CEREC Near You

CEREC is a technology used to restore damaged teeth.

This restorative method can be completed in a single visit to your dentist. Your dentist will apply a thin layer of reflective powder on your tooth and then take a photo of your tooth using a special 3D imaging camera. Using the CEREC’s software, your restoration will be designed to cater to your tooth shape and function. A piece of ceramic will be created by CEREC technology which will be bonded to your tooth by an adhesive. 

What does a CEREC Restoration Procedure Involve?

Before the restoration process, your tooth must be prepared to ensure a successful treatment. Your dentist will take pictures of the affected tooth using the CEREC imaging solution. These images are transposed onto a computer screen and your dentist will view the tooth from every angle to design the perfect restoration. Once the design is complete, it will be transmitted to the milling unit. 

A block of ceramic that matches your tooth color will be inserted into the milling machine which will then create full crown, onlay or inlay. Your dentist will perform a dry fix before affixing the restoration to the tooth. Once a perfect fit is established, the restoration will be polished and put onto the tooth with a dental adhesive.

Why Choose CEREC?

Here are some advantages of choosing CEREC over traditional crown technology: 

  • Time: CEREC crowns are made in just one visit
  • Comfort: A temporary crown is not needed 
  • Aesthetics: CEREC restores your tooth natural look
  • Strength: Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of dental crowns 
  • Fillings: CEREC material and technology is also used for dental fillings. Since they are made out of porcelain, they are stronger than white composite fillings.
