Single Visit Restoration (CEREC By Sirona)
CEREC By Sirona (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction) is a Computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing method for reconstructing tooth restorations. This time-saving, computer-aided process allows dentists themselves to efficiently construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations directly at the point of treatment (chairside) in a single appointment.
This process entails taking a digital impression or scan, designing the restoration on the computer (computer-aided design), and manufacturing the restoration (computer-aided manufacturing).
Cadent iTero™ Digital Impression System
Cadent iTero digital impression system is now being used at United Dental for dental restorations (such as dental crowns, invisaligns, implants etc). This system allows dentists to take an accurate 3D digital scan of your teeth and bite, make real-time adjustments, and transmit the impression over the Internet to Cadent. Cadent will then construct a model which will be sent to the dental lab. This allows the lab to create highly precise dental restoration.
While your digital impression is being made, you will be able to view the entire process on a computer screen.
