Crooked teeth or a gap in the front teeth can be a big confidence buster for most people. Everyone wants a perfect set of teeth that white, shiny and fall straight in the mouth. Not only does that add to the beauty of the face but also helps in giving you a better smile.
While before dental restoration was a painful, expensive and extremely time consuming job, with newer technologies this has become much simpler. One of the most popular and simple forms of cosmetic dentistry is the use of CEREC in order to restore yellow teeth, fit crowns and fill gaps.
CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is a new age dentistry procedure that is carried out with the use of a CEREC Acquisition Unit, which allows you to create a 3D image of your teeth with the use of digital technology and fix the problem.
What sets CEREC apart is that unlike ordinary fillings of amalgam, it makes use of a ceramic (porcelain) filling or crown. This filling is much smoother, non-abrasive and can be easily matched to the color of your teeth.
What are the advantages of CEREC restoration?
There are many advantages of this procedure over older ones. One of the biggest pros is the time period this procedure takes. You can easily get it completed in one sitting and don’t need to revisit your doctor for multiple sessions.
Another advantage is that it is very natural looking and the end result matches with the overall appearance of your teeth, giving the same color and texture. It is also metal free so you don’t need to have any more silver and gold color fillings!
CEREC’s ceramic material is high-grade and well matched to the tissue in your mouth, making it anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. This lets the dentist be very precise and save as much of the healthy part of the tooth as possible.
Overall, CEREC restoration is a simple, quick and non-invasive procedure that can be used to fix a number of dental problems without the worry of your teeth looking artificial. It is widely used by dentists all over the world and has become one of the most popular dental procedures.
