CEREC treatment in Munich
Plan and fabricate dentures entirely without an impression? This is easily possible with CEREC treatment in Munich, as the latest technology for digital treatment is used here. In one session, professionally, quickly and precisely fitting models for dentures or inlays can be created. For radiant teeth and a greater sense of well-being - of course without having to suffer for it or wait for a long time.
What is CEREC actually?
CEREC is an abbreviation for Ceramic Reconstruction. The digital form of treatment is supported by a computer and state-of-the-art programmes and, in keeping with the name, provides ceramic dental restorations. The exact details of the technology we use can be found further down the page. With this technology, whole teeth, inlays, crowns and bridges can be created within a short period of time and can be placed precisely.
The difference with this form of treatment is the fact that the entire recording of the teeth and creation of the restoration works digitally. This means significantly less time and discomfort for the patient than would otherwise be the case.
What are the advantages of CEREC treatment in Munich?
A major advantage of CEREC treatment is without question the reduced time required to make a dental prosthesis. The use of impressions in particular is less pleasant for many patients and sometimes leads to gagging or attempts to avoid it.
There is therefore no need to worry about gagging during CEREC treatment, which makes it directly much more pleasant than the classic procedure. Other advantages of CEREC are the following, which should be noted:
- relatively inexpensive
- Precisely adapted solutions
- High-quality and optimally compatible option
- Quick and easy solution - also for patients who tend to shy away from the dentist
- Natural appearance due to colour matching with the neighbouring teeth
- most modern and almost completely painless solution without further detours
- the denture can be completed within one session
- the results can be shown on the screen beforehand - for an exact adjustment
Dental prosthesis in one session with CEREC with us in Munich
Often, with tooth loss, as well as with most restorations, one must first live with a temporary solution. This is anything but pleasant for many patients, especially if there is clearly visible damage to the tooth or visible tooth loss. The possibility of a CEREC treatment to directly obtain a permanent and not temporary solution in only one appointment is therefore particularly worth emphasising.
Natural and long-lasting with ceramic
In addition, the ceramic material used is characterised by the fact that it is almost invisible and can be visually matched to the rest of the teeth very easily. Last but not least, there is no need to worry that short durability is the result of this quick solution.
According to experience, the said dental restoration lasts more than 30 years and can thus be used even longer than gold. It is therefore less surprising that gold is no longer used so much in dental restorations. Ceramic is characterised by a correspondingly great hardness, does not discolour as easily and also does not cause dark edges at the gum line.
CEREC treatment procedure in Munich
In the first step, we determine together in our practice what the current situation of your teeth looks like. To do this, we use our modern, three-dimensional camera, which records exactly what your teeth are like, what needs to be taken into account and what dimensions the denture or inlay must have.
Thanks to the latest technology, all important data is recorded and made available in the shortest possible time, which is much faster and more accurate than could ever be the case with a classic dental impression. In the next step, our software creates an exact image of the respective tooth based on the available data.
This data is then used by our special machine, which produces the denture, which then only has to be colour-matched to the neighbouring teeth and precisely milled. An inlay or a corresponding denture made in this way is inserted into the prepared gap or the respective tooth. After polishing, the CEREC treatment is completed and no further session is required for the restoration.
The latest technology with CEREC treatment
For an optimal fit with our patients, it is important to use the latest technology that brings exact results. In our practice in Munich, we use both the Prime Scan Scanner and a Primemill milling cutter. These technologies bring the advantage that the teeth are scanned exactly and the dentures are milled just as precisely. In addition, we only use high-quality materials that are well tolerated and do not cause any discomfort.
After all, with a dental prosthesis, as with any foreign material in the mouth, it is important that, on the one hand, only absolutely compatible material is used. On the other hand, the exact fit plays a very important role and should not be underestimated here. Otherwise, inaccurately fitted solutions only cause discomfort, which can, however, be avoided.
Impression-free scans with CEREC Primescan
Forget about taking the old cumbersome impressions. With our CEREC Primescan we can make a much better & more accurate "digital impression" without having to make an impression. This technology is very accurate, saves patients the impressions and also saves time. With digital impressions, a laser scans the surfaces of the teeth and gums. The software converts the scanned data into 3D images, which can be checked directly by the dentist. If you want to learn more about this - watch the short video and see for yourself.
3D Planning - Digital Smile Design
With special software, intraoral 3D scans and photos of the patients, treatments can be planned digitally. These plans are especially important for aesthetic work in the sensitive anterior region. Tooth movements with Invisalign, treatment with veneers and other treatments can be visualized well.
Cad/Cam - Milling
Dental prostheses (crowns, bridges, implant crowns, etc.), splints and temporaries can be designed on the computer after digitalization of models or directly after intraoral scans and then milled in great detail. Plastics, metals and also ceramics are used here.
With 3D printers it is possible, for example, to print models after an intraoral scan. Bite splints, drilling templates and temporaries can be printed. The DLP process is used, in which the workpieces are produced from liquid plastics by UV light curing. Of course, only biocompatible materials are used (class IIa medical products).
FAQ about CEREC treatment with us in Munich
In the following, we will take a closer look at some of the frequently asked questions regarding CEREC dentures. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
The entire treatment takes place in one session. We assume a total working time of between 90 and 120 minutes per tooth, so that longer times may be required if there are several teeth to be treated. The treatment can be completed in one session, a temporary restoration is not provided here.
We use ceramics in the CEREC method because they are compatible and durable options that look very close to the real tooth.
Depending on dental hygiene and individual possibilities as well as diet, a durability of around 30 years can be assumed. It is possible that the dentures can be used for longer. In some cases, the durability exceeds that of gold, making it a particularly long-lasting option.
Pretty much every patient can benefit from dental restorations with CEREC after an appropriate consultation. The decisive factor is the extent of the existing damage, which must always be taken into account. Dental restorations in this form are ideal when a quick, immediately usable and metal-free solution is required or sought.
If the tooth is very badly damaged, it may no longer be suitable for treatment. It should be noted that if there is severe damage under the gum, the Prime Scan will no longer be able to detect it correctly.
Treatment with CEREC is therefore only a solution if the damage is not too severe. We can find this out before we start by taking an X-ray and clarify whether the treatment is suitable or not.
No, the prime scan is always sufficient for recording the teeth. An impression, which some patients also find somewhat unpleasant, is thus superfluous.
Yes, the dentist needs corresponding further training to be able to implement the fabrication of the ceramics. Only then are custom-fit solutions possible, so that we always stay up to date with the latest technologies and possible new developments.
