What is Cerec?

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.  It is for this reason that they are stronger than laboratory restorations, which are layered 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.

How does Cerec work?

When you come into the dentist’s office, your dentist will begin by examining the broken or missing tooth. Using software, the dentist will then fully design the details of your restoration. Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you. Because of the digital imaging technology, the replacement will be highly precise and custom fitted to your tooth. The dentist will then send the design to the on-site machine that will create the restoration. After about 20 minutes, your dentist will bond your new restoration in place and your teeth will be returned to their natural form.

Benefits of choosing Cerec one visit Crowns

When you choose to restore your tooth with a CEREC crown, you’ll see that the benefits of this advanced technology are many. Some of the top advantages include:

  • When your dental crown is created and placed in the same visit, you get to skip that second visit to the dentist, and the time spent waiting in between. That means you spend less time away from work and life, and more time enjoying your strong, healthy smile.
  • CEREC crowns require less tooth preparation, meaning more of your natural tooth stays intact.
  • CEREC crowns are also biocompatible.
  • CEREC technology uses digital impressions, eliminating the need for that messy, bad tasting goop your dentist has always used. These digital impressions also greatly increase precision, meaning you’ll never have to deal with an ill-fitting crown.
  • Aside from being convenient and comfortable, studies have shown that CEREC crowns last longer than those created in a traditional dental laboratory setting. Could you ask for more in a dental crown?
I’ve been a patient here for quite a number of years and Karen is fabulous. The practice is so friendly, it takes away all your fears as soon as you come in the door and they have this fantastic machine that makes up your CEREC if you need a crown.
