CEREC is one of the most exciting breakthroughs in modern dentistry. It is a CAD/CAM computer system which allows us to generate superb quality porcelain restorations (crowns, onlays, veneers) in a single visit.
Single appointment restoration
Naturaltooth colored porcelain filling
No messy impressions or plastic temporaries
Closest filling material to natural tooth available
Precise computer generated fit allows preservation of tooth structure
15 years of positive clinical research
How does it work?
CEREC is a camera, computer and precision manufacturing machine all in one. We use CEREC’S built in camera to take a picture of the damaged tooth. Using this image, the CAD (Computer Assisted Design) function of the CEREC designs the porcelain restoration. Then, the CAM (Computer Assisted Manufacturing) function mills the restoration out of a block of porcelain. We then bond the crown/filling to your tooth and are finished!
