What is CEREC®?
CEREC®, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a special technology that restores damaged teeth with a high-grade ceramic material, and is perfectly compatible with the natural mouth tissue. Teeth are made stronger and more attractive, while retaining their natural appearance. The CEREC® technology utilizes Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), by incorporating a computer, a camera, and milling a machine into a single instrument.
The process of CEREC® for Kinston, NC and Greenville, NC residents begins with an examination. Dr. Carlyle will discuss details of the procedure, and will answer any questions you may have. Once you are ready to proceed, a thin layer of reflective powder is applied, and the special 3D imaging camera takes photos of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is then transferred to the computer screen, and the CAD software designs the appropriate restoration based on your tooth’s unique tooth form and function. Next, the CAM uses its high-speed precision diamond bur to immediately create your custom restoration out of a single piece of high-quality ceramic. Afterward, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth with dentistry adhesive. From start to finish, the whole process is quick and painless, taking approximately one hour.
When Can CEREC® Be Used?
If you have cavities that require fillings, or damaged teeth that would benefit from restoration with crowns, veneers or inlays, CEREC® in Kinston, NC and Greenville, NC offers many advantages. The work is completed in a single visit, saving time and reducing anxiety. The procedure is extremely precise, allowing more of the natural tooth to be saved. Impressions do not need to be sent to a lab, and the need for temporary crowns or fillings is eliminated. The milled ceramic used looks natural and is stronger than white composite fillings. It is also anti-abrasive, resistant to plaque, and more durable than traditional ceramic veneers or crowns.
How Much Do CEREC® Crowns Cost in Kinston, NC?
The cost for CEREC® crowns varies and depends on the extent of treatment necessary. We accept cash, MasterCard, Visa, and personal checks. Insurance is accepted, and we also have financing available through CareCredit® and Compassionate Healthcare Services®.
