Veneers, onlays and crowns
Fast in usually taking just one visit
Bahri Dental Group uses digital X-rays. We take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. There are a number of tools that allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. The benefit to the patient is the digital X-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard X-ray. The digital version of the X-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
CEREC Crowns, Onlays & Veneers
  • One Visit
  • No Temporaries
  • Precise Fit
One of the most exciting, state-of-the-art procedures that we offer is the CEREC restoration. Within a single appointment at our office in Jacksonville, FL, we can restore a tooth from start to finish using ceramic, tooth-colored materials. Using computer technology, we craft your restoration in the office on the same day that we prepare your tooth, so there are no impressions taken, no temporary crowns, and no second visit.

Not only are CEREC restorations convenient; they also help prolong the life of your teeth. The CEREC ceramic closely matches the composition of your natural tooth structure, which means that when you eat hot and cold foods, your restoration expands and contracts at nearly the same rate as your natural tooth, so your tooth will not crack.
With CEREC, we can offer an alternative to crowns in some cases. When a large portion of the natural tooth has become decayed, and a filling will not be strong enough, dentists must trim off most of the tooth structure to make room for a crown to be placed on what is left of the tooth. Later on, if the tooth needs to be restored again, often the tooth will need to be extracted and replaced with a bridge or implant. However, CEREC offers an alternative, called an onlay, where only the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, preserving more of the natural tooth. If the tooth with an onlay needs to be restored in the future, a crown can be placed, instead a bridge or implant.

CEREC also allows us to replace old amalgam metal fillings (which contain mercury) with ceramic ones, improving both aesthetics and health.

The CEREC technology also works for cosmetic restorations, so anterior crowns and veneers are completed in a single visit to our Jacksonville office, often with dramatic results.
