Why Choose CEREC©?
Some of the many advantages of using CEREC© include: Time: CEREC© crowns are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from your job and family.
Comfort: With CEREC©, there is no need for another injection, a temporary crown, or messy impression putty!
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 your natural tooth structure.
Strength/Accuracy: The durability and fit of the ceramic material is so precise, your smile will stay beautiful and last for many years!The CEREC© process:
During your exam, your doctor will determine if a CEREC restoration is right for you. Your doctor will also discuss the details of the procedure and can answer any questions you may have. There are three main phases to the fabrication of your CEREC restoration:
- 1. Tooth preparation phase – this process involves removing decay, old/failing filling material and rebuilding the foundation of the tooth with new material.
- 2. Scan/Design Phase – this process involves taking an “optical impression” of your prepared tooth with a high-quality digital camera scan. The images captured from the scan are converted by the computer and advanced software to create a three-dimensional virtual model of your prepared tooth and all the surrounding teeth to ensure a comprehensive collection of data to help in the designing of your crown.
- 3. Milling Phase – The milling unit actually manufactures the custom restoration from the specifications entered into the computer. A ceramic block is placed into the milling unit and within minutes, the milling device produces the restoration the dentist designed!
