Posted on: April 16, 2018

Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic, or CEREC, is the fastest tooth restoration procedure available to patients today. With other procedures, you have to make multiple visits to your dentist, as they first need to take an impression of your teeth and then send it to the lab so that you can get your crown fixed in another appointment. Moreover, you have to wait while the crown is being made and prepared. Luckily for you, CEREC reduces the time required for restoring your teeth, helping you save time and hassle, and restoring the appearance and function of your pearly whites.

Digital Imagery

With CEREC, on the other hand, you do not have to go through all these hassles. All you need to do is sit in your dentist's chair as they take digital images of your teeth with the Omnicom. Yes, that's right no more tooth impressions. The photos help the dentist to make an accurate fit for your teeth. They even take images with your mouth closed so that the will crown fit when you bite. Once the crown is ready, the dentists take more images of the mouth to check the model for accuracy.

They use the digital images to create the best shape for your teeth and even propose restoration with the images. It helps them identify the problems if any. The software creates the appropriate size and the shape of the tooth that will fit you best. The dentist may make minor adjustments to the design to make sure the bite is comfortable. Adjustments are also important because the crown will be in contact with them

Milling and Baking

A porcelain block goes inside the milling machine. The job of this machine is to carve out the shape of the crown based on the digital images. It takes approximately eight to fifteen minutes for the machine to carve out your crown. After the milling process is complete, the dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown. They polish the new crown to smooth out any rough edges and shade it to a color that looks natural with the rest of your teeth. The crown is then baked in the oven to harden it up for durability. It takes almost 15 to 20 minutes for the crown to harden and rake a natural color. After etching of the crown, it is ready to be placed and fixed on top of your damaged teeth.

Bottom Line:

This entire procedure of taking imagery, defining the shape of the crown, milling and baking it, along with cementing it into place does not take more than two hours. And all you need to do is sit back and see how they make your tooth. In just two hours you can walk out of the dentist's office with a perfect smile. The best part is that these ceramic implants are very hard, so you do not even have to worry about the food you eat. You can enjoy your favorite cuisine after just one day at Modern Dentistry.
