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
