One time-consuming process when it comes to orthodontic treatments was the production of a mould. Your dentist in Molesey would need to take impressions of your teeth and mouth in a very manual way. This imprint was then sent off to a lab to be produced. This is now a digital process thanks to CEREC on offer at Smilessence. If you are interested in this advanced treatment then call our team today to book your appointment.
Well CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic, snappy right. This might sound complicated but the fact is this advanced treatment can mean a better smile in as little as 1 hour. That’s an impressive claim so how does it do this? CEREC technology means that your dentist in Molesly can design and manufacture veneers, inlays, crowns and onlays incredibly quickly. This enables them to restore your cracked or damaged teeth. The repairs are done using compressed porcelain and are stronger than traditional layered porcelain used in labs. All this can be done while you are right there in the chair. All this means quick treatment, strong restorations and removes the needs for uncomfortable impressions or temporary wear.
How does CEREC work
Your dentist in Molesly will scan your mouth using the machine in a fast and painless process. The scan is specific to your mouth and therefore you are getting a tailored and custom fit product in a fraction of the time it would normally take a dentist. While you wait, the 3D scan is sent to the machine onsite and around 20 minutes later you have your new crown, for example, is produced out of the compressed porcelain. The only step left now is for your new porcelain crown to be bonded to your teeth transforming your smile.
Why is CEREC Beneficial
Time is money so they say, and we have been able to significantly reduce treatment times by introducing CEREC. A previously drawn out and complicated process is accomplished equally as effectively with a single visit to the dentist. Really impressive stuff.
Avoiding uncomfortable Imprints, by using a simple 3D scanning process you can have extraordinary imaging of your mouth, gums and teeth without the hassle of biting down on moulds and imprints for ages and then having to wait until your next visit to have the new crowns and veneers fitted.
These crowns manufactured in this way could last your lifetime. New research is concluding that the vast majority of crowns and veneers produced in this way can last a lifetime. How comforting it could be to know that one treatment might be all you need in connection with a high standard of oral health care routine.
