CEREC™ Single Visit Dentistry
Upland, California doctor offers latest technologies, including the Omni Cam by Sirona
At Dr. Phil Ra's SmileStudio, serving Inland Empire from our office in Upland, California, Dr. Phil J. Ra is an esteemed doctor of dental surgery who is committed to providing clinically advanced treatment and technologies for the best outcomes for our patients. With a dedication to biological dentistry, we invest in modern technologies for safe, biocompatible, and painless dental care.
Dental technologies have evolved over the years, resulting in greater comfort, reduced treatment times, enhanced healing, and speedier recovery periods. Dr. Ra believes in investing in progressive equipment and techniques such as laser dentistry, digital x-rays, 3D digital imaging, and CEREC same day restoration technology to reduce patient anxiety and discomfort while achieving each patient's healthiest smile.
CEREC is an acronym for Ceramic REConstruction or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This system was developed in the 1980s, and it revolutionized the creation of dental restorations such as crowns and bridges by providing the ability to produce same day restorations in the dentist's office using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems. Progressive dentists, like Dr. Ra, can utilize comfortable and precise digital cameras and imaging systems instead of the conventional, messy molds for a physical impression of the patient's mouth. Digital images are sent to a sophisticated software program for customized milling while the patient waits comfortably. This technology has eliminated the need for multiple visits and a lengthy turnaround time.
Now Sirona, a global leader in dental technology, which has been innovating dentistry since developing the first electric dental drill in the 1880s, has created the Omnicam, which delivers optimal, precise, and comfortable 3D images in the most natural color. Without the need for powders, the Omnicam by Sirona allows Dr. Ra to record and share extremely lifelike images of a patient's natural tooth structure to develop the best treatment in collaboration with the patient. The comfortable, handheld device is seamlessly navigated by Dr. Ra and it can quickly create a 3D image.
