Mitchell Katz DDS Cerec Crown Design

  1. 1. Designing a CEREC® crown<br />Dr. Mitchell S. Katz DDS<br />February 2010<br />
  2. 2. What is a CEREC®?<br />CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. <br />CEREC technology prevents having to wait weeks and return to the dentist office multiple times.<br />During a CEREC dental restoration, an optical impression of your tooth will be made. This high-resolution optical impression will be used to create a ceramic restoration that perfectly fits your tooth and matches the rest of your teeth.<br />In about 15 minutes, the CEREC milling machine will sculpt your ceramic restoration from a block of porcelain. Once the restoration has been tested for proper fit and so that it does not interfere with your bite, it is definitively bonded to your tooth. The end result is a ceramic restoration that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.<br />CEREC technology can be used to create:<br />Inlays<br />Onlays<br />Posterior Crowns<br />Anterior Crowns<br />Veneers<br />
  3. 3. First, we create an image of your teeth and bite<br />
  4. 4. Then, virtual models are created<br />
  5. 5. Next, we superimpose your bite image with the desired model<br />
  6. 6. Then, virtual models are put together, representing your actual bite<br />
  7. 7. Models are then separated, to analyze where your teeth touch when you put your teeth together<br />
  8. 8. A border of where the crown will sit on your tooth is created<br />
  9. 9. Your CEREC® crown is now designed!<br />The blue dots represent where the opposing teeth touch the crown<br />
  10. 10. Virtual models are created showing how your new CEREC® crown fits in exactly with your bite<br />
  11. 11. Your CEREC® crown is ready to be milled!In about 13 minutes, your new crown will be ready to confirm fit…<br />…and you’ll be on your way!<br />
