How Does CEREC Work?
The CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) machine is a dental tool used to make customized ceramic dental restorations in one visit, speeding up a process that typically requires sending a mold of a patient’s teeth to a dental laboratory to get a part made, which can take up to a week and requires multiple trips to the dentist.
Saves time: More dentists are having CEREC machines installed in their offices because it saves both them and their patients time — for example, if you go to a dentist’s office to get a dental crown and the dentist does not have a CEREC machine, they will have to take a mold of your teeth and send it to a laboratory to get the crown made, and then the dentist will give you a temporary crown until you come back in when the permanent crown arrives to finish the procedure; basically, having a CEREC machine eliminates the waiting period so you do not have to go back a second time.
Accuracy: The CAD technology used by CEREC machines provides the most accurate replication of your tooth, which means the size and shape of the replica will be almost identical to your real tooth
Reduces waste: Due to the accuracy of the machine, the replica created by the CEREC machine is very precise, which means it only uses the needed amount of the material used to create the replica, reducing waste
