Most dental restorative methods will require more than one visit to your dentist in Birmingham. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off, and have a permanent restoration put on. CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one visit to your Birmingham dentist. With CEREC at your dentist’s side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
For CEREC treatments your dentist in Birmingham will prepare the tooth in the normal way he would for a crown or a veneer. But instead of taking an impression of the tooth with “putty” an optical impression of the tooth is taken with a camera. This digital impression is then converted to computerised model of your tooth which the dentist modifies using CEREC 3D software. Once the Birmingham dentist is satisfied with the digital image the data is sent to a milling machine on site which produces your restoration within 30 minutes from a ceramic block. The restoration is then ready to fit.
