Advancements in technology have genuinely made the world a better place. In the field of medicine, so many individuals can attest to the fact that the patient’s experience has improved tremendously with time. For instance, the invention of the CEREC dental procedure is without a doubt a game-changer.
CEREC is CEramic REconstruction or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s a sophisticated system tasked with the designing and making of high-quality, metal-free dental restorations in just one patient visit. With the help of CAD/CAM technology and 3D photography, the dentist can design a virtual reconstruction be it inlay, crown, or bridge. What’s even more fascinating is the fact that he or she doesn’t have to take impressions, and if he or she combines the milling unit, he or she will have the capability of building the actual restoration while you’re still in your chair.
We still keep seeing more developments as recently another upgrade got introduced in the market. It’s the CEREC AC. This device enables you to have digital impressions for restorations. In other words, the boundaries of what you can do with it are limitless. Previously, a traditional appointment would go on for ages, and it forced patients to book a follow-up session with the dentist. But now, you’re able to go in and out in less than a few hours. Something else worth noting is, the restorations always look excellent, and they are flawlessly fit. The materials that constitute the make-up are metal-free and biocompatible!
