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.

"I love Dr. Barry! He’s always very happy to see you. The facility is very clean and modern. It makes you feel more confident that you are being taken care of while you are there. I never had to wait very long in the waiting area which is also nice. I had a crown and a few cavities that he took care of without pain!My only issue is that he isn’t covered by my current health insurance plan :("- K.B. / Yelp / Jan 12, 2022

"I had not been to a dentist in quite a few years. I was very impressed with all of the undated dental equipment in Dr. McDonald's office. The new equipment made getting x-rays a lot easier than I have ever had in the past. I received a very thorough examination. It was a very low key experience. Dr. McDonald identified some work that needed to be performed. He showed me the results of the x-rays and explained the work that needed to be performed in terms I could understand. He stated that, considering how long I had been away from a dentists office, I was in pretty good shape. He recommended certain things that needed to be done sooner than later, and other things that he would monitor for potential future procedures. I know that some dentists just try to "drill, fill, and bill", so this was very comforting. Dr. McDonald's staff was also very knowledgeable and provided me up front pricing for all of the recommended work."- L.L. / Google / Oct 03, 2021

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.
