CEREC CAD-CAM Crown Restoration

 

 

 

In the past, the traditional methods for making tooth-colored cosmetic dental restorations, crowns, and veneers involved a series of dental appointments and final fabrication of the restoration by a dental laboratory. Today CAD/CAM allows a Houston cosmetic dentist to custom-fabricate any of these in the office and cement them in place - all in a single appointment.

The first step in using dental CAD/CAM is tooth preparation. The second step involves taking an impression, not by pressing a soft material over the tooth, but by taking a picture with a special camera that sends the prepared tooth's exact dimensions into a computer.

The cosmetic dental restoration is next designed with the aid of a computer, and then your Houston cosmetic dentist selects a material that is colored to match your specific tooth. The material is then placed into a miniature milling machine. In just a few minutes it produces a precise, custom-fitting cosmetic dental restoration.
Finally, the new cosmetic dental restoration is test-fitted, color adjusted, and bonded in place. After your bite and fit are checked, you'll have a new, CAD/CAM cosmetic dental restoration - in just one appointment
