CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.
What is the Process of Getting a CEREC Crown?
This procedure by Dr. Pan is a one-visit crown. The placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple and fast!
The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth. The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture.
The digital camera takes an image. Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you. Once the design is completed, the CEREC will mill the restoration. This step takes approximately 15 minutes. You can actually watch this process if you would like.
When the restoration is finished milling, Dr. Pan will place the restoration. The entire process should take just over an hour. It's that simple!!
Digital Impression System
Older patients surely remember the days of having to sit still in the dentist’s chair while their mouth was filled with a tray of messy impression material. Not only was this experience uncomfortable, but it often resulted in inaccurate results and time-consuming retakes to boot. Today, the Pan Dental Care team has invested in a far superior technique – CEREC Omni Cam.
This state-of-the-art technology captures three-dimensional images of the patient’s dental structures with the help of a small wand that’s moved throughout the mouth. This means there’s NO physical contact required and NO unpleasant threat of gagging for the patient.
