Everyone wants the perfect smile. That smile that makes everyone stare. But it isn’t easy for most of us to attain naturally. Accidents happen and a lot of times our smiles take the brunt of it all. But it isn’t the end of the world. CEREC®, allows our doctors to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience.
CEREC® is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit with fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. We no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated.
But now that we have a general understanding, how does it work? The tooth that requires a CEREC® restoration is prepared and a 3D photograph is taken of the prepared tooth. From there, we use computer-aided design CAD software to create the restoration digitally. Using a single block of porcelain that is color-matched to your current tooth shade, the digitally designed restoration is sent to a milling machine where your restoration is cut. The milling process usually takes about 15 minutes per restoration. Once the restoration is finished being milled, it is fitted onto the prepared tooth and adjusted until the bite is accurate.
This procedure is great for dental crowns, veneers and the replacement of old fillings to give you the longest-lasting, best-looking results. So, what are you waiting for? Get that smile you’ve always wanted today!
