Lawrence Kansas Dentist Using Innovative New FDA-Approved Technology to Eliminate Mercury Fillings

PRLog - Oct. 12, 2012 - Lawrence Kansas Dentist Les Miller DDS is using an innovative new FDA-approved robotic technology called CEREC 3D to eliminate harmful and ugly mercury fillings and provide complete smile makeovers.  This new technology eliminates the need for outside lab work enabling patients to repair their teeth and get their natural, attractive smile back in just one convenient appointment.

“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) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument.  The dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth.  This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the dentist uses CAD technology to design the restoration.  The CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits... right before their eyes.  Finally, the dentist bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth.  The whole process takes about an hour.

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.
