Restoring your teeth and your smile can be a time-consuming process. It used to require multiple trips to your dentist in order to get a crown, an inlay or onlay. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Thanks to innovative dental technology there’s a better way to tackle dental emergencies. CEREC allows you to undergo restorative dental procedures without any hassles.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction. CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology. With the help of CEREC, dentists can now take your dental impressions quicker and deliver same-day treatments.
How CEREC Helps Your Restorative Dental Experience
In today’s busy world, people don’t have the time to make multiple visits to the dentist. This is where CEREC comes in. CEREC gives you the ultimate luxury, convenience. Most treatments like fitting a crown require two or more trips to the dentist, however, with CEREC, you can walk home with a shining new crown on the same day.
Not only is CEREC faster, but it is also more durable. CEREC uses a single block of solid ceramic materials instead of pressed ceramic and metal. This essentially translates to a more durable and long-lasting restoration. Whether you are using CEREC for your front teeth or your back teeth, you are assured of a both visually and structurally sound treatment.
Gone are the days of waiting for your permanent restoration to arrive from a lab and then dealing with scheduling hassles. With CEREC, you are able to make use of the available technology right in your dentist’s office. Not only does it free up the dentist’s time, but it also makes for a far better experience for a patient. CEREC is also ideal for those undergoing a dental emergency and needs restorations at the earliest.
The color of CEREC restorations is more in-line with the natural color of your teeth, thus giving it a more natural look than traditional ceramic restorations. With CEREC, you no longer have to worry about spending your precious time running between your dentist’s office, instead, you can spend it with our family, creating memories and clicking the perfect pictures while flashing your newly found CEREC smile.
