CHAIRSIDE ECONOMICAL RESTORATIONS OF ESTHETIC CERAMIC

CEREC has changed the way we do dentistry. This system is the most accurate and simple of its kind. No more need for waiting days to get veneers, crowns, bridges and even inlays done, this office CAD-CAM system allows us to get more accurate impressions which leads to more accurate restorations. Cerec uses Lithium Disilicate ceramics, the hardest and purest Ceramics, to mill the right restoration for you in a matter of minutes.

CAD-CAM is short for Computer Assisted Design and Computer Assisted Milling. The system comprises three components:

  1. The Acquisition device- This device takes high-definition photos of the prepared tooth or abutment and creates a 3-dimensional image on the screen. This image is then used in conjunction with the Computer Assisted Design system to design the perfect-looking and fitting ceramic restoration. Your restoration can then be examined from every angle and allows the dentist to make alterations depending on the patient and dentist’s desires.
  2. The Milling unit- Once the restoration is perfect, the dentist decides on a color that will match your existing teeth and/or your desires, and the correct ceramic block is then placed inside the milling unit. After a matter of 15 minutes, your restoration is complete but still in an unpolymerized state, meaning that it is not yet as hard and strong as wanted, final alterations are made at this stage inside the mouth. The restoration is then stained and placed inside the oven.
  3. The Oven- This is an amazing piece of equipment, for 15 minutes your restoration is heated at up to 870 C, this polymerizes the ceramic giving it the desired color and hardness. Once it is cooled off, it is placed inside the mouth with dental resin cement and after being allowed to set for 10 minutes you can go forth and know this treatment will not fail you, giving you not only peace of mind but also great esthetics.
