What Are CEREC Crowns?
Repairing your tired, worn or damaged smile is an important part of improving your overall oral health and looking and feeling great. However, in the past, porcelain dental restorations were a hassle, requiring at least two dental appointments and the help of a dental laboratory. CEREC technology cuts down the time needed to create dental restorations and even eliminates the laboratory step altogether. Learn more about CEREC with Complete Family Dentistry in Waukesha, WI.
What is CEREC?
CEREC uses high-tech CAD/CAM technology to take a 3D rendering of your tooth and uses the rendering with CEREC’s computer program to design a porcelain dental restoration. This system, a state-of-the-art step for dental technology, cuts out the need for a dental laboratory, eliminating the several weeks previously required to create a dental restoration.
How can CEREC benefit me?
CEREC porcelain dental restorations benefit both the patient and their dentist. CEREC eliminates the need for a dental laboratory, saving time, money and saving you a trip. The laboratory requires about two weeks to create a dental restoration, a task that CEREC accomplishes in only one visit. CEREC’s quality materials ensure that your restoration will last many years.
CEREC Dental Restorations in Waukesha, WI
CEREC’s system has three main parts: a wand for gathering the data for the 3D rendering from your teeth, a computer program operated by your dentist and a carving machine which creates your actual restoration from a block of ceramic. The whole process takes only about an hour and your dentist can complete the restoration while you wait during your appointment. After creating the actual prosthetic, your dentist will ensure it fits correctly and blends into your smile.
