Why CEREC Means Fewer Trips to the Dentist

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a computer-aided method of dentistry used to create restorations. The major benefit of CEREC is that it allows dentists to create restorations without having to send anything to a lab. Instead, dentists can create and insert dental restorations in a single visit, instead of over the course of several appointments. That way, patients do not have to waste time scheduling multiple visits for the work they need done. They simply go to their dentist, sit down, and get their problems fixed all in the same trip. If you need any work done, you should go to a dentist with CEREC technology so that you can get everything out of the way in just one appointment.
CEREC technology is used for all sorts of things. It can be used for restorations, implants, and orthodontics. Since it came out in 1985, CEREC has come a long way. It is amazing what the technology can do. Without CEREC technology, you’d have to bite into a mold which takes an impression of your bite. Then that needs to be sent to a lab where it is analyzed. The lab takes a while because they have to make a model of your mouth, and then create the part they need to make.
With CEREC, none of this is necessary. The dentist uses a camera that goes inside the patient’s mouth to take a scan of the mouth. That scan goes up on a computer screen that makes a model of your mouth right in front of your eyes. Special software then helps the dentist use this model to create the restoration needed to fix the patient’s problem. Then, that restoration gets made all from the same machine! Right there, in front of you—all in one sitting.
Not only does CEREC make your trip shorter, it makes it much more comfortable! Because you don’t have to make impressions of your teeth, the process is much more comfortable for patients. A small camera is the only thing that needs to go into your mouth, rather than the mold you need to keep in your mouth until it sets.

Don’t Leave Your House to Go to the Spa

After a long day or week, you just want to unwind. You want to relax in a stress-free environment, which is why a lot of people go to the spa. But who says you have to leave the comfort of your home to have a spa experience? With just a little work up front, you can make your bathroom into your own personal spa. Here are some easy DIY tips to making your bathroom into your own little haven.

Natural Elements

Choose neutral colors for your bathroom paint and décor. Browns, greens, and other earthy tones will create a natural calming effect and give your bathroom an organic vibe. Dark wood and stone can be great design elements to get that natural feel. Consider also adding plants to enhance the ambience. Just by incorporating a few of these ideas into your bathroom, you’ll already feel like you’re at a retreat.

Mood Lighting

The spa experience is all about mood lighting. If you don’t already have dimming bathroom lights, make the plunge and get them—your world will be changed forever. And nothing says mood lighting like candles! Put plenty of candles throughout the bathroom so that they surround you. Now dim the switch, light the candles, and watch the room transform into a sanctuary. (Just make sure you blow out the candles!)

Calming Fragrance

Those candles we talked about above? Make sure to buy scented ones. Use natural, calming scents like lavender and eucalyptus. For those of you worried about forget to blow out the candles, consider an oil diffuser to fill the room with fragrance. Either way, make sure you are using scents that promote relaxation.

Tranquil Sounds

Having a television in your bathroom may help some people relax. That way, you can unravel after a long day by watching your favorite shows in the tub. But for the true spa experience, consider putting in Bluetooth speakers (preferably waterproof—just in case) and playing nature sounds or calming music. Tune into a radio station that plays nature sounds like rainstorms, forest noises, or sounds of the ocean. Fill the room with calming, good vibes.
Introducing even just a few of these elements at a time can be a transformative addition to your bathroom. Add each over time, and before you know it, your bathroom will be your own little haven.
At Pure Dental Spa, we love the feeling of being at the spa, and we want you to love it too! That’s why when you visit us, you receive the spa treatment! But don’t wait to come to the dentist. Implement these changes in your home today!
