    HARRISBURG, PA, December 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- From taking a tumble to sports injuries, there are many reasons for broken and missing teeth. Even poor oral hygiene can cause decay to build up, which also results in dental damage. While many of these situations can be prevented, life is unpredictable and we may find ourselves dealing with a dental problem. In this case, the most likely treatment is a dental crown, which is fitted over the tooth to improve its appearance and protect it from outside factors. However, with advancements in dental technology, there are now easier, faster ways to provide a new, improved smile without the hassle of multiple visits. The technology is CEREC CAD/CAM, and Harrisburg dentist, Dr. Ernest Fontaine is proud to offer this revolutionary technology to his patients.

Traditionally, when getting a crown, an impression was made of the patient's mouth to create the crown. However, things have been made simpler with CEREC CAD/CAM technology, which now scans the tooth and analyzes it for fabrication via a computer. "The CEREC CAD/CAM is the future of dentistry," says Dr. Fontaine, dentist in Harrisburg, PA. "Metal crowns are now a thing of the past. With the CEREC machine, you are guaranteed to get a strong, natural-looking porcelain crown every time. Metal crowns are now obsolete." Patients can breathe a little easier knowing that they can now replace broken or missing teeth with a crown that looks just as real as a natural tooth.

The CEREC machine also offers better accuracy and fit when creating a dental crown. "When I use this technology, it's amazing how much more detailed and accurate it is when I make changes to the crown's design," says Harrisburg dentist, Dr. Fontaine. "It's also easy to customize the crown, making sure it's the proper shape and shade for each patient."

For many, finding time to visit the dentist can be difficult. When a dental procedure is necessary, multiple visits are often expected, which can be hard for many patients to fit into their busy schedules. "One of the major advantages of the CEREC CAD/CAM system is being able to get your dental crown on the same day it is prepared," says Dr. Fontaine, Harrisburg dentist. "This means patients can have a brand new crown in just one visit, which is a relief for our busy patients who may not have a lot of free time to schedule multiple visits."
