A Step-By-Step Guide

Win a Beautiful Smile with CERECDo you have a chipped, discolored, decayed, or misshapen tooth? If so, get ready to smile again because CEREC is here! CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is an advanced CAD/CAM system. It allows dentists to quickly and accurately create inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers, and crowns for both anterior and posterior teeth. In nearly one appointment, you can have your damaged tooth restored and be smiling brighter than ever before.

The process starts with the dentist removing any bacteria-ridden tissue or existing fillings from the affected area. Then, imaging the tooth using the CEREC camera follows. This creates a 3D image that will be used to design a restoration onscreen – all while you wait! Once finished, a high-tech milling machine uses ceramic blocks to create your personalized restoration which is then bonded directly onto your tooth. This guarantees only the highest accuracy compared to traditional techniques where time was extended by taking impressions offsite. Simple!

Say Goodbye to Impressions, Temporaries, and Long Wait Periods: The Benefits of CEREC

The CEREC 3D measuring camera eliminates the need for unpleasant impressions by scanning the prepared tooth in only seconds. Plus, this procedure restoration is milled out of a solid ceramic block in a matter of minutes meaning they’re ready to be placed immediately – no temporary fillings or crowns needed. This removes the need for any long wait periods and ensures that patients can get their tooth restorations in one appointment with almost immediate results. Not only are CEREC restorations aesthetically pleasing, but they have also proven their durability time after time, which is why their usage continues to expand exponentially across dental practices worldwide.
