In this modern age, almost everything is digital. Our music, photos and other important files are all stored in our computer’s hard drives. Your Lincroft dental clinic has also gone digital in many ways with the help of modern dental equipment. One of the most advanced machines at the dental office uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided manufacturing/computer-aided manufacturing) technology to deliver fast and effective treatment for damaged teeth.
CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) in-office CAD/CAM system is equipped with a precision scanner, advanced software, and a powerful milling unit that that allows your dentist to fabricate your crowns in just a single visit. It provides great benefits to patients who need an immediate solution for cracked, fractured, or broken teeth.
With the CEREC system, multiple appointments are squeezed into just one visit. This saves time and frees up your schedule. It’s beneficial for patients like you who don’t have time to go back and forth to the clinic just to have your teeth fixed.
The procedure is quite simple. A special camera captures digital impressions of your mouth, which are used to create a 3D model of your teeth. Your dentist will then use this digital impression in order to design your crown. Once he’s satisfied with it, the design is sent to the milling unit, which manufactures your crown from a block of high-quality ceramic. You’ll just have to wait a few minutes for the machine to finish. As soon as the crown is done, it’ll be placed on to your teeth by your dentist.
You’ll be happy with the results because the fabricated crowns are made of high-quality materials that fit your bite perfectly, look like your natural teeth, and last longer than traditionally made ones. Maintain it by observing proper oral hygiene and seeing your dentist for routine checkups.
