How Does CEREC Work
Benefits of CEREC Dentistry
Traditional restorative procedures require multiple visits where the patient is subjected to messy impressions, extensive preparation, uncomfortable temporaries and the time involved in having an outside laboratory produce the restoration.
With the CEREC system, teeth can be restored in a single visit. After the tooth is prepared, a special camera takes an optical impression of the tooth, recording its exact specifications. Using the CAD/CAM software, the restoration is digitally prepared and then sent to a milling machine where the restoration is created using the finest, tooth colored ceramic material. In just a few minutes, the restoration is ready and checked for a perfect fit. Then, it is permanently bonded or cemented to your tooth and gently polished to a beautiful shine.
CEREC uses materials that are closely matched to the composition of natural tooth structure. The ceramic materials are strong and tooth colored to restore teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function.
