CEREC by Sirona at DENTAL ART

In today’s world, few of us have the time to visit the dentist for multiple appointments in order to receive dental treatment. At the same time, sitting for hours in a dental chair is not ideal either. At DENTAL ART we are now able to replace missing teeth and restore damaged teeth in just a single appointment using our new state-of-the-art Cerec machine. With Cerec, which is an acronym for Ceramic Restorations, we can make permanent crowns, veneers or onlays for you while you are still in the chair.

Here is how it works:

  • We will prepare your tooth in the normal way.
  • A special camera is then used to take an image of your teeth which is then uploaded to the design unit.
  • This image is uploaded to a CAD/CAM unit, which creates a 3D model of your new tooth.
  • The model is used by a milling machine, which creates your new tooth from a block of high quality ceramic that best matches the shade of your surrounding teeth.
  • The restoration is then fixed into place.

CEREC Benefits

CEREC Process

CEREC-1

After the consultation, a camera captures the area to be treated.

CEREC-2

The dental prosthesis is then created as a 3D computer model.

CEREC-3

The restoration is subsequently milled from a ceramic block.

CEREC-4

The finished ceramic restoration is inserted just a little while later.
