    How Does CEREC® Technology Work

    CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a revolutionary system that creates three-dimensional dental restorations using CAD/CAM technology. With the use of this advanced system, our dental professionals can restore your teeth within a single visit.

    Questions About CEREC®?
    • Oral Exam
      The process begins with a thorough evaluation of your oral cavity. Our dentist will examine your damaged tooth/teeth to determine the most appropriate restoration. It could be either a filling or a dental crown, depending on the health of the remaining tooth structure.
    • Tooth Preparation
      We will administer a local anesthetic to numb the treatment site. In this step, our dentist will remove the decayed/damaged portion of the tooth and prepare the surface for the desired restoration. If a crown is needed, we will remove a thin enamel layer of the tooth, as it ensures a comfortable fit.
    • Optical Impression
      After tooth preparation, our dentist will take an optical impression of your teeth. Instead of using goopy impressions, we will use a digital scanner to record high-quality images of your prepared teeth. This step takes one or two minutes.
    • Fabrication
      The CEREC® software uses the digital scans to create a 3D virtual model of the restoration on the computer screen. Using this model, the milling machine designs a customized, tooth-colored restoration within 15 to 20 minutes. Finally, our dentist will test the fitting of the restoration and bond it permanently to your tooth. This way, you have a new restoration without needing multiple appointments!
