What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or Ceramic Reconstruction. Developed by dentists in Zurich in 1980, CEREC technology produces restorations such as dental crowns and bridges that are extraordinarily life-like and durable. Plus, CEREC patients receive the best in materials and diagnostics conveniently and quickly.
How the CEREC Works
Our Doctors first perform a complete oral exam to determine if a damaged or decayed tooth needs a crown. Using digital x-rays and CAD-CAM software (Computer-aided Design/Computer-aided Manufacturing) light scanning technology to image the tooth, they make a digital impression.
This quick digital process eliminates gooey impressions and long wait times for lab work to be completed.
The digital impression gives the CEREC milling machine all the information needed to manufacture a beautiful all-porcelain dental crown. Once the crown is completed (within 15 minutes) the doctors add their unique artistic shading and polishing to finish the CEREC crown. The doctor then securely bonds (cements) the CEREC crown.
