Patients seeking quality dental care are urged to work with a dentist who has the most advanced technologies available at his fingertips. Dr. Brendon Prestwich and the staff at Ivory Dental are excited to offer some of the most sought-after solutions in their practice. This includes CEREC.
What is CEREC?
CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions and fabricate same-day restorations for patients. This includes:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Porcelain veneers
The machine takes digital impressions of the prepared tooth, and then converts it through the software into a drawing. This is then milled out from a block of porcelain while patients wait, allowing individuals to enjoy same-day restorations. Traditional dental offices still take conventional molds of the prepared teeth, place temporaries, and reschedule patients to come in later for the placement of their repairs. Thankfully, patients no longer have to wait for their smile to be restored and can enjoy immediate restoration with CEREC technology.
Are CEREC restorations as high of quality as laboratory-made restorations?
Yes! Plus, CEREC restorations are extremely precise, and if there are any concerns, a new one can be made right away in the dental office. Patients can avoid weeks of waiting and the unnecessary placement of temporary restorations by going with a dental staff that has CEREC technology available. Not every dental practice has invested in this technology, making Ivory Dental the practice of choice for patients around Albuquerque, New Mexico.
