What is involved in CEREC treatment

CEREC is a method of fabricating restorations in our office. This eliminates the need for a dental lab, and gives us full control over the final product. If changes are needed to achieve the perfect fit, we can correct them immediately, without having to schedule another appointment.

To begin, Dr. Groeber determines the most appropriate restoration for the desired outcome. This may be an inlay, onlay, or crown. Then, the damaged structure is removed. We use local anesthetic to make sure this is a comfortable process. This is similar to getting a standard filling or crown, but this is where the similarities end.

To plan your new restoration, we take optical impressions, not the standard, messy molds that you may have had to endure in the past. To capture the necessary data, innovated intra oral camera that captures the digital image. Here, the standard image is transformed utilizing CEREC 3D technology into a 3D model of your tooth, which enables us to design your crown. Once the final data is sent to the milling machine, it takes only about 30 minutes to complete fabrication, producing the new, natural CEREC restoration. Dr. Groeber places the inlay, onlay, or crown after evaluating it for precise fit. The bonding process, and the polished finish on the CEREC restoration leads to durability and aesthetic value like the natural tooth.

Benefits of ceramic restoration using the CEREC crown process

Benefits of ceramic restoration using the CEREC crown process:

  • Saves time: Traditional crowns require multiple visits, a temporary crown, and a wait to have a permanent crown placed. The CEREC process does all of that in a single visit.
  • Saves money: The CEREC crown cost is beneficial for almost every patient, as the amount of money spent on multiple visits is decreased and the cost of the temporary crown is eliminated. In addition, many people require time off from their job to have dental work done. Getting the crown in one day decreases the amount of time required off from your job.
  • Decreases discomfort: Many patients report enjoying the CEREC process significantly more than the traditional crown process. Part of that is the method used to get an impression of your tooth. Instead of the sticky putty used for traditional crowns, we use an intra oral camera to take multiple images of your tooth.
  • Less invasive: This type of restoration requires far less preparation than a traditional crown. This helps keep the integrity of your natural tooth more intact.
  • Preventive: Eliminates the need for a temporary crown.
