A digital impression is taken using an image-acquisition device that has an intraoral camera. This device is connected to a special processing computer which in turn is connected to a machine that takes the impressions and creates the restorative piece, matched to fit exactly.
In about five to 15 minutes, the machine generates the ceramic piece and the dentist can then apply the finishing touches by painting, polishing, and glazing it. The veneer or crown will then be cemented to your problem tooth.
Benefits of CEREC®
Besides the obvious benefit of extremely fast dental repairs, CEREC® has a number of other advantages:
Minimizes discomfort: The need for a temporary crown is eliminated when you use CEREC®, which means there’s less concern about potentially significant discomfort while you wait for a permanent tooth repair.
Compatible and attractive: CEREC® crowns are metal-free. This makes them compatible for more patients, plus the crowns look natural and aesthetically pleasing to patients who are already stressed out about their damaged smile.
Extremely durable: CEREC® material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since they are made out of porcelain, CEREC® restorations are just as durable as, if not more so, white composite fillings.
Less time-consuming: A one-visit tooth restoration means you will have fewer dental visits to worry about fitting into your busy schedule.
The efficiency and quality of CEREC® cannot be disputed. These restorations are permanent and can last up to seven years with the proper care; some last much longer. The longevity of your smile all depends on your willingness to tend to your teeth every day and keep up with professional dental cleanings and exams.
