3 Dental Issues that CEREC Can Repair
CEREC technology is one of the latest advancements in restorative dentistry. CEREC uses a combination of computer-aided design and manufacturing technology to enable specially trained dentists to fabricate ceramic dental implants with ease—often on the same day as your appointment. Take a look at just a few of the dental problems that your Tucson dentist can quickly and easily solve with CEREC:
Broken or Cracked Teeth
It isn’t uncommon for teeth to become cracked or chipped over time. In such cases, a dental crown can mitigate the damage to the tooth and restore the appearance of your smile. Traditionally, a dentist would have to make a mold of your teeth and send away for a lab-fabricated replacement, but CEREC allows your dentist to construct a digital image of your teeth and fabricate a natural-looking porcelain crown in the same visit, eliminating the need for multiple dental appointments or temporary fillings.
Cavities can cause significant pain and sensitivity. Even a few short days with a cavity can seem excruciatingly long. Using the same computer-imaging technology involved in making crowns, the CEREC system can also reconstruct portions of a tooth and produce porcelain onlays or inlays. Your dentist can then restore the affected tooth and provide immediate relief.
Crooked or Stained Teeth
Even if your teeth are not necessarily damaged, a crooked or discolored smile can have a profound psychological impact. Porcelain veneers are one of the fastest, most effective procedures in cosmetic dentistry for aesthetically reinventing your smile. Because veneers are essentially a series of thin plates that are bonded on top of normal teeth, CEREC technology can drastically reduce the turnaround time for the entire procedure.
