CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations Esthetic Ceramic
What is CEREC?
CEREC is an advanced dental restorative system that allows us to restore your teeth with a same-day crown. Crowns are used to repair decayed or fractured teeth, replace defective silver amalgam fillings, or place cosmetic veneers in just one appointment. CEREC technology allows you to have the highest quality ceramic, most natural looking and feeling dental restorations.
The procedure does not require a goopy tray impression or a temporary crown. We use a digital scan to make an image of your mouth and the tooth that needs the crown.
We design a custom crown for you using CAD-CAM software and then fabricate the crown here in the office while you wait. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and a second appointment – saving you time.
We can use CEREC technology to make crowns, implant crowns, veneers, bridges and onlay/inlays. We have a wide variety of materials, such as Emax porcelain and Zirconia, to ensure you receive the best restoration for your needs.
