What does a CEREC same-day restoration visit look like?

Dr. Patel designs your treatment plan based on a comprehensive consultation and diagnosis, which includes taking a digital scan of your mouth. Based on the scan, Dr. Patel develops a 3D visual of your restoration treatment plan. Once your 3D visual is finalized, the restoration plan is sent to the CEREC milling chamber, where robotic equipment assembles your all-ceramic restoration materials. Once the materials are fabricated, the computer technology verifies the size, shape, and fit before conducting the final shade and characterization of your restoration treatment. Dr. Patel conducts a final fitting before sending you on your way.

Follow-up appointments for CEREC

Once you’ve completed your CEREC same-day restoration appointment, it is essential to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Patel to assess the need for any repairs or adjustments. Properly fitted restorations provide a natural-looking smile, align the bite, and foster healthy chewing and speech patterns.
