What advantages does CEREC offer me?
• CEREC crowns and other restorations can usually be performed in a single visit.
• No temporary crowns to deal with.
• CEREC restorations are more natural looking and metal free.
• CEREC is extremely precise, allowing us to save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
How does CEREC work?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a 3D optical impression of the tooth.
CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology helps us design the restoration from the 3D optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full color computer monitor right before your eyes.
Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration. Two high-speed diamond burs work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material. Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using state-of-the-art dental adhesive.
The choice is simple. Beautiful results, one visit!
