Dentistry in a Day
With CEREC technology, Northridge Dental offers dentistry in a day. You can resume your daily life without a lengthy waiting period or multiple follow-up appointments.
How CEREC works
In the first step of CEREC, Dr. Matian will prepare your mouth so that a reflective powder can be applied to the appropriate teeth prior to applying the treatment. In order to do this, he will first take a digital image of your teeth using a special optical camera. With this camera, Dr. Matian is able to view the exact dimensions of your teeth in three dimensions. It is now time for your restoration to be designed. Using the patented CEREC software, Dr. Matian carefully designs your restoration. CEREC can be used to design a number of different types of restoration, including:
In order to match the shade of your neighboring teeth with the design, Dr. Matian selects the appropriate porcelain block. This block is then placed into the CEREC milling unit, which, in only a few minutes, shapes it into a custom-fitted restoration. Dr. Matian will then try on the new restoration, which allows him to make any final adjustments necessary, such as coloring. Once everything looks good, the restoration is cemented into place and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Lastly, make sure your teeth sit properly and check your bite.
Using computer assisted design and manufacture is beneficial because it provides extremely accurate restorations with durable materials. This means that only a minimal amount of tooth preparation is required, leaving more of the healthy tooth structure intact. With CEREC, you can have strong, healthy restorations in only one appointment.
