What is Cerec Restoration?
Cerec restoration is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Simple if you have a tooth that has decayed and you need a filling or crown fitted, this new approach to treatment can be completed within one session. This can often take as little as one hour to be completed. We use a mobile computer known as a CEREC Acquisition Unit. This wonderful piece of equipment will allow us to create a 3D image of your teeth using digital technology.
What makes Cerec Restoration so great?
Unlike ordinary fillings of amalgam, CEREC uses a ceramic (porcelain) filling or crown. This material has the added advantage of being smooth, non-abrasive and can be color matched to your teeth. Because the method is so quick your dentist can complete any removal of decay, imagery and fitting/filling in one session, so you can feel reassured that you don’t need to come back for completion. Not all dentists can offer this professional and fast service, Dr. M. Santaella is the first in Porto Rico to offer the CEREC technology to his patients.
Our CEREC Acquisition Unit is a mobile computer that takes a digital picture of your teeth and allows us to create a 3D image of your tooth for fast and easy same day dental crowns.
What advantages offer me?
First and foremost, the restoration can be performed in a single session, usually in about one hour. With CEREC® there’s no need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab. We won’t inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit. Second, the restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It’s metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
