One Visit Restorations
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in once instrument.
The dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damages tooth.
This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the dentist uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits.
Finally, the dentist bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole process takes about one hour.
