Dr. Cross has been featured in the 2011 Q3 issue of CEREC magazine for his work on a challenging, one-day cosmetic dentistry restoration. Dr. Cross was treating a 48-year-old patient who wanted to restore an older set of dental veneers. The patient wanted to have the old dental veneers removed and 12 new porcelain veneers placed, giving them a beautiful and durable new smile. The challenge: Prep, scan, design, mill, layer, glaze and seat 12 porcelain veneers in one day.
Using modern dental technology and materials, Dr. Cross, the OC Lifesmiles staff, and the restoration team rose to the occasion and began early in the day. First, they started by removing all of the patients old dental veneers. Then the patients temporary veneers were fabricated, placed and adjusted for bite and function. Once the adjustments were made to the temporaries, creation and milling the final porcelain veneers was then completed. After some minor adjustments Dr. Cross placed the final porcelain veneers giving the patient a stunning, natural looking smile, that is also very durable.
The entire one day cosmetic restoration process was made possible with the combination of CEREC technology, all-ceramic materials, and the training and experience of Dr. Cross, the OC Lifesmile staff, and the restoration team.
