Cerec dental crowns are a superior method of creating precisely designed color matched and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our practice. From simple dental fillings to full crowns to veneers, Cerec delivers the results you need in a single appointment.
After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, we will prepare your tooth for restoration, similarly to traditional dental treatment methods. Your prepared tooth will be coated with a safe, tasteless powder. (Coming soon...updated machine that won't even require any powder!!) CEREC then uses a state of the art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression. This digital image replaces the physical impression required in traditional procedures. No more long waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth!
Computer Aided Design (CAD)
State of the art CAD software allows us to design every precise detail of your dental restoration with the accuracy you’ve come to expect from us. The software allows us to customize the shape of the dental restoration to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.
Mill & Place
While you wait in our comfortable, relaxing office, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration. About 15 minutes later, your all ceramic, color matched dental restoration is ready for placement. Your new restoration is then fitted, polished, and once we know that it fits perfectly, it is placed in the oven and fired. Once fired, it is bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function, and beauty.
