Livermore, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Gone are the days when a patient had to keep returning to a dental clinic before restorations could be completed. Today, Dr. Endre Selmeczy, providing Tri-Valley one-day dentistry, implant dentistry and mercury-free dentistry services, is offering one-visit dentistry that allows patients to receive high-quality restorations on the same day using state-of-the-art 3-D dental imaging equipment.
Dr. Selmeczy utilizes 3-D photography and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology in his dentistry practice to produce a variety of restoration pieces, such as crowns, veneers, fixed bridges, inlays and onlays, and dental implant restorations. With the use of CEREC or ceramic reconstruction equipment–a product by Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of dental technology–Dr. Selmeczy is able to create these high-quality dental restorations while the patient waits.
After a cavity is prepared and photographed, it is then uploaded to a CEREC computer to produce a 3-D model of the restoration. Using 3-D CAD software, Dr. Selmeczy refines the model, the data from which is then sent to a milling unit that shapes the restoration from a solid ceramic or composite block of material.
With the use of this state-of-the-art 3-D imaging, Dr. Selmeczy is able to design restorations to the appropriate form and function, with no guess-work on the fit and bite.
