Modern technology in tooth restoration now allows for precise computer aided restorations to be made in one single visit rather than the two or three visits previously required. CEREC is a leading computer aided restoration system allowing patients to achieve natural looking, white and durable teeth while protecting and preserving the tooth’s structural integrity. Perfect white fillings, veneers or crowns can be implemented quickly and effectively in a single visit.
The tooth is prepared by removing decay and leaving as much of the healthy tooth as possible to support the restoration. The CEREC 3D camera creates a digital model of your tooth. Using this image the dentist is able to design your new restoration on a computer screen. A solid block of porcelain ceramic is inserted into the machine and sculpted to an exact match of the computer designed tooth. The newly sculpted restoration is securely bonded to the tooth providing a long lasting, aesthetically pleasing result.
If you require restorations, call our experienced team for more information or to schedule an appointment.
