This means that Dr. Schwartz can create your crown from a high quality ceramic material while you sit in the chair and relax. Whether you have a broken tooth, fractured tooth, or severe structural damage, CEREC can restore it back to its natural strength and appearance.
How does it work?
The process starts similar to how a crown is traditionally prepared. First, the area is numbed so that the broken tooth can be prepared and shaped to receive the crown. However, instead making a mold of the tooth, Dr. Schwartz will use a camera to take a digital image of the tooth which is then sent to the CEREC machine. The machine converts the image into a three dimensional digital model on the computer screen.
Dr. Schwartz then uses this model to configure the details of the crown such as size, shape, and color and sends this data to the milling machine. The milling machine then takes a block of porcelain and carves it into the shape of a dental crown. This process only takes about 20 minutes. When the crown is finished, it is placed on top of the broken tooth and cemented in placed.
