Crown in One Visit!
We are very proud to be able to offer you one of the world’s most advanced dental restoration systems. With the Cerec 3D™ system we can manufacture lifelike porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays, and fillings right here in our office.
CEREC is derived from CEramic REConstruction:
The replacement of missing tooth structure with ceramic material.
Previously, tooth reconstruction required at least two or three appointments, involved putty impressions that were sent to a laboratory and patients having to go home with plastic temporary restorations. Now, with the Cerec 3D system, the whole procedure can take place in one office visit.
Cerec 3D uses Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology.
With a special digital scanner we take an accurate optical impression and obtain a 360° perspective of your mouth. With our direction the CAM program will precision-mill the restoration from a porcelain block. Because the scan offers such exceptional detail, the Cerec 3D is able to create an extremely accurate restoration with virtually no gap through which bacteria can penetrate and cause dental decay.
Our final step is to polish and bond your finished restoration in place. It's as easy as that!
