CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
We use CEREC technology to provide our patients with same-day dental restorations.
This means that instead of having to wait weeks for your dental restoration to be made in an off-site lab, we are able to design and fabricate dental crowns right in our office.
How CEREC Works
The beginning part of the dental crown procedure remains the same. Our dentist will remove enough enamel so your tooth won’t seem large and bulky when we place the dental crown on top. However, your dentist will use the CEREC scanner to make a 3D digital impression of your teeth. Using special CAD/CAM software, your dentist is then able to design your new dental crown right in front of your eyes.
Complete the dental crown procedure in one visit to our office!
In our office, we have a milling machine that creates dental crowns out of ceramic. Our dentist will make sure that the size, fit, and color of your dental crown is perfect before bonding it to your tooth. CEREC makes it possible for patients to complete the dental crown procedure in one visit to our office.
Benefits of CEREC
One of the main benefits of CEREC technology is that you don’t have to deal with the hassle of waiting for your crown to be made in an off-site lab. Instead, we design and fabricate the ceramic dental crown right in our office. This also means that we don’t have to place a temporary crown on your tooth while you wait for your permanent dental restoration, which saves you time and money.
