Cerec™ 3D One Day One Visit
Using this pioneering technology, CEREC™ 3D allows us to offer natural-looking, high- quality ceramic “fillings” or restorations, completed and placed in a single visit.
How does it work?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth then using a special camera, we take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression of the tooth.
Computer Aided Design technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full-colour computer monitor right before your eyes!
Then Computer Aided Manufacturing creates an extremely precise restoration.
A high-speed diamond bur and a disk work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material.
Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry, making it practically invisible.
