It can be confusing trying to ascertain which treatment is most suitable for you, given the variety of procedures that you can choose from. You may be looking for a natural-looking crown to restore the function and beauty of a damaged tooth. You may wish to hide your stained or cracked tooth with porcelain veneers.
No matter which treatment you decide to go for, you would want the treatment to be fast and effective while delivering beautiful and successful results. In that regard, you may wish to select a dentist that offers CEREC restorations at their clinics.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Aesthetic Ceramics. Combining 3D imaging and CAD/CAM technology, it is a type of reconstructive dentistry designed to create natural-looking dental restorations. CEREC is a globally recognised computer-aided “design-and-build” milling system for restoring your oral health and functions.
While the technology is normally located at a dental laboratory, some tech-savvy dentists – who prefer to exercise quality control over their prosthetic outcomes – have cleverly invested in and built an in-house CEREC facility to deliver CAD/CAM restorations from their own clinic! These dental professionals are also known as CEREC dentists.
Besides their ability to deliver quality, high precision prosthetics, there is another huge advantage of choosing a CEREC dentist for all your restorative work – like crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays/onlays, etc. With the in-house CEREC facility, your dentist can completely mill a new restoration for you, while you sit and relax in the dental chair!
In the past, you had to wait – several days to weeks – for the prosthetic to be delivered to a dental lab to be fabricated. That’s because most clinics outsource their treatment cases to labs, at which their prosthetics (artificial teeth) are created. CEREC dentists, on the other hand, use the same state-of-the-art equipment to fabricate your prosthetic restorations on the spot – during the same dental appointment!
What the in-house facility represents is also precise fabrication work that does not suffer from poor communication between dentists and dental lab technicians – which can occur from time to time – resulting in delayed treatments and excessive adjustments during the fitting session.
Instead CEREC dentists can scrutinise the work themselves using the technology’s computer-aided precision tools, to render quality results every single time. Of course, as the patient, you also save on time and money that is otherwise spent on multiple dental visits.
With a CEREC dentist, you only need to book one appointment for most restorative procedures. The convenience factor alone makes sense for you to consider a CEREC dentist for future restorative work.
