With the exceptional precision of CEREC (Ceramic Reconstruction) technology, Dr. Chagger can create beautiful computer generated porcelain restorations that are durable and perfectly blend in with the surrounding teeth. All this can be done in a single-appointment visit.
CEREC 3D eliminates the need for impressions and temporary restorations when preparing for veneers, crowns and fillings, hence reducing the number of visits required to just one! A powdered image of the tooth is taken with a CAD CAM 3D camera. The restoration is then designed and sent to an on-sight milling machine, which instantly cuts the restoration from a solid porcelain block ready to fit. This ground breaking technology, enables treatment to be fully completed within two hours.
A CEREC 3D tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it is also healthy. In the past, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold and other metals. With CEREC 3D our staff at Chagger Dental can use strong, tooth colored porcelain to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function. Porcelain closely matches the composition of natural tooth structure. As a result, when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. This reduces the likelihood of cracked teeth. Further, the porcelain is chemically bonded to your tooth, so that it is possible to save healthy tooth tissue whilst providing a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
CEREC 3D is the pinnacle of dental restoration technology, allowing us to perform complex procedures quickly, precisely and efficiently with stunning results.
