stands for CEramic REConstruction. CEREC is the only method that offers single-visit chair side restoration. It uses the most advanced dental technology, including 3D imaging and CAD/CAM technology to create the crown. In layman's terms, it is a computer-designed restoration for your tooth. These all-ceramic crowns are fabricated and placed in one easy dental appointment! CEREC is fast, safe, and provides a natural-looking restoration that will stand the test of time. CEREC crowns are strong, durable, and can even be color-matched to surrounding teeth, so they are less noticeable. The whole procedure takes between 2-3 hours and can be completed in one sitting!
Why choose CEREC?
A significant benefit of CEREC is that it's healthier than other restorative options. In the past, almost all restorations were done with gold, amalgam, or other metals. CEREC uses all-ceramic material that are durable and biocompatible with your teeth. In other words, it is safe and is resistant to wear.
