In the past the fabrication and application of a dental crown would mean several trips to the dentist. Thanks to an innovative new method known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), your dental crown can be molded, made and fitted all in one visit. CEREC is a one-stop solution to restoring your teeth back to their natural state. This technology has been proven by hundreds of clinical studies and has been chosen as a preferred solution by dentists for over 20 years. Millions of patients worldwide now enjoy beautifully restored teeth thanks to CEREC technology.
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer aided manufacturing) technology to make a digital impression of the patient’s mouth, design and manufacture the restoration with the aid of a computer. The technology allows digitally-captured, computer-designed custom porcelain inlays, onlays and crowns to be made with ease and precision all in one visit.
Another advantage of CEREC dentistry is that it preserves as much healthy tooth enamel as possible. This advanced technology is able to capture highly accurate and detailed images of the affected area in order to create a crown or onlay that closely matches your natural tooth structure. With the use of CEREC technology we are able to offer our patients a strong, reliable, long-term restorative solution that is both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
At Leaside Dentistry we are proud to offer our patients the best and most innovative advances in dentistry. If you have cracked, chipped or decayed teeth please contact our friendly and professional staff to find out more on our CEREC services.
