When you visit our practice, our dentists will carefully examine your damaged tooth to determine the type of restoration you need and whether CEREC is the right treatment for you. After reviewing your options, our dentist will begin the treatment process by administering an anesthetic and removing any decay or weakened tooth tissue, preparing your tooth for restoration. Using a digital scan of your damaged tooth, our dentist will create a 3-dimensional image. This image will be used to create your restoration, eliminating the messy impression process. The computer and CEREC 3D software will then convert the digital image of your tooth into a virtual model of your restoration.
A milling unit will then be used to create your custom restoration. Our dentist will select a ceramic material colored to match the original color of your teeth, and in just a few minutes, your restoration will be completed. Our dentist will then carefully fit the restoration to your teeth, ensuring that you receive a proper fit and bite. The restoration will then be polished and bonded into place. Once your treatment has been completed, you can leave our office with a smile!
