Cerec

CEREC technology can be used to repair or replace dental crowns or dental fillings by computers.

The CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology is a renowned aesthetic and resilient dental restoration method. Thanks to this revolutionary technology, Sourire Concept dentists are able to design, create and adjust ceramic parts to restore teeth that are fragile because of decay or extensive fillings, using preparation principles of the computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM).

The ceramic restoration with CEREC gives the tooth 98% of its original strength; it is therefore the most sustainable restoration technology in dentistry that currently exists on the market. Immediately made to measure, it is often used to avoid root canal treatment or to prevent tooth fracture. CEREC technology is also performed in a single appointment; you are only under anesthetic once, and there are no impressions with unpleasant pastes or a temporary crown that is likely to fall.

Sourire Concept was one of the first clinics in Québec to acquire this technology over fifteen years ago, and continued to follow its evolution. Today, we use the CEREC OMNICAM Technology.

To restore your teeth back to their original strength, do not settle for less!

Steps

Length: one single appointment

  1. Once the proper diagnosis is made, the tooth is prepared and scanned using a laser camera.
  2. The dentist is able to create the restoration design using the CEREC software.
  3. The piece is then fabricated from a ceramic block that resembles the color of your teeth in a robotic machining unit and then placed in a porcelain furnace to increase its strength.
  4. All that is left to do is to fit the piece on the tooth.

Advantages of CEREC Technology

CEREC Technology:

  1. Partially or totally replaces a faulty natural crown, or a faulty or damaged filling,
  2. Is less expensive than a crown or an inlay made in the laboratory which requires impressions made with unpleasant pastes to produce temporary crowns often fragile and unstable,
  3. Allows for a dental procedure that is performed in a single appointment, meaning you are under anesthesia only once.
