Dent en céramique fait par la technologie CEREC

Technology

CONE BEAM (CBCT)
Depending on the results of your visual exam, we may recommend cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging. CBCT devices allow us to get a 3D image of your teeth, which are used to establish an accurate diagnosis and to inform the clinical research conducted by the dentist.

 

Digital X-rays are needed when planning:

  • Dental implants (if further information is needed about the available bone mass and anatomical constraints, such as sinuses, nerve endings, etc.)
  • Complex wisdom tooth extractions
  • Complex orthodontic treatments
  • Complex root canals

 

CEREC (ceramic reconstructions)
CEREC technology is used to quickly create comfortable crowns, inlays and onlays. Your dentist will start by taking a scan of your teeth using an optical camera. The restoration is then modelled on the computer and immediately produced on site in a special milling machine.

 

Key benefits:

  • Your restoration is created and installed in a single appointment
  • Attractive and durable solution that often lasts more than 20 years
  • No dental impression material to trigger nausea
