What is CEREC?
CEREC technology has revolutionized the dental field and has created a way for patients to receive crowns without any downtime in between appointments.
The acronym stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and uses 3D photography as well as CAD/CAM technology to create virtual restorations. Instead of taking impressions of teeth and sending them to a lab for creation, CEREC technology creates impressions digitally and is able to transfer the impressions to a milling machine.
The milling machine uses the digital impressions from the CAD scanner to craft a customized restoration from a block of ceramic material. The entire procedure takes place in a single dental appointment.
CEREC Restorations are Located in Charlottesville!
The implementation of your CEREC restoration will depend on your desired procedure, but it is likely that your targeted teeth will be prepared and cleaned. Once your existing teeth have been prepared, your digital impressions will be transferred to the milling machine where your crown is produced.
Your CEREC restoration will first be placed in order to ensure proper fit. Afterwards, the restoration is polished and cemented into place. Patients can now receive dental restorations that are high quality, minimally invasive, and affordable. Your procedure will be completed in one visit, with the same laboratory-generated results as traditional crowns.
