Our CEREC system let’s us create lasting crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays right in our office so they can be placed in the same day, instead of waiting several weeks for a dental laboratory to fabricate them and bring the patient back for a second appointment.
The name CEREC originally stood for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics for the way it allows ceramic replacement teeth to be crafted right next to the dentists chair, but it is now said to be short for CEramic REConstruction.
The CEREC system not only contains components to manufacture the ceramic replacements on the spot, but also incorporates a 3-D camera and computer suite to make sure the pieces it crafts are the precise dimensions needed.
Because of the one-visit fast turnaround time of CEREC, we can eliminate the need for temporary crowns, bridges and other replacement pieces. That speeds up recovery and improves our patients quality of life.
