Traditionally, restorations needed at least two dentist appointments since physical dental impressions were created and shipped to a dental lab. Del Mar dentist Dr. Ron Barry is now very happy to provide CEREC technology for one-visit restorations. CEREC (an abbreviation for ceramic reconstruction) utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) equipment to make your restoration in our practice as you wait. Ron Barry, D.M.D. utilizes the CEREC system to generate customized bridges, crowns, onlays, and inlays. The CEREC machine may also be utilized for cosmetic treatments to generate customized veneers. This revolutionary system enables you to bypass the hassle and time of physical dental impressions and multiple visits.

"Dr. Barry and his staff run a modern, clean, and efficient practice using the latest technologies to assist them in evaluating and caring for their patients. As a new patient I had a full set of digital x-rays taken, followed by possibly my most thorough oral exam ever including a complete explanation of the findings by Dr. Barry, and finally my teeth were expertly cleaned by the hygienist Kristen. During the exam I felt like I had the full attention of Dr. Barry as he considered my previous dental history and made his recommendations. Overall, a very positive experience — this dental practice is a keeper! Full disclosure: I am a former dental hygienist, so you know I was watching very carefully."- R.U. / Google / Nov 08, 2019

What to Expect
The CEREC restoration will begin with an appointment where Dr. Barry will create your personal treatment program. The procedure will require an electronic scan of your teeth. The scan will allow Dr. Barry to manufacture your restoration. From that point, your restoration will be placed into the CEREC system to be made. The amount of time required to make your restoration will be based on its dimensions. When the restoration is ready, Dr. Barry can complete and polish the item before putting it in position. He will then modify the restoration so it's fitting properly and matches with your natural enamel.
Once your CEREC restoration is created, it's essential to keep a great home dental hygiene regimen. You should also schedule yearly dental exams and cleanings at Ron Barry, D.M.D. in Del Mar, CA to maintain your oral health and monitor the wear and tear on your restorations. At every appointment, Dr. Barry will assess your CEREC restoration and perform any needed repairs or alterations that will help keep your teeth healthy. If cared for correctly, CEREC restorations can remain in place for several years.
Restorations are usually partially paid by insurance. We'll get in touch with your insurer to confirm your benefits and your out-of-pocket expenses. If you do not have insurance, then Dr. Barry will tell you about payment methods we take, such as medical financing.
