What is CEREC?

CEREC is an acronym for both Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and CERamic REConstruction. Either way, it refers to a dental technology that allows dentists to create same-day tooth restorations (Crowns and Onlays) that are highly durable and of top quality. CEREC can be used for almost any type of individual tooth restoration, from replacing old, large fillings to crafting a customized crown. It can also be used for some multiple tooth restorations.

Your CEREC appointment begins with a painless, goop-free optical impressions that is sent to a computer. Using 3-D computer aided design (CAD) technology, the dentist will design your custom restoration and send it to an in-office milling machine. In approximately 10-20 minutes, your all-ceramic restoration, carefully matched to your natural tooth color, will be ready for placement. You do not need to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown or return to the office for a separate placement appointment.
