For teeth requiring partial or complete restorations, the usual procedure requires two dental visits spaced approximately
two weeks apart. In the time period between appointments, the patient often endures ill-fitting temporary
crowns that trap food, cause tooth sensitivity and may fall off at the most inopportune times. CEREC restorations
are an amazing development in dentistry utilizing CAD-CAM technology to prepare and place a dental restoration
in a single visit.
The benefits to the patient:
The material used for the dental restoration is milled from a single block of porcelain allowing for a much stronger restoration. This procedure is also used for smaller restorations called inlays and onlays, offering a superior product to the basic white composite filling.
