Traditionally, small cavities in teeth were filled with silver coloured amalgam. Although this provided a durable, functional solution, patients are left with teeth which have clearly been filled.
If the biting surface of the tooth was badly worn or decayed, patients needed a crown. A crown often required two or three treatment visits in order to be completed – moulds had to be taken and sent away so that a custom crown could be constructed – a time consuming process.
CEREC One Visit dentistry offers a fast, aesthetically pleasing alternative, using CAD/CAM dental technology to deliver a ceramic filling which is an attractive natural tooth colour.
