CEREC Primescan


The new CEREC scanner

We are proud to provide Sirona Dentsply CEREC 3-D Primescan Technology to our patients in need of ceramic restorations. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to complete a restoration, with the Primescan scanner, the latest in this technology,  we can design, fabricate and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit! Including multiple unit bridges. So the need for temporaries or impressions has been eliminated in most cases.  This dynamic-depth scanner allows the doctor to capture full jaw scans in less than a minute with unprecedented image quality. For every 3D image, the Primescan scanner consolidates more than 50,000 images per second, offering an unprecedented level of scanning precision. 

How does CEREC work?

  1. First, the decay and/or old filling is removed.
  2. Then, the teeth are prepared with a thin coat of reflective powder, and a specialized digital 3-D camera creates a precise digital image of the teeth. This state-of-the-art system replaces the need for messy, cumbersome traditional impressions.
  3. The computer-aided design (CAD) software then enables us to design, mill a restoration specific to your dental needs on site. These highly durable restorations can also be color-matched for a more natural looking smile.
  4. We will then attach the restoration to the tooth, and check it for position, placement and bite function. When you leave, you already have your permanent restoration – there is no need for temporaries or follow-up appointments!

What are the advantages of this system?

CEREC Primescan holds several advantages over conventional restoration systems, including:

  • Single unit crowns are started and completed on the same appointment – no wait times, no temporary crowns, no return visits, no hassle!
  • Less need for local anesthetic and fewer injections.
  • All CEREC restorations are made from natural-looking, tooth-colored porcelain material that is metal-free, very bio-compatible and plaque-resistant.
  • CEREC Primescan also allows the immediate direct delivery of a patients case  to the laboratory for large complex cases which can cut down on the time between appointments for preparation and insertion.
