CEREC is the acronym for chair-side economical restoration of aesthetic ceramics, a system that allows patients to receive certain dental restorations in a single office visit using advanced dental technology.
Las Vegas cosmetic dentists Dr. Chin and Dr. Pharar are proud to offer patients the option of CEREC for some restorative dental work and cosmetic dentistry treatments. To learn if CEREC is the best treatment for your unique needs, please call Drs. Chin & Pharar Dentistry at (702) 445-7075 to schedule your consultation.
Dental Restorations with CEREC
CEREC is most often used for patients who need dental crowns, but it may also be used to create porcelain veneers and dental inlays/onlays.
CEREC employs state-of-the-art computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (known as CAD/CAM) to create your custom dental restoration. With three-dimensional digital imaging, CEREC can produce precise-fitting restorations without the need for manual teeth impressions or follow-up visits for placement and adjustments.
Advantages of CEREC
The most obvious advantage of CEREC is speed; most dental restorations require at least two office visits to ensure proper measurement and placement, in addition to time between visits for the restorations to be crafted.
Because CEREC can create most precision dental restorations in minutes and allows for the placement of your restorations during the same appointment, CEREC restorations are as cost-efficient as they are time-efficient. The restorations created with CEREC are made of dental-grade ceramics that are designed to look, feel and perform like your natural teeth; CEREC restorations contain no metal.
Although the use of CEREC can provide you with quality dental restorations faster and in a more cost-effective manner than traditional methods, it is best suited for patients who require no more than a few restorations.
To learn if CEREC is right for you, please contact Drs. Chin & Pharar Dentistry. We are proud to serve patients from the greater Las Vegas, Summerlin and Henderson, Nevada, areas.
