IN ONE APPOINTMENT
Ceramic restoration is done using 3D software. After removing the tooth decay, the dentist takes a photograph of the tooth and displays the image on the computer screen. The software then creates a virtual model of the dentition. The dentist proceeds to design the restoration and sends the parameters of this model to the milling chamber, which proceeds to cut the appropriate ceramic block.
The dentist imbeds this ‘replacement tooth’ and secures it using a sealant similar to cement.
This type of treatment is suitable for permanent tooth restorations and it can be performed in a single session at the dentist.
