Everyone wants to achieve faster treatments without the hassle of waiting for multiple weeks for the completion of the treatment. Temporary placements can be bothersome especially to those who are busy with work and school. Getting immediate treatments are vital for preserving the beauty and structure of the mouth, bones, and facial structure this applies especially to missing teeth that can cause the shrinkage of the bones that can affect a person’s overall facial structure. With that in mind, Downtown Atlanta Dentistry uses state of the art equipment that allows the doctors to provide same day teeth restoration solutions with CEREC 3-D® CAD-CAM computers.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction which is a system that uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology which can create on-site high quality, aesthetic, and durable restorations in the same day as the patient’s consultation. It can create Dental Crowns, Veneers, Inlays, and Onlays in a few minutes that can be placed on the patient’s tooth without having to wait for a couple of weeks for its permanent placement.

How Are CEREC Restorations Done?

Like the traditional treatments, the treated teeth are prepared by trimming the enamel to ensure a proper fit of the dental prosthesis to be attached. It can also make sure that once the crown, veneer, inlay or onlay is attached that it would not affect the patient’s bite. After the tooth preparation, a digital image is taken then sent to a 3D computer where the dentist can work on for the design and the outcome of the treatment. After using the digital model of the tooth, the final design is then sent to a milling device which carves the model from porcelain blocks. Within minutes the durable and tooth-colored restoration is completed and ready for its attachment.

Benefits of CEREC

  • It provides a faster and more convenient treatment compared to the traditional procedures which usually takes up to two weeks for the custom-creation to be completed.
  • Ensures the perfect fit of the created dental prosthesis since it uses digital imaging for modeling and creation of the treatment plan.
  • No need for any temporary placements and multiple dental visits for the completion of the treatment.
  • The traditional way of taking impressions uses an elastic material that the patient bites down which can be messy and uncomfortable. But with CEREC it uses state of the digital art imaging for a more efficient and comfortable procedure.
  • CEREC provides a natural looking tooth that does not stand out and perfectly blends with the surrounding teeth by using durable and tooth-colored materials for better aesthetic and function.

CEREC provides faster, comfortable, convenient, and effective treatments by using state of the art equipment that can produce a high-quality, durable, and natural looking tooth restorations in minutes. It is ideal for people who are always on the go and those who engage with other people daily to maintain and preserve their natural looking smile.
