What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CERamic REConstruction. Translated, it means that a dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth. Using digital scanning instead of impressions, we get a much more accurate design of your teeth. We also use sophisticated software that allows us to custom design crowns, bridges, onlays and veneers in the office with the patient in the chair. We can then “mill” the restoration from very strong ceramics and have it ready to put in your mouth in a little over an hour!
