Restore Your Smile In One Appointment
Attaching your restoration is the final step of the dental implant process that completes your picture-perfect smile. At our Brooklyn Heights office, we use CEREC technology to improve the speed and efficiency of your treatment.
CEREC is a type of CAD/CAM software, which stands for Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing. A CEREC machine, also known as Ceramic Reconstruction, creates a 3D digital model of your teeth without the burden of messy dental impressions.
This technology allows us to create high quality, natural-looking restorations in less than an hour with our in-house lab. Explore our guide to learn more about CEREC crowns and how you can benefit.
Using the Latest in Implant Technology
After your initial consultation, Dr. Stanislaus will secure your dental implant fixture to your jaw. For the implant to successfully integrate with your jawbone, the surgical site will need a few months to heal before you can receive your final restoration.
During your next visit, Dr. Stanislaus will use the CEREC 3D software, allowing us to restore your smile in as little as 10 to 20 minutes at our in-house lab. The system will generate a digital model of your teeth, assess its shape and size, and choose an appropriate color for your crown.
Dr. Stanislaus will ensure your CEREC restoration fits properly and matches the exact shape and color of your natural teeth before proceeding. Once you’re satisfied with the 3D impression, he’ll construct your new CEREC crown and place it on top of your dental implant.
Thanks to CEREC, you no longer need to wait weeks for your permanent crown or restoration. This process is fast, safe, and simple, so you can enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful smile from the moment you leave our office.

Our cutting-edge CEREC technology allows Dr. Stanislaus to use a small intraoral camera to create a digital impression of your mouth. Best of all, he can do this in a single appointment without any messy or goopy molds.
