CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. The restoration is metal-free, and the ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process
During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will use a diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using adhesive dentistry.
Why Choose CEREC?
There are many advantages of CEREC over traditional crown technology.
Time: CEREC crowns are made in one visit.
Comfort: With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, which may eliminate significant potential discomfort.
Aesthetics: The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function and closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.
Strength: Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing.
Fillings: CEREC material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since they are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
