If you need dental crowns, inlays, onlays, or veneers yet want these restorations done in one day, choose CEREC®. The Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) technology uses advanced techniques to provide you with dental crowns in a single dentist’s appointment. A doctor who’s trained for CEREC uses CAD/CAM digital technology and a milling machine to make fast dental restorations possible. This allows both the dentist and patient to save a great deal of time. CEREC® in Tucson, AZ is available at Creative Smiles.
How Does CEREC® Make One-Visit Restorations Possible?
First, the patient needs to set an appointment for dental evaluation and treatment planning. The dentist examines his oral cavity and may perform deep cleanings and an x-ray. He is then scheduled for another office visit for his dental restoration.
One visit dental restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers are possible because CEREC® takes your dental impression, creates a design, fabricates the restoration, and bonds the restoration onto your teeth all in one day. First, your digital impression is taken. This digital model of your teeth is then fed to a computer that will create the design of your restoration. The dentist analyzes this design and applies improvements only when needed. The final design is then fed to a milling unit for the fabrication of your dental restoration. This manufacturing process will only take minutes to complete. Before you know it, the dentist bonds the permanent restoration on your teeth, and you walk out of our office with your teeth fully restored.
Why is CEREC® so Much Better than Traditional Restorations?
CEREC® is a great improvement over traditional restorations because it involves great precision and accuracy. From the time the digital image of your teeth is taken up to fabrication of your restoration, the process is computer assisted; thus greatly minimizing any margin of error. Most often, the restoration design created by the computer requires zero to very minimal touchups from the dentist. With CEREC, you’re guaranteed restorations that fit perfectly.
Additionally, CEREC® also doesn’t require you to wear temporary restorations because these are created and then bonded onto your teeth in one appointment. You won’t feel the discomfort of wearing uncomfortable temporaries as you walk out of the dental office with your permanent restorations in place.
Most importantly, CEREC® is so much better than traditional restorations because it requires less of your time. You only need to make one appointment for restorative dentistry. Your dentist, on the other hand, can attend to a greater number of patients who need his services. CEREC simply brings everyone convenience!
