CEREC Dentistry CEREC is a state-of-the-art hi-tech system that we employ to capture and create a three-dimensional digital model of your tooth. This allows us to design a highly precise porcelain restoration that can be used to replace a missing portion of a chipped tooth, fill an area of a tooth affected by decay, or craft a porcelain crown. CEREC restorations are able to restore your smile in a natural, durable and aesthetically pleasing manner. CEREC is more efficient and convenient than conventional dentistry. A CEREC porcelain restoration can usually be designed, milled and fitted in the space of a single appointment. Why CEREC? • Protects and preserves the structural integrity of your teeth • Ceramic/porcelain is bio-compatible • Only one appointment is required to create, manufacture and bond the restoration • Perfect cosmesis • Perfect comfort • Perfect quality • Long lasting and durable • Most cost effective restoration that modern dentistry offers today What’s involved? Step 1: • The defective filling and areas of tooth decay are removed. • The tooth is then prepared for scanning. A reflective powder layer is applied to the tooth destined for imaging. Step 2: • An optical three-dimensional image of the tooth is acquired with a small camera placed directly in your mouth. • The restoration is designed by software using the data obtained from the three-dimensional image of your tooth. • Diamond coated instruments mill the restoration from a solid block of porcelain to reproduce the design. This is usually accomplished during a single dental appointment using Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM). • Perfectly bonded porcelain ensures an extremely long life for your teeth. Step 3: • In the hands of an expert dentist, the CEREC restoration is fitted perfectly to your tooth. • The new restoration is polished prior to fitting. Polishing or glazing ensures a pleasantly smooth and natural feel. • The CEREC restoration is cemented to your tooth. A unique light hardens the bonding material, uniting porcelain and tooth. • The colour and appearance make the special ceramic material blend with your tooth and complete your smile.
