Before the restoration process, your tooth must be prepared to ensure a successful treatment. Your dentist will take pictures of the affected tooth using the CEREC imaging solution. These images are transposed onto a computer screen and your dentist will view the tooth from every angle to design the perfect restoration. Once the design is complete, it will be transmitted to the milling unit.
A block of ceramic that matches your tooth colour will be inserted into the milling machine which will then create a full crown, onlay or inlay. Your dentist will perform a dry fix before affixing the restoration to the tooth. Once a perfect fit is established, the restoration will be polished and put onto the tooth with a dental adhesive.
