Advanced Dentistry with CEREC Technology
Providing a Lifetime of Dentistry that Cares
What is CEREC?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a procedure that involves taking scans of your teeth and using those scans to construct a ceramic prosthetic crown, inlay, or onlay restoration. Once these steps are complete, the prosthetic will be placed. Your dentist may suggest a CEREC procedure if the crown of a tooth becomes damaged, unless the damage has occurred below the gum line. If this is the case, your dentist will discuss other treatment options with you.
At Brook West Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with the care and support they need. If you are scheduled to have this procedure and have any questions, please contact our staff to see if CEREC crowns are right for you. We are proud to provide one-of-a-kind personalized care that is tailored to your unique needs.
The Acquisition and Milling Units
The CEREC process includes the Acquisition Unit and the Milling Unit.
The Acquisition Unit is a mobile device used for taking CEREC scans. This scan identifies decayed areas and broken portions of teeth that require restorations. Within merely a few minutes, this unit will compile comprehensive data that is then gathered and designed to develop the needed replacement. Once this model is finished, it will be sent to the Milling unit, where it will be constructed.
The Milling Unit is used to create the replacement part for your tooth. As soon as your dentist has matched the appropriate shade, the milling machine begins carving the design. When the design is finished, it will be polished and then bonded to your teeth.
