Benefits of CEREC

Ceramic construction restoration provides a number of marvelous benefits for dental patients. Since CEREC can be completed in just one visit, it saves you the hassle of finding the time to visit the dentist and saves you money because you only need to take one day off of work. Ceramic construction restoration allows you to keep more of your natural tooth than many other restoration techniques and procedures in today’s market.

CEREC is very strong and durable as it is comprised of a compressed ceramic material as opposed to a layer ceramic material which is quite resilient. Ceramic construction restoration is more economically feasible compared to other available restoration options.

How Ceramic Construction Works

Your dentist will begin by first preparing your tooth for the restoration process. Your tooth is then sprayed with a special dust. The special dust makes it easier for the camera to take a detailed picture of your actual tooth. The image that the camera generates is later sent to a computer. Once the image is transmitted to the computer the dentist views the picture of your tooth on the computer screen and begins to design the final restoration.

After the dentist has finished the final restoration design of your tooth the completed design is sent to the milling unit. The milling unit is the place where the ceramic construction restoration is made. It takes approximately 15 minutes for the restoration to be complete. After this is done your dentist will make sure that both the restoration size and color are correct following careful examination of the restoration. If the restoration size and color are both correct the dentist will proceed to polish the restoration and will affix it with dental cement. The ceramic construction restoration process is now officially done.
