Benefits of CEREC® One Day Restorations
Completed in-house from start to finish, CEREC® one day restorations offer a number of distinct advantages over traditional tooth restorations. Some key benefits are highlighted below.
- Impressions are taken digitally with powder-free scanning, therefore eliminating the need for messy, putty-like materials.
- The advanced CEREC® Omnicam enables continuous 3D imaging in natural color for unparalleled accuracy and customization.
- Restorations are constructed from all-ceramic, metal-free materials using our advanced CEREC® milling system.
- The design, construction, and implementation of restorations can be completed in a single day.
Ultimately, CEREC® one day tooth restorations can provide an unprecedented level of quality and customization in a significantly reduced amount of time.
The Biological Identical Dentistry Approach
Dr. Mabry and Dr. Murphy utilize the minimally invasive approach known as biological identical dentistry whenever possible. This conservative method involves mimicking the patient’s existing crown, bridge, or other restoration by crafting an identical replacement with the CEREC® system. Biological identical dentistry can be highly beneficial for patients who need their tooth’s structural integrity improved, since the approach is designed to create the exact same size and shape of the previous tooth or tooth replacement. This allows patients to maintain the same dental anatomy and not need to replace items like night guards or Invisalign® trays that have been specially molded to their teeth. Our dentists will discuss this option with you during your appointment to determine if it is a viable technique for your CEREC® restorations.
Procedure for CEREC® One Day Restorations
To begin your procedure, our doctors will scan your teeth using CEREC® Omnicam technology. Data from the scan will then be transferred to a computer software system where they can access a 3D image of your teeth and customize your restoration from the convenience of a chairside computer screen. Once the design for the restoration is complete, it is wirelessly downloaded to our in-office milling machine and then constructed using non-metallic ceramic materials. Following its construction, our cosmetic dentist will delicately secure your newly-customized restoration to your tooth and/or teeth, effectively completing the process.
The entire procedure can typically be performed in as little as one day, depending on the extent of your restoration needs. As an added benefit, you can generally expect to be able to return to your normal activities later that same day.
