Cerec uses CAD/CAM technology to fabricate strong, durable, and natural restorations like crowns, veneers, and inlays.
When a tooth is broken/structurally compromised, a simple resin filling is not sufficient to provide adequate strength to resist the biting forces on the tooth. In such situations a stronger material like ceramic needs to be used.
Traditionally, dentists had to make impressions and send the job to a laboratory. This meant multiple visits, messy impressions, and troublesome temporary crowns.
CAD/CAM stands for Computer assisted design and computer assisted machining. This technology allows us to make precise, strong, and aesthetically pleasing restorations of teeth in the same appointment.
