For years if one of your patients needed porcelain-ceramic dental work such as an inlay, onlay or a set of veneers, you would have to outsource to a dental laboratory. Once the unit was produced, your patient would have to come back for a second appointment to have it cemented into place.
Fortunately, dental technology has continued to advance. A Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, more commonly known as a CEREC Machine, can allow you to produce inlays, onlays and even dental veneers in your own office, during the course of a single appointment.
The system uses CAD/CAM software which is easy to use an intuitive to operate. This software has been in use in a wide variety of other industries for over three decades.
The CEREC machine handles grinding as well as milling through a user friendly software interface. The CEREC machine to uses sophisticated algorithms to eliminate imperfections and burs. This gives your patient a comfortable piece of dental work delivered and applied to maximize their satisfaction.
Because you are able to produce these units in-office, you will be able to see a return on your investment based on the number of procedures involved. This will greatly reduce your lab costs and open up more time in your schedule to service additional patients.
