The CEREC Process
Your Wichita Family Dental CEREC tech will use a 3D camera to take a digital picture of your tooth. No need for traditional, messy impressions that can be uncomfortable and cause gagging. The digital impression is quick, clean, and painless. The CEREC software then converts the digital picture to a 3D model of your tooth and your CEREC tech will design your restoration within minutes.
Your CEREC tech will choose a ceramic block that closely matches the shade of your damaged tooth. It will be inserted into the CEREC milling unit, where two diamond-coated burs will carve the block into the correct shape. Your tech will color and polish your restoration so that it perfectly matches your surrounding teeth and your doctor will bond your ceramic restoration into place. Your same-day dental crown from Wichita Family Dental will be ready within hours.
