Have you thought about getting a dental restoration, but were worried about how long it might take? Traditionally, getting many types of dental restorations has been a fairly long process. Custom restorations needed to be milled at a dental lab, a process that could take days or even weeks. In the meantime, patients needed to be given temporary restorations which were sometimes uncomfortable. Fortunately, those days are behind us thanks to CEREC® technology.
CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, is a cutting-edge method used to make a variety of dental restorations in a single day. Essentially this means that you could come in for crowns or veneers and be done with the entire process in one visit, instead of the multiple visits previously needed. It is a phenomenal development in restorative dentistry.
CEREC uses CAD-CAM technology to design and mill your custom restoration while you wait. In place of a typical impression, we make a 3D digital image that is converted into a virtual model. Then a custom crown or veneer is milled right in our office based on this model. It can then be bonded to your tooth, and you are able to walk out with a brand-new smile that very day.
CEREC technology has revolutionized the process of restoring teeth. You no longer have to wait to get the smile you’ve been dreaming of. To learn more about CEREC and the restorative techniques we utilize at All Care Dentistry, please call our Murray, UT, office today.
