and there. There are no temporary restorations and no additional visits. This helps to avoid the complications associated with temporary crowns and prevents you from having to take more time out of your already busy schedule. Once your crown fits perfectly, it is cemented onto the tooth.

What Else Can CEREC Do?


CEREC is frequently used to make ceramic crowns. That is not all this technology can be used to do. It can also be used to create other restorations such as bridges, crowns for dental implants, inlays, onlays, and more. It is important to know that CEREC can only be used to make ceramic crowns in a single appointment. If you are getting a traditional metal crown, you will still need to have two appointments. With CEREC, you can receive a perfectly natural-looking dental crown in only one appointment.
