What is CEREC ®?
Damaged teeth can lead to aches, sensitivity, and turn into a health risk if not treated properly. However, getting traditional metal fillings can be an uncomfortable process and produce a less than ideal aesthetic result. Luckily, there’s an efficient, natural, and economically advantageous way to restore damaged teeth in as little as an hour. Allow us to introduce you to CEREC ®.
The word CEREC ® is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This tooth restoration process uses a durable ceramic material to fill in damaged teeth, seamlessly matching their natural color and keeping your smile intact.
One of the key benefits of this process is that the restoration can be performed in a single session, which usually lasts about one hour. With CEREC ® technology it’s no longer necessary to take an impression and send it off to a lab. We’re able to treat your teeth immediately, easing any pain and eliminating the need for a second visit.
In addition, the ceramic material blends right in with the color of your teeth and is compatible with your mouth tissue. This new approach to tooth restoration is high-grade, anti-abrasive, and plaque-resistant, making it long lasting. Not only is it more natural looking, CEREC ® also allows us to be more precise and save even more of the healthy part of your tooth.
It’s a win-win situation. Give us a call at 812-336-2688 and we’ll schedule an appointment to restore your smile to its glory days.
