Cad Cam and CEREC Technology Available

If you are in need of a crown, you might be concerned about the length of time and preparation work that it takes to get a traditional crown. Luckily, there are CEREC crowns, which are done in a single visit at your dentist’s office. This is done by using advanced CAD/CAM technology to image the tooth and create a long lasting crown restoration that is ready within a couple hours.

 

The Procedure

As opposed to needing to prepare your natural teeth with impressions, digital impressions are taken of the tooth. The CEREC technology allows this to be done quickly and easily. Once the image is taken, the CAD-CAM machine creates a model which can be adjusted by the dentist. The dentist has the ability to see exactly what the crown will look like in the patient’s mouth – in 3D!

 

What is CEREC®?

CEREC is a medical technology for repairing teeth in just one visit. This means that there’s no need for gummy impression material or temporary teeth after the treatment. The materials are metal-free, and they are compatible with natural tissue found in the mouth, which makes them highly resilient and natural-looking.

The CEREC® Process

During your appointment, you’ll discuss the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Once everything’s set, the doctor will use a special 3D imaging camera to take pictures of your teeth. With the help of CEREC’s proprietary software, they’ll design a restoration that fits your form and function just right. They’ll then use diamond burs to create a seamless ceramic restoration for you. The final step is bonding it onto your tooth with an adhesive that creates a long-lasting bond between the two surfaces.

Why Choose CEREC®?

CEREC offers many benefits over traditional dental crowns.

Time: CEREC crowns are completely made in one visit, saving you time away from your family and work.

Comfort: With CEREC, you won’t need a temporary crown in order to prevent discomfort. Keep your mouth healthy with CEREC!

Aesthetics: The strong and tooth-colored materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. In other words, your teeth will look natural – instead of yellow or off-white – while also functioning like they usually would.

Strength: Your smile deserves the best! Traditional teeth whitening treatments can be short-lived. Milled ceramic, on the other hand, is stronger than traditional layering methods, so your smile will last for years instead of short months.

Fillings: CEREC can be used for not just crowns, but also fillings. With this treatment, you’ll get a dental filling made of porcelain, which is more durable than white composite fillings.
