In the past, receiving a dental restoration like a dental crown or bridge required several visits to your dentist’s office and the help of a dental laboratory to customize the restoration itself. However, CEREC, a state-of-the-art dental system, allows your dentist to create Crownsdental restorations right in their office. This fortunate advance in dental technology can save you time, money and effort. Find out more about CEREC with Dr. Matthew Roper and Dr. Matthew Scheerhorn at Ocotillo Trails Family Dentistry in Sun Tan Valley, AZ.

What is CEREC?
CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology to prepare, design and create porcelain dental restorations. Traditional restorations require that your dentist take a physical impression of the mouth and wait several weeks while the laboratory created the restoration. CEREC eliminates this entire laboratory step, streamlining the restoration process and allowing you to get back to your daily life quickly and easily.

How does CEREC work? 
Your dentist uses a special wand to create a 3D model of your mouth. This model transfers to a computer system with specialized design software. Your dentist uses the model as a basis for the design of the restoration. Once perfecting the design, the computer sends the information to CEREC’s carving machine, where it creates the actual restoration from a block of ceramic. Your dentist then puts the finishing touches onto the restoration and can then fit and bond it onto your prepared tooth.

The Benefits of CEREC in Sun Tan Valley, AZ
CEREC eliminates the need for a dental laboratory, thus eliminating the fees associated with them. It also means that your dentist can complete your entire restoration from start to finish in a single dental visit, saving you time and effort. CEREC uses only the most quality materials, ensuring your restoration will last many years to come. Your dentist is your best source of information on CEREC and can help you determine if it is right for you.
