The revolutionary CEREC technology by Dentsply Sirona is now available in Pune.

On January 18 2017 at Hotel Deccan Rendezvous, Dental practitioners Dr. Vijay Tamhane( BDS, Msc, MOI) and Dr. MakrandThoke (BDS, Implantologist)  introduced an alternative to conventional methods of making a crown. CEREC by Dentsply Sirona allows the dentist to treat his patient in one appointment only.

While admittedly, there are better things to think of than the new crown inserted as suggested by your Dentist, this one promises to be an experience, surprisingly, like never before. With the aid of CEREC by Dentsply Sirona the way to a dental prosthesis is now more pleasant than ever.

 What is CEREC? CEREC stands for CEremicREConstruction. With CEREC your treatment is faster and comfortable, because the dental prosthesis is created digitally regardless of whether you need a partial crown, crown or a veneer. CEREC eliminate inconvenient impressions, messy materials, time-wasting temporaries, and unnecessary reduction of healthy tooth structure.

 So how does it work? After examination and deciding the treatment plan, the dentist scans the area to be treated usingintraoral camera and the prosthesis is designed on computer. The CEREC software analyses the image and calculates restoration proposals. The restoration is fabricated directly at the clinic itself and the final restoration is then given the look and feel of along with qualities of a real tooth. This is done on the CEREC SpeedFire, which is the smallest and fastest sintering furnace in the market and can sinter a crown in typically 10–15 minutes. If required, a glaze can be applied with the CEREC SpeedGlaze that can be fired in just a few minutes. The restoration is then ready for you. The CEREC Method ensures 100% precise results – meaning durable, safe restorations that also meet the highest aesthetic standards.

Dr. MakrandThoke leading implantologist from Pune says, “CEREC enables your dentist to insert aesthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single session leaving you free to deal with the other important things rather than plan around the next visit to the dentist. But the advantage doesn’t stop there! The new dental prosthesis made by CEREC, will maintain your lovely natural smile for years to come without the fear of a repeat visit to the dentist after receiving the prosthesis.”

If you have been avoiding prosthesis for the fear of the elaborate procedures involved – biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache, your dentist now has a camera that can capture your full dentition in seconds and transfer this to the computer.
DR. Vijay Tamhane leading Cosmetic and Implant dentist says, “It is vital for the general population to understand the importance of having healthy tooth and gums. Patientsignore dental problems till the time they can withstand pain. They visit us at the last moment. Alas, the natural tooth cannot be saved. But thankfully the material used to build crown in CEREC is biocompatible and mimics the physical and aesthetic qualities of natural teeth.A patient must understand that getting a CEREC crown done is an investment and they will reap the benefits for years to come.”
Experience has led to success-

The CEREC procedure was developed in Zurich University and has been successfully deployed in dental practices since 1985 that means it has been in use for more than 30 years. Globally, more than 25,000 practices in over 50 countries work with CEREC system and since 1985; over 8 million patients have been treated using the CEREC procedure. More than 90% chairside restorations have been delivered by CEREC from Dentsply Sirona.

With a proven track record that has been spreading smiles around the world, this could just be the answer to that tooth procedure you have been avoiding so far.
