CEREC Dental Veneers

Posted in Veneers

Dental veneers have been an answered prayer to people that are looking for a dramatic smile-makeover that doesn’t require lengthy, time-consuming procedures like braces, whitening, or patchy restorative work. The beauty of dental veneers is that in just a single treatment appointment, the prepared veneer placed over the front of teeth instantly creates a straight, white, beautiful tooth. Applied across the front teeth, dental veneers can give anyone the Hollywood smile that they’ve always dreamed of.

In the past, veneer treatments required 2 or 3 appointments, with the application of the veneers done at the last appointment. This was due to the fact that the veneer needed to be fabricated at an off-site dental laboratory and re-delivered back to the dental office once it was made. CEREC changes the veneer treatment process completely! This advanced 3D imaging technology has been used for several years in order to provide same-day dental crowns and bridges to dental patients. Now, CEREC can make your dental veneers and allow your dentist to place them on your teeth in just one appointment.

CEREC works by utilizing 3D imaging technology. This allows a digital, virtual impression to be taken of the teeth. A virtual treatment plan is then designed by the dentist, with your input on the shape, size and color. After agreeing on the final plan, the image is electronically transferred into the on-site CEREC milling machine. The machine then makes each porcelain veneer right there at the office. Your dentist can then try the veneers in place; make any adjustments, and permanently bonding them over the front of your teeth. You will be thrilled to walk out of the office with an entirely new smile after just one visit!
