What are the advantages of CEREC restorations?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) restorations utilize the latest CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing). CAD/CAM is a special type of imaging technology used to create ceramic restorations in our Keene, NH dental office.
So, whether you need a filling or a crown, Dr. Sean Drower can provide the latest in dental technology to his patients. CEREC eliminates the need for your case to be sent to a dental laboratory to be created. When the dental lab turnaround time is eliminated, it means you are not forced to wait for up to a month to receive your final restoration.
The special imaging utilized by CEREC eliminates the need for impressions. Dental impressions can be distorted and are very sensitive to time and moisture. Air bubbles, handling, and human error can all affect the quality of your dental impression, making it challenging to be completely accurate.
Dr. Sean Drower has received special training to be able to offer CEREC restorations in his office. He knows that convenience and quality are both priorities to his patients and CEREC technology provides both.
The porcelain restorations created using CEREC are strong and long-lasting. Filling made using CEREC have a 93% success rate over 15 years, which is much higher than that in conventional composite fillings.
