Porcelain Restorations that
Blend In-House Technology with Expertise

Whether your teeth are prone to severe decay and discoloration due to genetics, damaged by wear and tear, or you’ve lost several to gum disease or injury, the Wolfy Dental Group can help. Dental crowns in Wallingford, CT, are tooth caps that surround a damaged tooth to restore its strength and appearance. Dental bridges are a tooth replacement option with one or more false teeth connected to natural teeth with crowns on each side.

Our team doesn’t think you should struggle another day with the repercussions of an imperfect smile. Instead of waiting many weeks to restore a damaged or missing tooth, we use advanced, in-house digital restoration technology to deliver same-day crowns. This enables the designing and fabricating of high-quality tooth crowns and dental bridges in Wallingford, CT, without needing an outside dental lab.

What is CEREC Technology?

CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) is an innovative technology that uses CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) to create restorations. The digital impressions are sent to our on-site milling machine to fabricate natural-looking dental crowns and dental bridges from durable porcelain while you wait. CEREC technology eliminates the hassle of taking messy impressions, wearing temporary crowns, and scheduling another visit after the dental lab completes your restorations!

The CEREC Restoration Process

First, your tooth needs to be filled to accommodate the dental crown, although less tooth structure is removed than traditional crowns. They take an impression using a high-definition intraoral scanner and design software. Every part of the CEREC system works seamlessly with the others, delivering clinically reliable results without requiring extensive reworking. We choose the perfect color to ensure your new crown blends in with your other teeth.

The images are sent to the CEREC mill, which precisely carves your restoration. After the porcelain crown is milled, we polish it and check to ensure it fits seamlessly and comfortably. The new crown is permanently cemented in place, and we ask you to bite down to restore your normal bite alignment. With material that closely matches your original tooth structure, you’ll enjoy restored beauty, strength, and function when you receive a CEREC dental crown from Wolfy Dental—in less than two hours!
