Cerec Information

What is it?

240431_18.jpg

CEREC is a new technology in dentistry which allows dentists to make porcelain crowns, onlays and even veneers in

a single appointment. This means you as the patient can avoid having to wear uncomfortable temporaries, and also can avoid being numb for a second time.

How Does it Work?

The process starts with the doctor preparing the tooth for either the crown, onlay or veneer. Next instead of a messy impression, the doctor uses an infrared camera to take a digital scan of the tooth. This scan is translated into a 3D model of the tooth using the CEREC software. The doctor then designs, in the computer, the final restoration. The computer sends a wireless signal to a milling machine, which mills a precisely fitting porcelain restoration in about 10 minutes.

Lastly, using advanced adhesives, the doctor bonds the restoration to the tooth, which restores the damaged tooth back to its original form and function.
