If your dentist has recommended veneers, implants, or crowns for your teeth, then you may benefit from CEREC near Puyallup. This revolutionary dental technology offers patients new levels of comfort and convenience.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a method of dentistry that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing technology. With this state-of-the-art equipment, your dentist can create restorations such as veneers and dental crowns on the same day as your appointment. CEREC boasts more than 20 years of research and practical use and, using this technology, more than 25 million restorations have been completed worldwide. CEREC veneers, crowns, and implants have proven to be precise in design, effective for use, and safe for patients.
Why choose CEREC?
One of the most notable benefits of CEREC is its ability to save you time. Traditionally, dental crown treatment requires at least two visits to the dentist. CEREC, on the other hand, offers you same day crowns and veneers, so your treatment can be completed in a single appointment. CEREC also eliminates the need for having impression material in your mouth, which can feel uncomfortable and be unpleasant. CEREC crowns require less of your natural tooth to be removed for them to fit properly, and there will be no need for a temporary prosthesis. Typically, CEREC restorations take only one hour to create. They are made from biocompatible, anti-abrasive, high-grade, and plaque-resistant ceramic material. CEREC technology provides natural-looking results for your veneers and crowns in just one convenient visit.
How does CEREC work?
When you visit your dentist for a CEREC restoration, your treatment begins with an initial consultation. Next, your dentist uses a camera to take images of the treatment area, and this data is transferred to a computer where it is converted into a 3-D model of the restoration design. The CEREC technology then sculpts the dental prosthesis from a block of ceramic material. After a short wait, the dental restoration will be complete and ready for placement in your mouth.
