One of the most notable advances in dental technology is called CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). It is a technology that allows your dentist to restore your smile in the same visit rather than having to come back for a second appointment. CEREC is a convenient treatment available to patients of the Grateful Dentists in Billerica, MA.
A dental restoration is any device or structure meant to rebuild and shore up an existing tooth, or created to replace a missing tooth. Common restorations include dental crowns, veneers, fillings, and bridges. They add to your smile by giving it renewed strength and an improved appearance. Most modern restorations are made of quality porcelain material, but they can also be crafted from a ceramic material.
What Is CEREC?
Usually, it takes weeks for a dental restoration to be created in a lab after your impressions are made. With CEREC your dentist can create it “on the fly” while you wait in the chair. After the tooth is prepared, a CAD/CAM image is taken and loaded into the system. A piece of raw material is inserted into the CEREC device that now has information about the shape of your tooth. The machine cuts a new dental crown or veneer that’s designed just for you.
