What is CEREC®?
CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or Ceramic Reconstruction. Rather than using messy goop to take impressions and sending them to a dental laboratory to be created, CEREC® uses computer aided design and manufacturing technology (CAD/CAM) to design, fabricate and place restorations chairside in a single visit.
If you have a tooth that’s broken or missing altogether, or you’re just unsatisfied with the way that your teeth look, we can create many different types of CEREC® restorations to fit your needs and restore your smile back to its healthy functioning condition – in just one day!
The benefits of CEREC® same day dentistry include:
- No more messy goop with digital impressions
- No more temporaries
- Fewer injections
- No return visits
- Restore health, function & aesthetics
- Convenient chairside restorations in a single visit!
Traditionally, having a dental restoration created and placed was no small feat and required multiple appointments. Your first visit would include messy, goopy impressions, which would then be sent to an off-site dental lab to have your restoration created. Then we would give you a numbing injection to prepare the tooth. Once prepared, we would place a temporary restoration for you to wear for a few weeks until your next appointment. You would return a few weeks later, have another numbing injection, have the temporary removed, and then have the final restoration placed. Are we having fun yet?
With CEREC®, the process is quick and painless. We use advanced digital imaging and manufacturing technology to complete the whole process while you wait. CEREC® uses digital impressions that are much more pleasant experience than traditional impressions. Digital impressions are converted into 3D digital models, and your restoration is created right then and there. We will prepare your tooth and place the final restoration, all in the same day!
