CEREC 3D – CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

Featured image

Did you know CEREC 3D restoration services are a cutting edge technology?  This is a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic restoration, made right in the dental office. I am so proud to be using cutting edge technology to manufacture lifelike porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays right in our office.

Though this technology can’t be used for every restoration, when CEREC 3D can be used, it allows us to create strong, customized, tooth-colored ceramic restorations right here in our office, usually within a single appointment

Here is how it works.  After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, I will prepare your tooth for restoration, similar to traditional treatment methods. CEREC then uses a state-of-the-art 3D camera to create an optical impression.  This digital image replaces the physical “goopy” impression required in traditional procedures.  You don’t have to wait while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.

I then use state-of-the-art software to design every precise detail of your restoration with the accuracy you’ve come to expect from us.  The software allows me to customize the shape of the restoration to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.

While you wait, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration.  About 15 minutes later, your all-ceramic color-matched restoration is ready for placement.  Your new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence.  Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.
