HOW IS THE DENTAL TREATMENT PROCESS WITH CEREC CAD GLASS DEVICE?
Optical, digital measurement of the prepared cavity or the prepared tooth is taken from the inside of the mouth with a camera. The design is made with a computer program suitable for the purpose, the block is scraped and sintered if necessary. The detailed steps of the process are as follows.
In the 1st stage: measurements are taken with an optical camera. The measurement taken is transferred directly to the computer to which the camera is connected.
Stage 2: After the computer renders the images in three dimensions, the margins and contours are determined by the dentist, and a suitable design is made for the tooth. With its biogeneric feature, the system can offer restorations similar to the existing teeth of the patient.
Stage 2: The dentist can perform operations within the framework of this recommendation, as well as make any changes he wishes. It can control the contact points with the opposing teeth, virtually wear, add, change the contours, increase or decrease the frequency of the contact points with the opposing teeth.
Step 3: After the design is finished, the appropriate color and size block is selected. The tooth form is obtained by milling the block with a micro-turning device.
The blocks used with the CEREC system can be glass ceramics reinforced with feldspathic and leucite, as well as porcelain ceramics with high resistance such as lithium disilicate, nano ceramics.
In addition, the CEREC system mills the porcelain to be used on it together with the zirconium infrastructure, allowing these two parts to be combined with each other later on.
Stage 4: It is the stage of polishing, coloring and glazing of porcelain, zirconium and material, which is given the form of prosthetic tooth or inlay or onlay filling. High-tech furnaces are used for this process.
After the digital measurement is taken with the CAD CAM system used in the clinic, the design and production is carried out next to the patient and the process can be completed in a single session.
Digital Dentistry and Smile Design
Another advantage of digital dentistry is that aesthetic smile design can be done. The Cerec system allows the individual to make the desired changes in accordance with the face and mouth structure, to control the contact points with the opposing tooth, to make virtually abrasion, insertion, contour changes, the frequency of the contact points with the opposing teeth, on the teeth transformed into a three-dimensional form with the help of a micro camera. allows it to be increased or decreased.
In addition, the images of the possible finished teeth obtained with this method are matched with the real face photograph of the individual, and the dentist and the individual have the opportunity to see the new restoration before it is finished. Information about the aesthetic smile design to be acquired will be obtained before the procedures.
