How does CEREC work?

After examining the tooth and determining the best course of treatment, Dr. Busch will prepare the tooth in order to make room for the new porcelain restoration. Upon completion of the tooth’s preparation, we will use the CEREC state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression, which replaces the physical impression required in traditional crown and bridge procedures. No more long waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.

Using intuitive and precise controls, Dr. Busch then manipulates the three-dimensional digital image and verifies all aspects of restoration for accuracy and assurance of an ideal fit.

When Dr. Busch has approved the design of the restoration the specifications are sent to the integral milling machine to create the restoration. Within minutes, the all-ceramic, color-matched restoration to be ready for permanent placement.

The new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence. The tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.
