The CEREC Technology
The CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology is a renowned aesthetic and resilient dental restoration method. Thanks to this revolutionary technology, Sourire Concept dentists are able to design, create and adjust ceramic parts to restore teeth that are fragile because of decay or extensive fillings, using preparation principles of the computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
Sourire Concept was one of the first clinics in Québec to acquire this technology over fifteen years ago, and continued to follow its evolution. Today, we use the CEREC OMNICAM Technology.
The ceramic restoration with CEREC gives the tooth 98% of its original strength; it is therefore the most durable restoration technology in dentistry currently on the market. Made to measure on-site, it is often used to avoid root canal treatment or to prevent tooth fractures. CEREC technology treatments are also performed in a single appointment which means you are only under anesthetic once. There are also no prints made using unpleasant pastes or a temporary crown that is likely to fall. To restore your teeth back to their original strength, do not settle for less!
Steps of CEREC Treatments
After you and the dentist have discussed and a diagnosis has been made, the tooth is prepared and then scanned with a laser camera. You will find a natural smile!
The dentist designs the restoration using CEREC software, allowing for unparalleled precision. Revolutionary technology that increases the life of the tooth!
The part is machined from a block of ceramic that matches the color of your teeth. It is then placed in a ceramic kiln to increase its strength. It is even possible for you to witness the whole process!
The final step before you have your new smile! The dentist glues the ceramic piece to the tooth permanently, in order to achieve a result that is strong and durable.
The advantages of the CEREC procedure
CEREC technology can partially or entirely replace a faulty natural crown as well as faulty or damaged fillings.
CEREC is less expensive than a crown or inlay made in the laboratory, which requires impressions using unpleasant pastes to produce temporary crowns that are often fragile and unstable.
The CEREC procedure allows for an intervention that is performed in a single appointment, meaning you are under anesthesia only once. A simple and effective method for everyone.
