How does cerec work?
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera which takes a digital impression that is relayed to a computer. This information is then sent via a wireless signal to a milling machine which makes the restoration from a block of ceramic. Your Leeds cerec dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. Once the new tooth has been made it iis stained and glazed to give an accurate colour match and then it is bonded onto the prepared exisiting tooth. The whole process from the design to the final fit takes about one hour
