Smiles Peru uses the revolutionary CEREC CAD/CAM digital system for ceramic tooth restorations and veneers in a single visit. The process involves using an intraoral camera to take a digital impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth. The ideal restoration is then designed by computer software. Next, the milling unit (a 3-dimensional printer) carves (“prints”) the ceramic block to match the computer’s design.
Some ceramics may require additional time in an oven to be brought to appropriate hardness, however, most single restorations with can be completed in a single visit. The ceramic chosen will depend upon the patient and the location of the restored tooth.
