CEREC Dental Technology
CEREC is a revolutionary dental technology that enables the creation of dental restorations and cosmetic dental treatments in a single office visit, which would typically require multiple visits.
Dr. Silver, a dentist in Calgary, can assess your individual requirements and aesthetic preferences to determine if CEREC is the best option for you. To schedule a personal consultation, please contact Southcentre Dental Clinic at 403-278-1415 .
How CEREC Works
The CEREC procedure starts with digital imaging, which produces accurate three-dimensional models of your mouth and teeth. These models are sent to a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system that creates your custom restorations. The design of your crown is customized on a computer screen, and once everything is ideal, the CEREC system will direct the milling unit to create the crown from a solid block of dental-grade porcelain. Dr. Silver supervises the production of your restorations and will place them during the same visit.
Typically, restorative dental treatments and cosmetic dentistry procedures require multiple appointments spread out over weeks or months to create a crown in a laboratory. During this time, a temporary crown made of plastic material is often worn, and it can fall off, causing pain and embarrassment. With CEREC, a crown is completed in a single visit, so there’s no need for multiple injections or temporary crowns that can cause nerve irritation and damage.
CEREC may be used to create:
However, CEREC treatment is most efficient when only a small number of restorations are necessary. Patients who require a series of porcelain veneers may be better served by a traditional approach. If you’re unsure whether CEREC is right for you, please schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Silver at Southcentre Dental Clinic by calling 403-278-1415.
