CEREC is a revolutionized dental technology. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. CEREC creates these ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in SAME DAY.
CEREC is comprised of several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic restoration to match your existing teeth. CEREC can benefit almost anyone needing a ceramic restoration. This is of great benefit to nervous patients, and it can also reduce the cost of treatment.
