All the new technology popping up across different fields of dentistry is something that makes your dental appointment for fillings or crowns that much more pleasant. No more multiple visits; no more waiting for the lab to develop impressions of your teeth; no more lengthy exposure to x-rays. This technology is called CEREC.

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. It not only can take quicker pictures (high-resolution 3-D imaging) of your teeth to identify exactly how a crown might fit, but crates the impressions right there in the office. The crown is ready for placement in as little as 15 minutes. But the results can last years.

Benefits of CEREC

Speed. It used to take weeks to send plaster impressions to a manufacturer and then get them back for a fitting. It takes the dentist less than twenty minutes to input the specific information on your teeth into the computer and mill your crown.

Precision and accuracy. Because the images taken of your teeth are done at the microscopic level, the plaster impressions are incredibly precise. The data input by your dentist is done with the exact same level of precision. This enables the crown or filling to be milled as accurately as possible.

The ceramic material used to create your crown or filling expands and contracts as your natural teeth do. Because of this, there is no danger of cracking. Furthermore, they are neither too hard nor too soft. There is no undue wear and you will not need to replace them time and again as you might with older crown or filling technology. They also look like your natural teeth.

One of the most important advances with using CEREC is the fact that ceramic crowns and fillings have replaced mercury and other toxic metals. By removing these metals from your mouth, the potential harm they cause has been eliminated. With all of these benefits CEREC offers, why would you consider going to a dentist who does not use it?
