CEREC in Rio Rancho, NM
What is CEREC 3D?
CEREC 3D is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
How does the instrument work?
CEREC 3D uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine a11 one instrument. The dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth.
What does this innovation mean for a patient?
It means a one visit crown. Dentists no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated. It also means a better looking smile. A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring your smile. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.
