CEREC Technology

 1

 

Just think. A few short years ago if you had to have a crown done you’d have to come in twice to get it made and cemented. Today, with the aid of CEREC CAD-CAM technology you can have your crown and eat with it too, on the same day.

The process involves the taking of optical impressions and not the tray full of impression material that invariably runs down your throat.

What does it involve?

• An optical 3D image of your tooth with a small camera is first taken.
• The restoration is created on screen using the image data.
• Diamond coated instruments then mill a ceramic block to reproduce the design.

• The restoration is test fitted and adjusted as necessary, then stained and glazed to a glass like finish.
• The restoration is then bonded into your tooth using a special cement that is hardened with a  unique light. This unites the porcelain and the tooth making for a very strong restoration which can restore your tooth up to 90% of its’ original strength.
• The color and appearance of an all ceramic restoration blends perfectly with your tooth. No more unsightly dark lines at the gumline.

 

Why CEREC?

• Protects and preserves your own tooth’s structural integrity.
• Ceramics are bio-compatible.
• Only one appointment.
• Perfect looks.
• Perfect comfort.
• Perfect quality.
• Long lasting and durable.
