Cerec Prime Scan - Bay Dental Family Dentistry and Orthodontics

In the field of dentistry, technology has become a huge player in providing comprehensive dental care in the area of California. We are excited to offer some of the latest modalities to ensure better diagnostics and treatment of common dental concerns. In addition to offering digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, our team also provides digital impressions and same-day restorations using the CEREC Primescan intraoral dental scanner.

What is Cerec Primescan?

CEREC Primescan is the ability to use digital dentistry to create dental impressions and restorations that fit with precision over a prepared tooth and do so while patients wait. Same-day dentistry is not available at all practices in the community. With the CEREC Primescan dental scanner, the dentist can take digital impressions of the teeth and use them to create same-day restorations including:

  • Dental bridges
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental crowns

This technology uses a specialized camera that scans the patient’s mouth while they sit comfortably in the dental chair. Then, the scanned images are sent either sent to a lab; or to our CAD/CAM computer software  Once in the software we can design and with our CEREC machine we can mill dental restorations out of blocks of porcelain right in the dental office. In doing this, we can provide restorations that used to take weeks to complete from start to finish for our patients in one visit. Other dental practices that do not use CEREC technology require patients to have multiple appointments and deal with temporary restorations in the meantime.

How it works.

Four simple steps to your new tooth:

Step 1. Imaging
We capture an image of your tooth with a digital scanner.

Step 2. 3D Modeling
A 3D model of your teeth and your new restoration is created on the computer.

Step 3. Fabrication
The restoration is then fabricated from a ceramic block on our milling machine, right in our office.

Step 4. Placement
The dentist places the custom-fit restoration a short time later, during the same visit.

Why Cerec?

CEREC restorations are just as strong, durable, and beautiful as those made in a dental laboratory but take a fraction of the time to complete. This makes it easier than ever for patients to get dental work completed as needed.
