What Is CEREC Used For? | Chapel Hill NC

CEREC Inlay Restoration

As recurring decay causes stress fractures on the enamel, patients with amalgam fillings frequently display amalgam breakdowns and damage to the tooth structure. Contrary to the majority of crowns made in a lab, CEREC inlay restorations maintain the tooth’s structural integrity. The materials used in CEREC guarantee the greatest bond strength and improve attractiveness, giving you the smile you want. The smooth, tooth-colored replacement of dental material lost to cavities is created with CEREC inlay restorations. The CEREC inlays perfectly replicate the color and structure of your teeth using cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology.

CEREC Onlay Restorations

Silver amalgam fillings frequently lead to unattractive crowns and the eventual need for replacement due to recurring deterioration. To preserve the original structure and give the tooth a more natural appearance, CEREC onlays are applied to the tooth rather than replacing the existing amalgam filling. Onlays, also known as partial crowns, are larger than inlays and cover the surface ridges on the tooth. The CEREC material resembles enamel and mimics the look and feel of natural teeth.

CEREC Crowns

Replacement crowns are frequently required by patients who lose fillings, and their implantation can require up to three appointments. However, CEREC only needs to be installed once and mimics the look and feel of a natural tooth. The shape, strength, size, and appearance of a damaged tooth are all restored by crowns, which are tooth-shaped coverings that are placed over teeth. With CEREC crowns, you may restore your natural smile while maintaining a healthy tooth structure.

CEREC Veneers

Chipped teeth are frequently the result of compacted composite material repairs to teeth. In only one visit, CEREC veneers can restore the incisal length and angle, giving the tooth its previous appearance. The front surface of teeth is covered by veneers, or thin laminates of tooth-colored porcelain, which are bonded to the teeth. This improves the appearance of the front of the teeth. The CEREC veneers are created specifically for each tooth to provide a precise fit.

Multiple Restorations

It used to take several appointments for patients who had multiple unsuccessful restorations to get a full restoration. However, several inlays and onlays can be created, cemented, polished, and implanted simultaneously using CEREC. With the use of CEREC technology, several restorations can be finished in a single appointment, giving you a gorgeous smile in a shorter amount of time.
