What is CEREC?
CEREC makes it possible for Dr. Haag to quickly repair broken or cracked teeth using a durable ceramic porcelain material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth. Since 2004, Dr. Haag has been using his CEREC machine to create custom crowns and onlays for his patients in our dental office, in just one visit! CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
What advantages does CEREC offer me?
First and foremost, we can fix your tooth in one appointment, usually in less than two hours. With CEREC, there’s no need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab and we no longer have to inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit. You leave with your new crown the same day!
Second, the restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-colored, BPA-free ceramic material. It’s metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise, minimally invasive and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
