CEREC is a state-of-the-art dental technology that is used to create restorations for decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. Some of the restorations that our dentist may create using this technology include:
- Dental crowns
- Dental inlays and onlays
- Dental veneers
CEREC restorations are typically made of compressed porcelain or another tooth-colored material. When you receive a CEREC restoration, our dentist will begin by removing all traces of decay and damage to the tooth. The tooth will then be shaped in preparation for the restoration. We then use CEREC imaging technology to capture a digital picture of the tooth, which appears on the computer monitor as a 3D image.
Using this 3D image, we can design your dental crown or other restoration to your unique specifications while you watch. After completing your design, we will send it to the CEREC machine to be milled. The milling process will take about 15 minutes to complete. After the restoration is complete, our dentist will carefully place it on your tooth and check that it fits properly. The restoration will then be bonded into place and polished to complete your treatment. This entire process takes about one hour.
Benefits of CEREC restorations include:
- Reduced treatment time
- No need for messy or goopy impressions
- Enhanced comfort during your appointment
- Naturally beautiful and long-lasting results
