CEREC CAD/CAM Technology
• Using a camera, a computer, and a milling machine, dentists can prepare and place natural looking restorations, such as crowns and onlays, while you wait.
• With this technology, dentists can salvage more of the healthy part of the tooth, which helps to restore strength comparable to your natural tooth structure.
• The CEREC procedure is simple: the patient is shown the defect, the tooth is prepared, and an optical impression is created in just a few seconds.
• The easy-to-use CEREC 3D camera always displays the tooth in constant magnification, regardless of the distance between the preparation site and the lens.
• Even virtually inaccessible areas can be precisely acquired. The three-dimensional optical impression of the preparation and the antagonists provides a dependable basis for designing the restoration.
