We restore smiles quickly with CEREC Inlays & Onlays in our office near Melbourne
Through the wonderful evolution of dental science, we now have several ways in which to repair tooth damage and improve overall oral health. One of the ways the value of a restoration is determined is by assessing its capabilities in comparison to previous techniques.
One of the innovative treatment options used to restore smiles is CEREC. With these chairside restorations, such as crowns, inlays & onlays we are able to provide our patients with biocompatible porcelain restorations in one visit. Our Melbourne offices are located in Sunbury and Moonee Ponds.
What most people know about CEREC restorations is that they are quick, completed in a single visit. Though this is certainly a welcome benefit, there is more to this treatment than timeliness:
- The high quality ceramic material used to make CEREC restorations has qualities that are very much like tooth enamel. Due to the nonabrasive, smooth texture of ceramic, the impact on surrounding teeth is very mild.
- Longevity. While ceramic restorations are gentle to tooth material, they are so durable that many of those that were placed decades ago are still in place today. Part of what aids in the durability of CEREC restorations is the similarity shared by ceramic and enamel.
- CEREC inlays and onlays are bonded to tooth structure. As a result of the precise bonding process, a CEREC restoration will have tight borders and an excellent fit while allowing for the preservation of natural tooth material. This is an important point at our office as we try to preserve as much tooth structure as possible. Inlays and onlays are preferable to full crowns where adequate tooth structure remains.
- Beauty is an important factor in restorative dentistry, even though the focus of this type of care is tooth repair. CEREC ceramic restorations are designed to match surrounding teeth in color and sheen, achieving a beautifully natural result.
One of the considerations given to dental restorations is longevity. We want to know that the work we do to repair a patient’s smile is going to last a very long time. The proven track record that CEREC has earned gives us confidence that this form of treatment will exceed our patients’ expectations.
