CEREC or Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic – is technology that allows maximally precise ceramic and zirconium tooth restoration and micro prosthetics during a single appointment.
Using traditional dental prosthetics it can take several weeks to get your dazzling smile again. The “Dentarium” clinic is ready to offer a new solution that will help you to get your smile back and will save your time and money.
How does CEREC work?
After preparing the tooth, with the aid of a 3D video camera, the dentist obtains a picture of the tooth/teeth which is captured on the computer and enlarged several times in a 3D projection.
Using a special programme, on the monitor, the dentist makes a model of the missing tooth portion or the whole tooth. At this stage in the process, it is necessary to both skilfully know the technology as well as to have a creative approach.
Together with the patient, the dentist selects the base colour for the planned restoration.
The computer calculates the scope of the restoration and transmits the data to the grinding block.
The grinding module grinds the necessary construction from the chosen colour in ceramic or zirconium in 5-10 minutes.
The fitting and complete finishing of the construction occurs in the oral cavity, which is followed by a glaze overlay and, if necessary, tinting, application of a clear coating and firing in a ceramic kiln/oven
Conclusion – fixing the construction on the tooth/teeth and polishing the edges
The technology’s advantages:
Noticeable time savings. The dentist performs the whole process in a couple of hours – from preparing the teeth to the fixing of the complete ceramic restoration
The most precise securing of the ceramic to the tooth tissue.
Because the procedure takes place in a short time span, it avoids damage to the tooth tissue as a result of external impact and reduces the chance of secondary infection.
High material stability and resistance to wear, therefore – a long life for the construction
Outstanding aesthetic results
Dr. Petrosjans has worked with this technology in Riga from the very beginning, therefore at Dentarium Clinic you can rely on 15 years of CEREC experience.
