CEREC Crowns -Turns Out You Have Better Things to do with Your Time
Technology today is changing our everyday lives. Many people, however, aren’t aware that technology also is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. CEREC Crowns are the cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. One breakthrough instrument, called CEREC crowns, allows dentists to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience.
How does the instrument work?
CEREC crowns uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. Dr. Pestana uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where Dr. Pestana uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, Dr. Pestana bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth.
