CEREC technology allows us to create strong, customized, tooth colored ceramic restorations right here at the office, usually within a single appointment. No temporary or second visit is required and the esthetics are beautiful.
In the course of one visit, we can diagnose and prepare your damaged tooth, create an optical impression of the tooth, and use CEREC to design and mill a precise restoration, which is then permanently bonded to your tooth.
A crown is a restoration that covers the entire tooth surface and restores the tooth to its original size and shape. A CEREC restoration by Sirona Dental is the world’s first CAD/CAM restorative technology. Backed by more than 250 clinical studies over the last 20 years, CEREC has provided dental restorative solutions to million of patients worldwide.
With the use of CEREC, you can be in and out most of the time in a single visit with a permanent restoration. For our patients, this means no temporaries, no impressions, and less time out of your busy schedule for your dental care. This is why millions of patients are choosing CEREC restorations.
After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, we will prepare your tooth for restoration, similarly to traditional treatment methods. Your prepared tooth will be coated with a safe, tasteless powder. CEREC then uses a state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression. This digital image replaces the physical impression required in traditional procedures. No more long waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.
State-of-the-art CAD software allows us to design every precise detail of your restoration with the accuracy you’ve come to expect from us. The software allows us to customize the shape of the restoration to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.
While you wait, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration. About 10 minutes later, your all-ceramic, color-matched restoration is ready for placement. Your new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.
