Cerec dentistry is the ultimate in Digital Dental Technology.
It is an advanced technological method used to design and mill, ceramic crowns, bridges and inlays within 2-3 hours. This is an ideal treatment plan for tourists and patients that have limited time available to them.
A digital photograph will be taken of the patients tooth, using an infrared camera. The Image is then transferred directly to a computer where the dentist will design the inlay and crown. Once designed, it is milled at the practice and ready to be placed on the same day. No need for unpleasant impressions or second injections.
The Omnicam is an intraoral optical device used to capture a continuous digital video impression scan at a rate of 18 images per second. It is inserted directly into the patients mouth without any time consuming, specific preparation. Proprietary software translates the scans into precise, virtual 3D models in natural color that are used to propose customized ceramic restorations for the patient.
Advanced Technology: The CEREC Omnicam
The coordinated state-of the-art milling machine, the CEREC MC XL, fabricates all-ceramic restorations using a digital feed from the Omnicam station. In roughly 12 minutes, the milling machine can carve a simple crown restoration from a block of solid porcelain. In addition to crowns, inlays and onlays, the MC XL is able to also mill fixed bridges, veneers and implant abutments and implant crowns.
