What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Translated, it means that a dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using various high-quality dental ceramics that match the natural shape and color of the other teeth.

How does the instrument work?
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument.  We use a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where CAD technology is used to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, the new restoration is bonded to the surface of the old tooth.

What does this innovation mean for a patient?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The restoration is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.  By utilizing this techonolgy we no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated. The CEREC has over a decade of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.
