CEREC® offers convenient, faster and more comfortable care to provide a range of high quality same day restorations including ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays.
In just one appointment you can have a naturally beautiful restoration to enhance the beauty and function of your smile. With CEREC there is no need for multiple office visits, messy dental impressions, a temporary crown, or waiting weeks for your dental work to come back from the laboratory. Your new restoration is designed and customized to the exact specifications of your smile all in the very same day!
CEREC is an advanced method of care, which allows for the preparation and placement of same day ceramic restorations. Offering the utmost in terms of quality and convenience, this high-tech system utilizes CAD/CAM technology, or computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing to make every step of the restoration process more patient-friendly and precise. Using an ergonomically designed intraoral scanning wand in place of a conventional dental impression, the dentist is able to capture detailed 3D images of the prepared tooth and surrounding dentition. These images are then integrated by an advanced computer software program to produce an accurate model and plan a precise fitting, functional, and cosmetically pleasing restoration. As soon the restoration is designed and approved by the dentist, the information is sent wirelessly to a chairside milling machine where a ceramic restoration is fabricated as the patient waits.
A CEREC single visit crown offers much more than a convenient approach to getting a dental crown. It is a high quality, naturally beautiful, extremely durable and long-lasting dental restoration!
