What is CEREC dentistry?
CEREC® dentistry is a new technology used in the making of dental reconstructions. The acronym CEREC® is actually a contraction of two terms — the first one being Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics while the second one is Ceramic Reconstruction. While these two terms may be different, they both point to the same thing which is basically the creation of ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers. But because CEREC® technology makes use of CAD/CAM technology as well as digital imaging, the process is therefore faster.
How is the procedure done?
There are a couple of things which a patient would still have to go through even when opting for CEREC® technology, and that is the preparation of the tooth. The tooth will have to be shaved off in order for the restoration to be bonded into place in a more seamless manner. After this is done, Dr. Fleming will then take a photo of the tooth which will readily be converted into a 3D image. Right after this is done, he can make blueprints of your soon to be reconstruction with the help of CAD/CAM technology.
What makes CEREC® dentistry unique?
What sets apart CEREC® dentistry from the rest of the services which are being offered by dentists is the fact that everything can be done in just one visit to the dentist, hence the term “One Visit Crowns“. For individuals who are in a hurry because they have an important event to go to, i.e. their wedding, as well as those who cannot afford to go off from work for a second time, CEREC® dentistry is a very alluring option for them. At the same time, the expediency of the job eliminates any need for dental temporaries to be installed.
