At Stratman Family Dentistry, we know that restorative dental care is our patients’ least favorite type of treatment because it usually starts with tooth decay negatively impacting the health of your teeth. However, with CEREC restorations, you can feel positive about your restorative dental needs again.
What is CEREC?
CEREC was developed in 1987. It was developed to create durable, more natural-looking dental crowns and prevent the pain that usually comes with aging dental work. These all-ceramic restorations are made to blend in with your natural tooth color and shape in just one dental appointment!
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction. CEREC is versatile, and can be used for most restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges. CEREC can be used to repair broken fillings, support teeth after root canals, protect decayed teeth, and even replace missing teeth.
How Does CEREC Work?
We use a cone beam to detect any hidden issues and create restorations that fit your mouth with precision. The cone beam computed tomography takes 3D images of your mouth, which gives Dr. Stratman the ability to more accurately create and place your crown, inlay, onlay, or dental bridge.
Dr. Stratman creates your restoration digitally via CAD/CAM software from the cone beam. No impressions, and no temporary dental work. It really is that efficient.
