Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Prosthodontist Dr. Robert Mokbel recently incorporated the CEREC dental restorative system into the services at his Fountain Valley, CA practice. The CEREC system enables Dr. Mokbel to perform a variety of services, such as placing a dental crown or dental filling, in just one visit.
The acronym CEREC stands for Chairside, Economical, Restorations, Esthetic, and Ceramic. The CEREC restorative system can also be used to repair decayed teeth, remove faulty amalgam fillings, or place veneers. Dental professionals around the world use CEREC to restore the natural beauty and strength of weak, broken, and decayed teeth.
Instead of using trays of gooey material to form an imprint, CEREC employs advanced technology to generate digital optical impressions. With the CEREC system, patients no longer need to bite into trays to create an impression of their teeth. Dr. Mokbel simply applies a nontoxic, tasteless powder to the tooth and takes a digital picture that he then converts to a three dimensional model using the CEREC 3D software. Dr. Mokbel utilizes this virtual model to strategically design the ideal restoration for the individual patient’s needs.
After designing the restoration, Dr. Mokbel sends the data to a milling machine in the office where a ceramic block is placed. The milling machine constructs a dental crown or some other ceramic tooth-colored restoration in just 10 to 20 minutes. Dr. Mokbel then fits the dental crown or dental filling and bonds it to the tooth. The CEREC method enables Dr. Mokbel to expedite the restoration process and complete all these steps in a single day.
