One of the most cutting edge pieces of advanced dental technology, CEREC, is now available here at Maxident Clinic! CEREC (computer assisted CEramic REConstruction) technology is one of only a handful of systems available worldwide for the creation of same-day crowns. It is the first computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) dental system invented. The concept was developed to make ceramic inlays immediately available to patients. This eliminated the need to send dental moulds to a separate facility for fabrication and have the patient come back for a second visit to install the restoration.
CEREC technology has been in use since the late 1980s and has been updated continuously since that time. Today, it is routinely used for on-site fabrication of inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers. It is also use for creating temporary bridges or for planning dental implant procedures.
Patients love the fact that they can have a whole crown (or crowns) made and fitted for them in under an hour instead of the usual two-week wait for lab based work. What’s more, there are no unpleasant impression moulds needed like conventional crown work, no second appointment and no temporary reconstructions needed.
