How Can I Get A One Day Crown With CEREC?
CEREC is used as an acronym for ceramic reconstruction and refers to the designing and making of one day crowns. It’s high quality and metal-free dental restoration. Originally developed in 1980 with no practical use until 1985, CEREC was developed by Sirona and uses 3D technology along with CAD/CAM technology to assist the dentist in designing restorations without using impressions. Newer models that have been used since 2010 take virtual impressions and the CEREC restorations last a really long time. It works with inlays, onlays, bridges, and crowns. It’s able to build the actual restoration while you wait in the chair.
CEREC crowns have all of the same benefits of traditional crowns plus a little extra benefit.
How It Works And What To Expect At Your Appointment
CEREC technology greatly simplifies the process of creating and placing a crown. The process begins with the restoration area being photographed and stored as a three-dimensional model digitally.
A proprietary software then is used to determine and create the restored shape using biogeneric comparisons to surrounding teeth. The dentist will then refine the model using 3D CAD software.
Once the model is finished, a milling machine will be used to carve the restoration out of a ceramic block with diamond head cutters using computer control. When complete, the restoration is placed within the mouth and is then bonded to the tooth using a resin. A one day crown is a perfect option for patients wanting a quick and worry-free session.
