What Is CEREC?
In our goal to provide our patients with the latest in modern dental technology, we’re proud to provide highly lifelike restorations in a single visit with the advanced CEREC same-day restoration system. CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics, and is a system that utilizes digital CAD/CAM technology to design and create customized dental crowns, inlays, and onlays. By choosing a CEREC restoration, you can enjoy your beautiful, fully restored smile in just one day, rather than waiting several weeks for your restoration to be crafted off site.
How Does CEREC Work?
Our advanced CEREC machine is able to expedite the tooth restoration process by using computer-aided design and manufacturing, or CAD/CAM. After your dentist prepares your tooth to receive your crown, inlay, or onlay, the digital imaging technology will take highly detailed measurements of your tooth. Then, the measurements and images are sent digitally to an on-site milling machine that will automatically craft your restoration in just a couple of hours.
Can I Benefit from a CEREC Restoration?
If you have a damaged tooth, or one that needs cosmetic improvement, then a custom-designed crown, inlay, or onlay may be able to improve your smile and refortify your tooth structure. By receiving your restoration in just one day, you won’t have to wait and risk damaging your tooth further, which could require more extensive restorative treatment. You can also walk out of our office with your new smile intact so you can smile proudly again much sooner.
