CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction. The CEREC machine itself uses digital technology to create an impression of a damaged tooth and design a custom restoration of the tooth. The CEREC machine then mills the customized dental restoration in-office, which means no need to rely on an off-site dental lab.
Using a three dimensional digital model of your teeth, the CEREC machine will custom design the dental restoration. Using his years of experience in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Shay Markovitch and his associates can adjust this model for the dental restoration based on your needs.
Once the design of the dental restoration is set, the information is then sent to a milling unit. This milling unit will then create the actual dental restoration using a block of special ceramic material that closely resembles the composition of your teeth. This newly created dental restoration is then bonded to the tooth that needs to be treated. Final adjustments or alterations can be made to the dental restoration as needed.
There are many benefits of CEREC dental restoration technology. One of the biggest benefits is that CEREC technology saves you time and hassle. Only one visit is necessary to get the restorations designed, created, and placed.
Two other important benefits are durability and appearance. CEREC dental restorations are approximately three times stronger than the restorations that are created in a dental lab. In addition, CEREC restorations blend in with your natural teeth, which means that no one will realize that you have dental restorations in place.
