Dentists

“Mom, what are those black things in your teeth?”
Many of us got silver fillings in our teenage years. Now, those fillings are over 20 years old and we are too busy chasing our own kids around to properly address our teeth.
At new32 Dental, CEREC technology allows Dr. Jason Fligor to provide an incredible porcelain replacement in just ONE easy appointment. With this CEREC ‘one visit’ process, you will leave with your permanent crown.  NO temporaries and NO second visit.  CEREC milled porcelain is highly durable and the lack of any metal gives it a very natural appearance in the mouth.  Spend less time in the dental chair and more time with those you love.  Mention “Red Tri” and receive $200 off any CEREC restoration.
