What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
CEREC means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth.
What Advantages Does CEREC Offer Me?
The restoration can be performed in a single session, usually in about one hour
No need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab, so we wont inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit
The restoration is made of
Metal-free, meaning no silver fillings to discolour your smile
The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant
Allows extreme precision so we can save more of the healthy part of your tooth
How Does CEREC Work?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth by applying a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth’s surface. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression of the tooth
Computer Aided Design technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full-color computer monitor right before your eyes
Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration. A high-speed diamond bur and a disk work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material
Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using high-grade dental adhesive
Over a decade of clinical research and experience supports the CEREC technology.
User input and research have helped the manufacturer improve the product during this time.
Dentists have performed over four million restorations worldwide.
