What is CEREC?
CEREC is short for CEramic REConstruction. It is an advanced dental system designed to provide high-quality porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays or onlays in minutes. We create these restorations right in our in-office lab, which means no waiting for your restoration to return from an external lab.
The CEREC process begins by taking a precise optical impression of a patient’s tooth using the CEREC Omnicam.Using 3D computer imaging the restoration is custom-designed for the patient’s mouth. CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology (computer aided design and manufacturing)to create a perfect fit.
Once the crown is designed it is milled out of a block of high-quality porcelain. Minutes later the crown is ready to be bonded into place. No temporaries. No follow-up visits required.
Crowns can take up to three visits and the use of a temporary to fully restore your tooth, With CEREC technology this can be done in a single visit while you are in the chair! CEREC’s precision 3-D technology allows us to create a customized crown that fits your teeth perfectly and is completely biocompatible with your own teeth.
Help save your teeth by not using temporary crowns
With the CEREC system you eliminate the need for a temporary crown. Many teeth become sensitive from wearing a temporary crown and some of those teeth require root canals to alleviate that sensitivity. CEREC restorations protect your teeth from decay.
CEREC Inlays & Onlays – Durable substitute for fillings
Inlays and onlays are a type of filling that are used as a restoration of a broken-down tooth or may replace an existing large filling.
In the past, tooth-colored filling material was not durable enough to withstand the tremendous biting forces required by back teeth, which limited cosmetic dentistry to front teeth restorations. The CEREC system allows us to create beautiful tooth-colored inlays and onlays both for front and back teeth that match the color and appearance of the rest of your teeth. It creates the same translucence, color and brilliance of your natural healthy teeth.
Best of all, CEREC inlays and onlays can be completed in about an hour from start to finish.
We recommend CEREC restorations due to their durability; typically, it is our experience, that CEREC restorations even after several years, are in the same condition as when first placed.
Uses material closest to natural teeth
CEREC restorations are milled from a single block of high quality ceramic, a substance that is particularly compatible with the body and that has the same characteristics as normal, healthy dental enamel. CEREC ceramic expands in the same way as teeth, and also because it comes from a single block, a CEREC restoration is less prone to cracks and flaws than other restorations.
