No Temporary.
No Messy Impressions.
One Easy Appointment.

CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes.CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.

Procedure

The procedure for placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple.  The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth.  The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture. 

Introducing: CEREC

We are excited to introduce to you a process for restoring teeth requiring no messy, uncomfortable impressions and can be completed in just one appointment. Have you been dealing with a cracked or chipped tooth and need and advanced option designed to skip any temporary fix? Often time’s dental restorations require several visits but the CEREC restoration creates full compressed porcelain veneers, onlays and even crowns in mere minutes.

The CEREC process begins with a removal of any tooth decay, following up with the preparation shaping for the tooth being restored. Once the tooth had been properly shaped a digital image will be taken.

In order to get that precise digital image the tooth has a fine powder applied to the surface. This ensures an optimal image and allows the full structure of the tooth to appear as a 3D image on a monitor for you to see. Amazingly, while you watch the dentist will use digital imaging to design the restoration. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the digital image then the CEREC goes to work creating what was just designed digitally. You can choose to observe the manufacturing process, which most often is completely with exactness in 15 minutes. Once the product has been created it can be immediately placed and your restoration is complete within about an hour of your arrival at the office.
