Our teeth go through a myriad of daily stress activities. We may even clench or grind subconsciously. Diagnosing the severity and whether the tooth is restorable is important as it determines treatment outcomes. Have a look at the example in the Smile Gallery. The entire cusp of the tooth is missing and fractured.
The most conservative treatment solution for this case was to restore the tooth with a aesthetically pleasing 3/4 ceramic crown bonded to the existing undamaged cusp. The restoration looks so natural that one is unable to tell the difference between tooth and ceramic material.
In this next case, we see a molar tooth under a rubber raincoat and we are able to visualize clearly a crack running through the tooth from one side to the next.
In this case, the patient was having severe pain on biting and chewing and a constant toothache. In the short and long term expectancy, there was little to remedy a crack of this nature. Hence alternative treatment options were sought.

Digital dentistry is at it’s very best when we are able to harness the high performance potential of CAD/CAM technology and guide it in how we are able to design, create, fabricate and custom characterize a beautiful ceramic restoration that when bonded to tooth in the end, feels and function as natural as it looks in a single visit. What does CEREC stand for?
With the CEREC Prime Scan AC with CEREC software and CEREC connectivity in our office, you can now have your single unit restoration ceramic onlay, inlay, crown or veneer in one single visit. Your time matters to us, as is our commitment to you matters to us.
Our digital scanner with the Prime scan allows us to better collaborate with our to Laboratories and Partners to do interactive treatment planning on complex cases from traditional prosthetic appliances to implant cases. We can lessen the carbon footprint using the CEREC connectivity in the long run to work together to provide the best results with high accuracy in other dental prosthesis like splints, night-guards, and mouth guards.
