If you have a damaged or missing tooth, you may imagine months passing by before the problem can be fixed. Imagine if your tooth could be restored in just one visit. With CEREC, a sophisticated dental technology system, it’s possible. At Blackrock Dental, we use this incredible technology to create a high quality dental restorations the same day you need them.
What Is CEREC?
CEREC is a system that uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) to create ceramic dental restorations in one appointment. With the assistance of a 3D camera, we can take a digital impression of your teeth and then create realistic looking restorations, including crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays, using our milling machine. There’s no need to wait months, or evens days—CEREC allows us to restore damaged teeth right after diagnosis.
What Are the Advantages?
Though dentistry is our life, we understand it’s not yours. Our CEREC machine allows you to get your dental health restored quickly and be on your way.
Some CEREC advantages include:
- Natural appearance
- Metal free
- Fewer appointments necessary
- Lower cost
How Does It Work?
If one of our dentists determines you need a restoration, we will prepare your tooth for the procedure. We will create a model of your tooth, which is then carved into the correct shape of your tooth with our CEREC milling unit. When the artificial tooth is complete, we will place it in your mouth and ensure it fits properly. The restoration is then polished and bonded to your original tooth.
