Until recently, teeth restoration procedures were known to involve multiple dental visits over the course of several weeks. Thankfully, this is no longer the case.
Courtesy of CEREC Prime Scan - a new and innovative machine, you can now walk away with a brand new smile after just one dental visit.
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC, Prime Scan is an intraoral scanner that lets you process over 1 million 3D points per second with a depth of up to 20 mm.
The output is readily available on a touch screen for dentists to make any necessary corrections or adjustments before creating a fresh set of crowns.
In a traditional root canal procedure, the dentist would drill into a damaged tooth to reach the pulp chamber before cleaning and sterilizing it. The dentist would then cap the tooth with a temporary crown, which would be replaced with a permanent one a few weeks later.
A CEREC procedure cuts this waiting period to a single day. Here’s what the process looks like:
A CEREC Crown can cost anywhere between $500- $1,500 per tooth. You can reduce the costs considerably depending on the type of dental insurance you have.
Using the CEREC Prime Scan machine is a major advantage as it enables dentists to help patients get their damaged roots replaced in a matter of hours.
