Merano Marcello Gambadoro Il salone verde

In the dental studio of Dr. Sergio Avi, in Merano, we use the latest generation equipment and tools to give our customers reliability and results safety.

The Avi dental studio features a computerized filling system, the CEREC ©, consisting in a 3D software that captures the tooth image to be rebuilt and a dental milling machine which, starting from a ceramic cube, creates the perfect fit for every tooth to be treated. Thanks to this technology, even very complex whole ceramic fillings, by the long lasting aesthetic results, can be made in just one visit.

Furthermore this technology is, in terms of hardness of used material, accuracy, quality and execution speed, really amazing for the reduced time required to the patient:

  • Fillings in one hour
  • Crowns in two or three hours
  • Small bridges in two days

After 20 years of experience in this system we can say with certainty that ceramic is the best material for dental restorations and is anallergic.

In our practice we use a 3D C.A.T. radiology device for the implantology planning, oral surgery and dentistry.

The steps of the CEREC method

the CEREC method - step 1
After the consultation, a camera captures the area to be treated.
the CEREC method - step 2
The dental prosthesis is then created as a 3D model on the computer.
the CEREC method - step 3
The restoration created on the computer is subsequently milled from a ceramic block.
the CEREC method - step 4
The finished ceramic restoration is inserted just a little while later.

The advantages of the CEREC method

No unpleasant impression material

Say goodbye to biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache.
Your dentist now has a camera that can capture your full dentition in seconds and then transfer this to the computer.

No follow-up appointment

CEREC enables your dentist to insert aesthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single session.
The advantage of this is that only one appointment is necessary, which means only one injection, and then you can deal with other things than visits to the dentist.

No bothersome temporary prosthesis

Temporary prostheses are exactly what the name suggests: temporary.
With CEREC the final prosthesis is inserted directly without any temporary compromises needed.

Long-term stability

More than just a theory: With CEREC you can rely on quality that has been proven millions of times over in the practice.
Furthermore, thanks to your new dental prosthesis made by CEREC, your smile will be just as lovely many years later as it is directly after receiving the prosthesis.

Like a real tooth

Due to the translucency of ceramics, the dental prosthesis looks like a real tooth.

In a ceramic dental prosthesis, no dark edges are visible as is so often the case in conventional crowns.

Ceramic is very close to the hardness of the natural tooth, thus preventing wear of the tooth, which unfortunately so often occurs with other materials.

Ceramic is very well tolerated so allergic reactions are largely excluded. This is not the case with other methods and materials.

The CEREC method is a gentle treatment for your teeth. Only the carious tooth surface is removed. The remaining healthy tooth substance is preserved.
