Technology is changing our world at an incredible rate. New devices are being invented and implemented to make our lives more comfortable and more convenient, at a remarkable pace. The world of dental treatment is experiencing a similar technological revolution that is changing the way dentistry is practised and making lives easier and more comfortable for patients.
One of the most notable and impressive new dental technologies is known as Cerec, and in many respects represents the future of modern dental practise. In the past, if a patient needed a dental crown or a veneer to repair a damaged tooth or restore the health of a decayed one, it would take several appointments and several weeks to design and fit. Cerec has made this process possible in a single visit to your Chepstow dentist.
Using new dental equipment like digital x-rays and 3D imaging, the dentist can create an incredibly accurate picture of your mouth in only a few minutes. There is no need for time consuming traditional x-rays or dental moulds. Using this digital image the dentist can then begin to design the new crown or restoration on the computer. When satisfied with the appearance, they can then instruct a computer-guided mill to sculpt the new tooth from a single piece of carefully colour-matched porcelain. This manufacturing process can take as little as six minutes per tooth, which is an incredible improvement on the previous laboratory method.
Also known as chair-side treatment, Cerec reduces the need for dental appointments, making your life more convenient and shortening waiting times for all other patients. With stunning results possible, it is easy to see why more dentists and even more patients are opting to choose Cerec dental restorations.
