    Introduction to CEREC Machines

    CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, represents a groundbreaking advancement in the field of dentistry. CEREC machines are specialized computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems that allow dental professionals to create and place dental crowns in a single visit. This innovation has transformed the way dentists and patients approach restorative dental procedures, offering numerous advantages that significantly benefit dental patients.

    Coast Dental uses advanced technology, like CEREC, to give excellent service to patients at our office. We use Primescan, a 3D X-ray machine, to create digital images of the patient's mouth and jaw. The cone beam technology used in this machine is more accurate than traditional X-rays and creates less radiation. We then have very accurate imagery from which to make and complete the CEREC crown procedure.

    We use our Primemill machine to customize and mill crowns right in our office with minimal waiting time. The crowns we can create are very durable and tooth-like in appearance, making them an excellent choice regardless of the speediness of the process. However, these tools are extremely efficient, which is how we are able to offer single-visit crown and bridge appointments. Dental restoration has never been easier!


    CEREC Offers Convenience
    and Time Efficiency

    The primary benefit of CEREC machines is the unbeatable convenience and time efficiency they offer to dental patients. Traditional crown procedures typically involve multiple appointments, often spanning over several weeks. Once a mould is taken in the dentist's office, it's sent to a separate lab where the crowns are created, taking a lot of time. Patients must wear temporary crowns and make extra trips to the dentist for fittings and adjustments, which is inconvenient.

    In contrast, CEREC technology streamlines the process. During a single dental appointment, the dentist uses the CEREC machine to digitally scan the affected tooth or teeth. We can then design a custom crown and fabricate it right there in the office. CEREC dental crowns do not require a metal post, like traditional dental crowns, making them ideal for patients with metal allergies.

    This eliminates the need for messy impressions, temporary crowns, and lengthy waiting periods. Patients can leave the dental office with their permanent crown in place on the very same day, saving them valuable time and reducing the overall treatment duration. Temporary crowns are generally ill-fitting and somewhat uncomfortable for patients, so eliminating them altogether while also avoiding a secondary appointment is a huge benefit!

    Completing crown procedures in one visit reduces the chances of complications or discomfort that can come from temporary crowns. Patients can resume their normal activities without the inconvenience of having to return for additional appointments.

    Precision, Aesthetics, and Patient Satisfaction

    CEREC machines also offer exceptional precision and esthetic outcomes, which contribute to the overall satisfaction of dental patients. CEREC technology scans and designs crowns to fit perfectly and look like natural teeth in colour and shape. This perfect fit reduces the chance of issues like bite problems or gum irritation that can happen with poorly fitting crowns.

    Furthermore, CEREC technology allows for the use of high-quality, tooth-coloured ceramic materials for crown fabrication. This durable material makes crowns that resemble and function like real teeth providing lasting durability and comfort for patients. Patients can smile, eat, and speak with confidence, knowing that their restoration is virtually indistinguishable from their surrounding teeth.

    Our dentists are in control of the process from start to finish, allowing us to ensure proper customization and troubleshooting on-site. By using our 3D X-ray scans, we can ensure that the crown is moulded to fit your tooth with a great deal of accuracy. This technology fits seamlessly with our milling machine, creating a durable tooth

    The convenience and esthetic benefits of CEREC single-visit crowns translate into higher patient satisfaction. Patients appreciate the reduced chair time, the elimination of temporary crowns, and the ability to leave the dental office with a fully restored smile in just one appointment.
