CEREC is a technology that uses an onsite 3D milling machine to make your dental restorations (inlays and Crowns) while you wait, with high-precision results. CEREC makes use of CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology that makes it possible for the dental restoration to be created chairside, eliminating the need for dental impressions and dramatically cutting the time for the dental treatment to be completed.
With CEREC technology, you can restore your damaged teeth with tooth-coloured inlays, and dental crowns, in just one dental appointment. You can enjoy all of the benefits of the teeth restorations in the most efficient, precise, and safest manner – and emerge from the dentist’s office with a healthy, natural-looking smile you will be proud to flash whenever you wish to!
Don’t you just hate the long waiting time for your dental restoration to be completed? Now you can have white inlays, and dental crowns, in just 90 minutes with CEREC technology!
The CEREC technology uses a cutting-edge machine that includes a camera, a milling machine, and a computer to complete the white inlays and crowns treatment. The dentist will use the intraoral camera to get precise images of the damaged tooth; the images that the camera captures will automatically be sent to the computer.
The dentist will then use CAD/CAM technology to design and create the actual dental inlay or dental crowns while you wait. The white inlay will be bonded to the affected tooth, providing you with a natural-looking smile once more, after just a single dental appointment.
The dental crowns will also be created, designed, and manufactured chairside while you wait; there is no need to wait for a long time for the permanent dental crown to be attached, and no need to endure the discomfort that a temporary crown can bring.
