These restorations can be made out of a variety of materials, but are usually made from ceramic.
Ceramic is used for several reasons. First and foremost, this particular material has the ability to be made in such a way that perfectly matches the appearance and color of your teeth. It is better accepted into your mouth; your gums are better able to reform around it. Ceramic is also a great material for those who suffer from metal allergies.
What is CEREC®?
CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, is the latest technology for dental restorations. With this technology in the office, what used to be a two-visit procedure can be done in a single visit. CEREC is a type of CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) process that allows Dr. James Yang to create your custom restoration on the spot. An optical impression of your mouth is taken and the technology uses that impression to make it.
