How does CEREC create a restoration?

dental spa grand rapidsAfter the damaged enamel is cleaned out, the tooth surface is prepared. A highly magnified photo is taken and sent to the computer. Dr. Mulder uses this 3-D digital image to design your new restoration, whether it’s a crown, an inlay, or an onlay.

Then he chooses a shade of porcelain that matches your natural teeth from which to make the restoration. The CEREC milling machine shapes the raw porcelain to Dr. Mulder’s specifications, so that it will fit your tooth exactly. After placing and bonding it in position, Dr. Mulder will polish it to a glossy finish.

Which restorations can CEREC be used for?

CEREC may be used to create porcelain veneers, inlays and onlays, and crowns. Visit Dr. Mulder for your smile evaluation. If you need any of these procedures, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and esthetically they’ll be done using the CEREC system.

How long will my CEREC appointment last?

Most treatments using CEREC will take about an hour and a half, possibly longer if more than one restoration is being crafted.

Will my CEREC restoration look as good as a handcrafted restoration?

There’s no reason why a CEREC restoration shouldn’t look as good or better than a lab-fabricated one if an experienced and skillful doctor is at the helm. CEREC has become popular in premium dental offices around the nation not only for the convenience it offers, but also for its ability to create high-quality, natural-looking restorations. The CEREC software is very technologically advanced, but its final results depend on how well the dentist uses it. Dr. Mulder has excellent training and a great deal of experience using it, and you’ll be very pleased with your new teeth.
