Why patients are choosing CEREC
CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world’s only system in which fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations is completed in one office visit. With CEREC at your dentist’s side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule. So, why are thousands of people worldwide choosing the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs?
Single Appointment Dental Care
Most restorative dental procedures require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth is prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration is put on your tooth. You make a second appointment a few weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration placed. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options when repairing decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, or other metals. With CEREC, your dentist can use strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract together at almost equal rates. Consequently, your tooth will not crack. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
Your dentist can use CEREC for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers. Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Enhance it with CEREC.
Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of nearly 20 years, this equipment has helped dentists complete over 6 million restorations. Using metal-free materials that are closest to your natural enamel, CEREC gives you the highest quality restorative care. Ask your dentist today about single visit CEREC restorative care!
