What is CEREC?

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a type of dental technology that allows for the creation and placement of dental restorations in a single appointment. This innovative technology uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to design and create high-quality dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, and inlays/onlays, in just one visit to the dentist. This means that patients can receive a new, beautiful restoration in just one visit, without the need for multiple appointments or temporary restorations.

What is the process of CEREC?

The CEREC process is a remarkable advancement in dentistry. It begins with a precise digital scan of the affected tooth, eliminating the need for traditional impressions. Using this digital model, a custom restoration is meticulously designed to fit the tooth’s unique specifications. Next, an in-office milling machine crafts the restoration from a high-quality ceramic block with great precision. This efficient process allows for same-day dental work, reducing the need for multiple appointments. It ensures that patients receive durable, natural-looking restorations in a single visit, making it a convenient and effective solution for dental restorations.

Benefits of CEREC

CEREC offers many benefits to patients who are in need of dental restorations. With CEREC, there is no need for multiple appointments or the use of temporary restorations. The restoration is designed and created in-office, allowing for faster, more convenient treatment. CEREC restorations are also highly durable and long-lasting, providing patients with a beautiful, functional smile for many years to come.

Who is a good candidate for CEREC?

CEREC is a great option for anyone who is in need of a dental restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or inlay/onlay. It is particularly beneficial for those who are looking for a fast, convenient treatment option that allows them to receive their new restoration in just one visit to the dentist. CEREC is also a great option for patients who have busy schedules, as it eliminates the need for multiple appointments. If you are considering CEREC, your dentist can help you determine if it is the right choice for you.
