CEREC – Same Day Dentistry
Dentist in Wheaton, IL
CEREC is a sophisticated system that designs and makes high quality, metal-free dental restorations in one patient visit. This system utilizes 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to assist our dentist in designing a virtual restoration without taking impressions. This allows us to make precise restorations that look great, fit perfectly and can last for years.
Our CEREC system allows our practice to do same-day restorations. A typical CEREC crown appointment lasts two hours and there is no need for additional appointments. Also, the CEREC system creates restorations from a solid block of ceramic, creating very durable and strong restorations.
- Photographs of your teeth are taken after preparation and stored in our 3D digital model software.
- The 3 D software designs your tooth
- When the model is complete, a machine mills the actual restoration out of a ceramic block.
- The restoration is bonded to the tooth using a resin bonding system.
