CEREC: Digital Imaging Technology in Cary, NC
When you chip or damage a tooth, the effects can be both uncomfortable, embarrassing, and dangerous for your dental health. Even if you aren’t in pain, a small issue can be extremely noticeable to coworkers and friends. On the other hand, some people would like a cosmetic enhancement as quickly as possible for wedding photos or an important event.
Using CEREC technology, we are able to add fillings and crowns in a single office visit, giving you the option of fast and effective results.
What are CEREC and CAD Technology?
Traditionally, in order to make a dental filing or crown, dentists must create a mold of your tooth. This mold is used to manufacture an artificial piece that fits snugly into gaps or covers missing pieces.
Instead of using molds, CEREC technology uses a picture to create artificial parts. Computer aided design (CAD) and 3D digital imaging create inlays, overlays, crowns, or veneers within a couple of hours. We are able to fix chips, provide cosmetic veneers or enhancements, and offer additional restorative services.
Patients have the ability to transform their smiles in a quick visit, and our dentists have total control of the color and appearance of veneers without outsourcing to a lab. Removing this step of communication produces extremely accurate results.
