Today's technology is impacting dentistry in many ways. One of these breakthrough innovations is called CEREC. It allows to restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic crowns in one visit, saving you time and inconvenience.
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. The dentists at Creative Dimensions in Dentistry use a special camera to take an accurate picture of your tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where we use 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology to design the restoration. Then CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) takes over and automatically creates the restoration while you wait. Finally, our doctors bond the new restoration to the surface of your old tooth. The whole process takes only about 1-2 hours!
What does this mean for you?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The material is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. There is no need to take impressions to send to a lab, which means no need for a temporary crown. CEREC has over 3 decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.
