A new state of the art method of reconstructing tooth restorations his called Chairside Economical Restorations of Aesthetic Ceramic or CEREC. CEREC uses CAD (Computer-Assisted Design) and CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) which allows for a single day restoration. Traditionally a patient has to wait two weeks for a crown to be molded, created, and sent back to the office. Now crowns and veneers can be created same-day, eliminating the need for a second appointment.
CEREC Is a revolutionary restorative process, here are some of the benefits:
CEREC uses CAD/CAM Technology in only one visit to design and create custom restorations. First of all, you will have an examination and Dr. Linty will determine if this process is right for you.
A 3-dimensional image of your tooth will be created from a digital scan. This image will create the necessary foundation and impression in order to create the restoration without the need to take a messy impression. The computer and software then convert the digital image into a 3 dimensional model of your tooth.
The milling unit is a device that is used to create the custom restoration. Dr. Linty will select the correct color ceramic block and within minutes will be able to place the milled tooth into your mouth and adjust it accordingly so that your bite will be perfect.
Placing and Restoration
After your new crown has been created, it is ready to be bonded and polished and your bite will be adjusted as necessary. One of the great benefits of this is no need of a temporary restoration and no need of a return trip which will save you time, pain and money.
If you were found yourself in need of a crown or veneer, make sure you call Dr. Linty at Lyons Dental.
Today, there's no need to merely imagine how nice it would be to have a dental crown fabricated in a single visit. With CEREC technology and advanced systems of care, multiple trips to the dentist are a thing of the past! Now, one appointment is all it takes for our skilled and experienced dentist to design, fabricate, and place a naturally beautiful and long-lasting same-day crown. And, best of all, unlike conventional methods of care, you won't have to endure messy dental impressions, wear a temporary crown, or wait weeks for your permanent restoration to come back from the laboratory.
Offering a level of precision and comfort that exceeds conventional methods of care, CEREC technology is nothing short of amazing! Advanced CAD/CAM technology, which stands for computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, enables our dentist to translate images from an optically scan tooth into a 3D virtual model upon which a custom crown can be digitally designed. Once this step is done, the detailed specs are then wirelessly transmitted to a chairside 3D milling machine to fabricate your new ceramic crown while you wait!
With conventional methods of care, a dental crown can take two to three visits to fabricate and place. However, thanks to the benefits of CEREC technology, we can prepare a tooth, then design, fabricate, and place your new crown, all while you wait.
With CEREC same-day crowns, there's none of the mess of conventional dental impressions, wearing dental temporaries, or waiting for the final crown to come back from the lab. Once the prepared tooth is optically scanned and the restoration digitally designed, your new crown can be milled from the highest quality of dental ceramics that very same visit.
CEREC same-day crowns and restorations are fabricated from the highest quality of dental ceramics. Because dental porcelain reflects light in much the same way as dental enamel, your new crown will look flawless, completely natural, and blend seamlessly with your smile.
A CEREC same-day crown offers much more than a convenient approach to getting a dental crown. It is also a high quality, naturally beautiful, extremely durable, and long-lasting dental restoration! The fact is, with proper oral hygiene and routine dental care your new crown will serve your smile well for many years to come.
