CEREC® - crowns in a day
Technology today is changing our everyday lives. Many people, however, aren’t aware that technology also is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. Cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. One breakthrough instrument, called CEREC®, allows Dr. Burgmeier and Dr. Floden to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving you time and avoiding any inconvenience.
What is CEREC®?
CEREC® is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CERamic REConstruction. Translated, it means that Dr. Burgmeier and Dr. Floden can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth.
How does the instrument work?
CEREC® uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. The doctors use a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the doctors use CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, the dentist bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole process takes about one hour.
What does this innovation mean for you?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. Dr. Burgmeier or Dr. Floden no longer needs to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated. CEREC® has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.
