Yes! For many situations there is now a method for doing this, called CADCAM CEREC dentistry. Long-term studies have shown that this technique results in restorations of excellent esthetics and durability. The CEREC treatment procedure means:
- No Conventional Impressions The CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions.
- No Temporaries CEREC restorations are milled out of a high-quality ceramic material in just a few minutes. They are ready to be placed immediately. This takes away the need for temporary fillings and crowns.
- No Long Waiting Periods Because CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment. This means less time off work, less travel, and no need for more injections!
There will always be situations needing conventional dentistry but fortunately CEREC dentistry will provide much benefit to many grateful patients.
