CEREC CAD/CAM Restoration

 

CEREC CAD/CAM Restorations in one visit

CAD/CAM Digital ImageWhen a tooth needs a restoration, we can often use CAD/CAM technology here at our office in Jackson Heights.

The letters “CAD/CAM” stand for “computer-aided design” and “computer-aided manufacturing”. We can use this technology to custom-design and fabricate tooth-colored restorations, crowns, onlays, inlays, or veneers, all in one appointment. CAD/CAM restorations are often the best choice for a healthy, beautiful, and natural-looking smile.

 

The Benefits of CEREC Restorations

  • The restorations are very accurate.
  • Only a minimal amount of tooth preparation is needed, leaving more of the healthy tooth structure intact.
  • They usually require only one appointment, even when we are working on more than one tooth.
  • The restorations are made of tooth-colored materials.

The Procedure

The first step is to numb the area to make you comfortable. Depending on the situation, we may also use a rubber dam to protect your mouth while we work.

 

We remove any decay and shape the tooth with the handpiece. Next a reflective powder is applied to the prepared tooth. This allows the equipment to “see” the contours of the prepared tooth. We then take a digital image, using a special optical infrared camera that records the tooth’s exact dimensions on the CAD/ CAM computer. Using this image and the specialized computer software, we carefully design the restoration.

 

CAD/CAM Milling MachineWe then select the appropriate material in the matching shade for your specific tooth. This material is placed in the milling machine which shapes it into a custom-fitted restoration.

 

Once fitted for accuracy, we add any custom coloring as needed, bond or cement the restoration in place, and polish it to a beautiful luster. Last, we check your bite and make any final adjustments.
