CEREC is a dental technology which uses CAD/CAM to design and sculpt porcelain dental restorations. Unlike the old-fashioned method of creating dental crowns, CEREC uses 3D digital images of your tooth instead of wax impressions to make a tooth crown. The images capture more detail than a wax mold can transfer, helping a CEREC-created crown fit even better than one created at a dental lab.
Because CEREC can sculpt a new tooth crown, inlay or onlay from a block of porcelain in just a few minutes, your tooth can be prepared and photographed and your restoration can be placed in a single office visit, saving you time and inconvenience. Although your tooth crown is sculpted by a computer, our dentists have complete control over every aspect of the design of your dental restoration.
