The CEREC Process
First, your doctor will meet with you to discuss the details of the procedure. During the procedure, the doctor will apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using Computer Aided Design, the photo serves as a “map” to design your tooth’s restoration. Then, CEREC will use a diamond bur and disk-work to create your restoration piece out of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, which can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
Advanced Dental Materials
Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC®, Dr. Moroni can use strong, tooth colored ceramic to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates, reducing the likelihood of fractures. The restoration is also chemically bonded to your tooth, resulting in a stronger, healthier tooth.
Single Appointment Dental Care
Most dental crowns or "caps" require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary taken off and have a permanent restoration bonded to the tooth.
With CEREC®, Dr. Moroni performs the entire procedure in just a single appointment from start to finish. No impressions, no temps – just beautiful, tooth colored restorations in one visit! Request an appointment.
