THE FUTURE OF DENTISTRY
Sirona’s product innovations set the standards for dental treatment and we are the global leader in the development of digital treatment modalities that drive improved workflow and a better patient experience.
CEREC dentistry is a system that allows you to have your crown fitted during one single dental visit. It has several advantages over conventional, laboratory-made restorations. First and foremost, everything is carried out in one visit. With the system a dentist can make a crown, veneer or inlay in a single visit. This is normally a procedure that would take two weeks when customized in a lab. Instead of using putty to take an impression of your tooth a digital image is taken using a special camera.
Then, the image is converted into a 3D computerized model of your tooth. This model is used to create your new tooth. Your dentist is in complete control of the final result because the finished crown or veneer is crafted by your dentist from start to finish. Plus, you don’t have to deal with any temporary restorations.
The benefits to CEREC far outweigh and negatives there might be about it. It is the ideal way to replace or repair a tooth.
