While people want a beautiful and fully-functional smile instead of their damaged one, they may not have a schedule that allows for multiple appointments. While this is the traditional approach to repairing or restoring teeth, CEREC® allows for a new and efficient method. Feist Siegert Dental now uses CEREC® for a more efficient process in only one appointment.
CEREC® is short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and can create crowns, veneers, inlays or onlays. The team at Feist Siegert Dental understands that people do not have an infinite amount of free time and use CEREC® to provide accurate restorations in one visit.
In a normal appointment for any of those restorations, dental professionals would need to take a mold of the patient’s teeth and then send it to a lab. After a week or two, the lab would send the dental professionals the new restoration. Until then, the patient would have to wear a temporary restoration or struggle without one. Fortunately, Feist Siegert Dental can use CEREC® to shorten the process without decreasing the effectiveness.
By using CAD/CAM technology, CEREC® can scan the patient’s teeth and create a 3D image of the teeth. This image will have the exact dimension of the patient’s teeth and can customize the restoration to the patient’s needs. The machine operates in similar fashion to a 3D printer and will generate the proper restoration in the same visit.
While the machine is developing the restoration, the professional team at Feist Siegert Dental will prepare the tooth. Depending on the type of restoration, someone may need to shave a portion of the tooth off or alter the shape of the surrounding teeth. Once the tooth or teeth are ready, the professional will then place the restoration.
Since it is such an efficient service, people can even call on CEREC® if they damage a tooth during a vacation. Brides also use CEREC® when they need to repair a tooth quickly a few weeks before a wedding. If you want to enhance or repair your smile in only one appointment then Feist Siegert Dental is the place for you to call.
