At our dental office, we utilize CEREC technology to save you time and to provide quality dental restorations.
CEREC is a system that allows dentists to design and create high-quality dental restorations in just one appointment. The restorations are completely metal free. CEREC, which was developed by Sirona, uses advanced technology to aid our dentist in designing digital restorations. A milling unit is then used to create the restoration in our office.
When you come in for your appointment, your tooth will first be prepared to make room for your dental restoration. After any decay has been removed and any needed shaping has been performed, your tooth will be scanned and stored as a 3D digital model. This technology means that impression material will not be needed. Software is used to give Dr. Ronald K. Rich an approximate shape for your dental restoration, which will then be refined to reach the optimal design. A milling machine will then be used to carve the restoration out of a ceramic block. You can even watch this process if you like.
CEREC has many advantages. Dental restorations made with CEREC are faster and more comfortable. As previously mentioned, with CEREC technology, you can have a dental restoration placed in just one visit. This means that temporary dental crowns and veneers are a thing of the past in our office! Because CEREC takes digital scans of the teeth, impression material, which many find uncomfortable, is not needed. Because CEREC restorations are made from ceramic, there are no dark margins, as with porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
We are proud to offer high-quality restorations with the CEREC system. Feel free to contact our office at 281-980-2537 today to learn more about CEREC restorations in Sugar Land, Texas, and to schedule your next reservation.
