A recent health show talked about the CEREC CadCam machine and its many benefits to dental patients. The show host remarked that the product was not plentiful in Canada due to its cost.
Our practice has been using CEREC CADCAM since 1999. The initial cost of this machine is considered expensive however it is the only method available today to deliver ceramic restorations to our patients in one visit.
A one visit ceramic inlay, onlay or crown means only one visit to the office, only one injection and no rubber impression or temporary restoration are required.
Our patients who have received CEREC restorations would not have any other. We would be pleased to help you experience CEREC all ceramic tooth coloured restorations, the closest thing to natural enamel available today.
Cerec Restorations are natural looking, tooth coloured ceramic crowns. They are revolutionary in many ways: they do not require an impression as do porcelain fused to metal crowns, they are completed in one appointment and they are designed on a computer.
Dr. Diaz and Dr. Van Ryswyk prepares the tooth by trimming away the decayed area. A picture is taken of the prepared tooth and a CAD CAM computer is used to design the crown. Precision robotics carve the crown out of high quality porcelain. The process is complete when the final restoration is bonded onto the tooth. The whole procedure takes approximately two hours. This technology is changing the face of dentistry and offers these advantages over traditional crowns:
- strong and long lasting
- metal and mercury free
- closest to natural enamel
- kind to opposing teeth
- tooth coloured
- ONE APPOINTMENT AND NO IMPRESSIONS
