Dentistry in a Day
BioDental is proud to offer dentistry in a day with CEREC technology. Using the CEREC computer software and milling unit, Dr. Matian can manufacture custom, high quality porcelain restorations while you wait. For patients in need of veneers, crowns, inlays or onlays, this may be the perfect option to get you back to your daily life without a long waiting period or multiple follow-up appointments.
How CEREC works
As the first step in CEREC, Dr. Matian will prepare your mouth in order to apply a reflective powder onto the applicable teeth. Once this is done, he will take a digital image of your teeth using a special optical camera. This camera allows Dr. Matian to see the exact dimensions of your teeth in three dimensions. Design of your restoration can now begin.
Using the patented CEREC software, Dr. Matian carefully designs your restoration. He can use CEREC to design any number of restoration types, including:
Once the design is made, Dr. Matian selects the appropriate porcelain block to match the shade of your neighboring teeth. This block is then placed into the CEREC milling unit, which, in only a few minutes, shapes it into a custom-fitted restoration.
Dr. Matian will then try on the new restoration, which allows him to make any final adjustments necessary, such as coloring. Once everything looks good, the restoration is cemented into place and polished to match the surrounding teeth. The last step is to check your bite and make sure your teeth sit properly.
Using computer assisted design and manufacture is beneficial because it provides extremely accurate restorations with durable materials. This means that only a minimal amount of tooth preparation is required, leaving more of the healthy tooth structure intact. With CEREC, you can have strong, healthy restorations in only one appointment.
Your new dental restoration begins with a consultation. To find out more about CEREC technology and other products offered by BioDental, please give us a call to set an appointment.
