CEREC, by Sirona Dental Systems, is the world’s first system for the fabrication of all-ceramic dental restorations in one office visit, for most cases. With CEREC at your dentist’s side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic crown or onlay! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. So, it makes sense that thousands of people worldwide choose the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs.
Single Appointment Dental Care
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth is prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration is placed on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, and get an injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment – start to finish for most cases.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, we can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials 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.
Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of nearly 20 years, this equipment has helped dentists place over 6 million restorations. Using metal-free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC gives you the highest quality restorative care. Ask your dentist today about single visit CEREC restorative care!
