“Technology today is changing our everyday lives,” said dentist Les Miller. Many, people however, aren’t aware that technology also is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. In fact, cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, while creating great results and beautiful teeth. One breakthrough instrument, called CEREC 3D, allows dentists to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience.”
What is CEREC 3D?
CEREC 3D is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Translated, it means that a dentist can restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality porcelain material that matches the natural color of other teeth.
How does the instrument work?
CEREC 3D uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing)
What does this innovation mean for the client?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more mercury-silver fillings and discolored smiles. It also means saving all of the good enamel instead of cutting the tooth down to a stub for a crown. The restoration is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive, plaque-resistant, and mercury free. Dentist no longer need to create temporaries that sometimes come off or take messy impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated.
