Dr. Fallah uses CEREC technology for many repairs and restorations of teeth - such as replacing whole teeth, fixing and filling cavities, and also for porcelain crowns.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
This state-of-the-art CEREC CAD CAM technology is used in Dr. Fallah's Carlsbad dental office and allows Dr. Fallah to provide his patients top of the line, natural-looking, and fast ceramic restorations.
The in-house CEREC computer assisted restoration procedures can be completed in only one visit in most cases, and are often referred to as One Visit Crowns or One Day Crowns.
Exactly how does the CEREC process work?
1. Dr. Fallah prepares your tooth for the restoration simply by putting a coating of white powder over it.
This tooth preparation is done in a matter of seconds rather than minutes, and you do not have to endure the old messy impression material
dripping in your mouth.
2. Dr. Fallah then captures 3-D digital impressions with CEREC AC Blue Cam which uploads the information to a computer.
Once the image of the damaged area is loaded, CEREC software automatically designs the shape of the restoration.
The model created is refined and refinished by Dr. Fallah, using 3-D software and this information is sent electronically to a milling machine in the office.
3. This machine creates your repair or restoration out of a block of ceramic or composite.
The cutting and shaping of crowns is completed by computer-controlled diamond head cutters.
Once completed, it is simply fitted and then placed in your mouth all within one convenient visit - one office, one appointment, one day.
