What is CEREC?
- CEREC is an acronym for Chair side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
- CEREC means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth.
What advantages does CEREC offer me?
- This crown restoration can be performed in a single visit, usually in about two hours.
- No need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab, so we wont inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit.
- The restoration is made of tooth-colored ceramic material therefore it’s natural looking.
- Metal free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile!
- The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.
- Allows extreme precision so we can save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
How does CEREC work?
- First, we prepare the damaged tooth and apply a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth’s surface. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression of the tooth.
- Computer Aided Design technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full-color computer monitor right before your eyes!
- Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration. A high-speed diamond bur and a disk work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material.
- Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
- Over a decade of clinical research and experience supports the CEREC technology.
