Damaged teeth are both a dreadful and inconvenient experience for anyone. It usually takes at least two dental visits to restore it. Permanent restorations or fillings may be placed for the meantime, but it is not much preferable especially for those who are usually busy at work or school. Thanks to the latest advancements in Dentistry, now comes a dental treatment to provide faster yet effective results in a day! We at Greenfield Family Dentistry provides CEREC services for the comfort and convenience of our patients.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a procedure where a dentist can complete a dental restoration procedure in a day. Patients would not experience any hassles in having their teeth done. It uses porcelain materials for the dental appliance that are used to restore not only the teeth’s appearance but also its function.
How Does CEREC Work?
- Same with other dental treatments, CEREC starts with a consultation with the dentist. It is to make sure that the dental appliance to be placed will be effective in restoring the patient’s teeth.
- One advantage of CEREC is it does not require messy impression mold to get the accurate measurement for the prosthesis. A digital camera can instantly and accurately produce an image that is seen on a chairside monitor.
- Once the impression is ready, it will serve as the model of the customized treatment plan for the patient. As soon as it is ready, the design is transferred to a computer-automated milling machine (CAM).
- It would not take too long for the dental appliance to be created.
