Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC®) has revolutionized dental procedures. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, or inlays 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 just a single visit.
· No temporary restorations.
· High-quality ceramic products.
· Minimal invasiveness.
· Less injections and discomfort.
· Fewer dental visits.
· Cost effectiveness.
· More natural tooth is saved.
· Long lasting natural looking restorations.
Here's how it works. When the tooth is prepared for a full crown or onlay, we used to have to take an impression, make a temporary, send the impression to a lab and reschedule the patient back for cementation in two weeks. Now with CEREC3, after the preparation is made we take a three dimensional optical impression of the tooth, design the crown/onlay on the computer screen and then mill the restoration out of a piece of porcelain while you wait in the office. The restoration is then tried in and cemented before you leave that day.
