Cerec CAD Cam
The term CEREC is derived from CEramic REConstruction; meaning, the replacement of missing tooth structure with ceramic material. The CEREC system comprises a computer-controlled milling machine designed specifically for dentistry. A high-resolution scanner captures an image of the prepared tooth and then the chair side computer is used to design a unique restoration immediately, which is then milled and fitted at the same appointment.
Previously, most complex procedures required several visits to complete. This new technology allows the clinician to place non-metallic, tooth-coloured restorations made of high quality, durable, ceramic materials providing our patients with beautiful aesthetic restorations in one appointment. One of the main benefits of this procedure is that it lasts much longer than conventional resin restorations.
