What is Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC)?

CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is an innovative process. With it, a patient can have their teeth restored in a single visit. This process uses computer aided drawing software and three dimensional photography to help produce the porcelain restorations. This simplified approach prevents the patient from having to undergo multiple visits to the office. Instead, CEREC allows a convenient visit to a Gainesville dentist and restore their smile so they can get back to living.

A Single Visit is All That is Required

Cosmetic dental work requires patients to schedule multiple visits with their Gainesville dentist. The first session usually consists of tooth preparation, impressions and even temporary restorations. Future appointments are required to further address the problems and to restore the appearance of your teeth.

When you choose Premiere Dental Team, we work with you to restore the strength, beauty and functionality of your teeth in a single visit. We don’t draw out the process and require numerous visits that take up your valuable time. Instead, our CEREC process allows you to complete crowns, inlays, onlays and even veneers all in a single visit. There’s no waiting and no surprises along the way.

We Use Only the Best Dental Materials Available

CREC utilizes materials that have a similar composition as your teeth. This allows them to function closely to natural teeth. This allows your teeth to evenly contract at an equal rate when consuming foods and drinks of different temperatures. Since the chemicals are bonded to your teeth, you won’t have to worry about them falling off or coming loose who chewing. Instead, your teeth become stronger and you are able to chew the foods you once loved again.

What are the Benefits of CEREC?

There are a few benefits associated with CEREC when provided by your Gainesville dentist. They include:

  • A brand new smile the same day. Often in as little as 2 hours.
  • There is no need for temporary crowns or fillings.
  • Replacement teeth look natural.
  • The process is non-invasive and won’t damage existing teeth.

Innovative Technology

The first rate technology used in CEREC is one of the reasons it has become the go to choice for patients. Your Gainesville dentist takes a three dimensional photograph of the mouth. They can then create a model of the cavities and begin to address these concerns. Using biogenetic comparisons of your teeth they can help to perfectly sculpt the replacement teeth. When the tooth is sculpted and ready to go, the milling unit begins to create the replacement tooth from porcelain cement. The entire process is done within the office using the latest technology. When the tooth is ready, the replacement is then adhered using resin cement.

There is little down time and your mouth will look like new again. If you need teeth restored in your mouth, consider visiting a Gainesville dentist who specializes in CEREC. Not only will they help you to restore the damaged teeth in your mouth, but they’ll give you your smile back. All this is done within a single visit.
