The Chairside Economical Restoration using Esthetic Ceramic, also known as CEREC, is a highly advanced method of fabricating dental restorations. As opposed to the conventional method, CEREC uses a computer-guided method of making restoration, producing restorations with higher accuracy and less time in fabricating them.
When you visit us at our Long Beach, CA office for a consultation, our team will screen your mouth and determine the severity of your condition. We will use the data obtained to assess your eligibility for the restorations. Once confirmed, we will prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel to accommodate the restoration.
A hand-held scanning device is used to digitally create an image of the teeth, and the obtained data will be displayed on a chairside screen. The images displayed on the screen can be viewed in multiple angles and zoomed in/out as required to observe the teeth better. The same data will be input into a CAD/CAM machine which will mill out the restoration with precision in a few minutes.
We will then retrieve the restoration and check if it suitably fits. In case any changes in contour are required, we will make them before bonding the restoration to your tooth. As always, we will take a bite test to ensure your natural bite isn’t disrupted. The restoration will then be polished to enhance its aesthetics.
We invite you to schedule a consultation with our team of dental experts at our Long Beach, CA office to get all your oral concerns addressed at the earliest. Please call us at (562) 432-9883 or schedule an online consultation, and we’ll be happy to help.
