The name for this machine is an acronym:
Chair-side, Economical, Restorations of, Esthetic, Ceramic.
Chair-side means that Dr. Williams can provide the treatment (crown, only, inlay or veneer) in one patient visit, while ceramic refers to the final product, a non-metallic restoration which is bonded to the existing or remaining tooth structure. Ceramic restorations are similar in hardness to the natural tooth, and also resemble more closely your natural tooth color than conventional gold and silver restorations. CEREC restorations are extremely durable and natural looking. The beauty of ceramic restorations is seen in the before and after photographs below.
Using this computerized imaging system that utilizes an electronic sensor instead of X-ray film, Dr. Williams can provide diagnostic images that use up to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays. The sensors produce sharp and clear images that appear almost instantly on a computer screen nest to your chair so we can discuss the findings together.
In many cases patients do not see the urgency in performing critical treatment or fully understand the necessity or value of treatment because they simply lack the perspective of the doctor. Dr. Williams help to overcome by applying the time tested saying "A picture is worth a thousand words". By including our intraoral camera in your diagnostic and treatment process the doctors are able to keep you fully informed regarding your treatment so that you fully understand what the needs and results are.
