What Is CEREC
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction) is an innovative dental technology that makes full teeth restorations possible for our dentists to accomplish in a single visit. Using three-dimensional photography and CAD/CAM software to produce indirect porcelain restorations, CEREC does away with multiple visits often associated with the installation of crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers. Compared with earlier techniques, CEREC makes treatment easier and much more convenient.
Single-Visit Dental Appointments
Many restorative dentistry procedures require multiple visits to complete treatment. The first session normally involves the injection of anesthetics, tooth preparation and impressions, and the installation of temporary restorations. You will then have to schedule another appointment a few weeks later to get the same procedure; the only difference is the installation of a permanent solution. Save time with CEREC one-visit crowns, inlays, onlays or veneers. Here at Paramount Dental Center, we help our patients restore the natural strength, beauty and functionality of their teeth in just one visit!
Use of the Finest Dental Materials
The materials used for CEREC match the composition of natural teeth, allowing for almost natural functionality in every aspect. For example, restorations expand and contract at almost equal rates when you consume hot or cold food and drink items. The materials chemically bond to your tooth, allowing us to save as much healthy structure as possible. At the same time, the dental restoration helps strengthen your tooth.
The process begins with photography and the creation of a three-dimensional digital model of the cavity. When these two elements are ready, we use the CEREC software and biogenetic comparisons of neighboring teeth to approximate and generate the restoration’s shape. Once the design phase is complete, we wirelessly send the information to the milling unit that produces the restoration from a solid block of porcelain ceramic. The finished product is the restoration we bond to your tooth using resin cement.
