Do I need multiple visits to your Provo Dentist Office for a Dental Crown or Bridge?
The short answer is NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! We are proud to provide Sirona Dental CEREC 3D Technology to our patients, who are in need of restorations. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to complete a restoration, such as crowns or bridges.
What are the Advantages of CEREC Technology?
CEREC Technology can design, fabricate and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit! With this new system, the need for temporary devices or impressions is eliminated, which is a great time saver.
What is the Procedure for a Dental Restoration with a CEREC Machine?
CEREC Technology first removes the decay and/or old filling in the tooth under restoration. The teeth are then prepared with a thin coat of reflective powder, and a specialized digital 3D camera creates a precise digital image of the teeth. This state-of-the-art system replaces the need for messy, cumbersome traditional impressions.
The computer-aided design (CAD) software then enables us to design and create a restorative piece specific to the patient’s dental needs. These highly durable restorations can also be color-matched to the patient’s teeth for a more natural looking smile.
We will then attach the restoration to the tooth and check the position, placement and bite function. When you leave, you already have your permanent restoration, there is no need for temporaries or further follow-up appointments to fit a more permanent device.
How is the Quality of a CEREC Created Restoration?
All CEREC restorations are made from natural-looking, tooth-colored porcelain material that is metal-free, very bio-compatible and plaque-resistant. In many cases, more healthy tooth structure can be saved, since the restoration can be used in place of a full crown.
What are some other Advantages of CEREC?
Other CEREC advantages over conventional restoration systems include the entire process is usually completed in less than an hour and there are fewer injections administered due to the decrease in need for local anesthetic during the process.
