If you've ever required restorative dental care like crowns or bridgework, then you know that the process can be lengthy. With cutting-edge dental technology, the time spent waiting is rapidly decreasing, thanks to instruments like Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC). Your Stamford, CT, dentists, Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson of Comprehensive Dental Group, are excited to provide you with same-day crowns.
How Does It Work?
CEREC is an efficient way to restore damaged or decayed teeth in a matter of hours. The preparation for same-day restorative dentistry is the same as the traditional way: the removal of any plaque present and shaving the natural tooth down to make room for a crown.
CEREC uses Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to restore your tooth with the help of computers, scanning instruments, and a milling machine.
The scanning instrument captures the impacted area and quickly creates a realistic 3D model of your teeth that your Stamford, CT, dentist will use to ensure the proper shape, color, and size of the new crown. The approved design is then sent off to the milling machine that will instantly create your custom ceramic crown. Once the custom-made tooth is finished, your dentist will bond the restoration over the natural tooth all in one appointment.
What Are the Benefits of CEREC?
Other than having the entire restorative process occur in just one dental visit, you'll be able to appreciate the natural appearance of the custom-made tooth. The technological advancement of CEREC provides you the benefit of:
- quick and precise results
- long-lasting material and appearance
