For excellent overall health, it’s important to have good oral health. When a tooth is cracked, damaged, fragile or worn out, a ceramic restoration is the preferred option to protect and strengthen the tooth, and to enable it to function properly. Since 1983, CEREC technology has been used to embellish smiles. At Centre Dentaire Ahuntsic, we’ve been using this technology since 1999 for our patients’ well-being. Always at the forefront of technological, state-of-the-art innovations, today we use the CEREC Omnicam, the very latest tool of its kind.
How does CEREC work?
CEREC is a computer-aided ceramic restoration technique. It takes digital impressions of the damaged tooth and creates a digital model that is perfectly adjusted to the patient’s mouth. Before inserting the artificial tooth, we polish and prep it so that it looks natural – just like your real teeth. CEREC produces beautiful results in only one appointment.
What types of restorations are possible using CEREC?
When can a patient benefit from CEREC-produced ceramic restorations?
- To fix a cracked or broken tooth
- To strengthen a tooth after a root canal
- To strengthen a tooth with a large filling (amalgam or composite)
