CEREC® 3D technology has dramatically improved the way dentists like Dr. Bernstein can offer their patients inlay, onlay, and dental crown services. Whereas a variety of traditional restorative procedures required multiple trips to the dentist, CEREC® 3D's in-office technology allows damaged teeth to be restored in a single visit. CEREC® 3D technology is an integral part to Dr. Bernstein's practice, as it greatly improves her ability to restore damaged teeth and reestablish satisfying smiles.
Dr. Bernstein focuses especially on the making of onlays and inlays with CEREC® 3D. Whenever possible, Dr. Bernstein opts to place an onlay or inlay on a tooth. These restorative treatments necessitate less tooth reduction than is required for a dental crown, decreasing the chances of the restored tooth needing a root canal treatment at a later point and eliminating the need for further crowns.
With CEREC® 3D, tooth restoration can be completed in approximately an hour. Dr. Bernstein begins the procedure by taking a high-definition picture of the damaged tooth with a special CEREC® 3D camera. The image is then processed by Dr. Bernstein with the help of the revolutionary CEREC® 3D software to produce a three-dimensional model of the tooth. Using this model, CEREC® 3D creates an extremely accurate restoration of the damaged tooth. Once the restoration has been completed, Dr. Bernstein will be able to place and bond the inlay, onlay, or crown over the damaged tooth.
The restorations that CEREC® 3D creates are free of any metal, and their ceramic material allows them to look completely natural. The material that CEREC®3D crowns are created from can also be used to make strong and aesthetically pleasing fillings, veneers, and bridges.
Dr. Bernstein trusts CEREC® 3D technology to provide the best, most satisfying results for her patients. If you are interested in restoring damaged teeth with restorations made by CEREC® 3D technology, contact Dr. Bernstein's office today to schedule a consultation.
