CEREC is a revolutionary new way of providing our patients with a permanent restoration made from ceramic in 1 easy appointment.
CEREC is an acronym of Ceramic Reconstruction; meaning, the replacement of a missing tooth substance with a ceramic material. CEREC is a revolutionary process that allows better materials to be used to restore your teeth. CEREC restorations have been shown to outlast any other filling material.
Advancements in Modern Dentistry
It was not so long ago that dentists did not have the choice of materials other than amalgam or gold. White fillings (resin composites) have only been widely available for 30 years. The longevity of white materials (resins) has traditionally been poor – lasting half as long as amalgam or gold.
Your tooth will be prepared, and then scanned with an electronic camera that allows us to see the image on a video screen. Your final restoration is designed from this scan and is automatically milled out from a solid ceramic block. This provides us with a perfect quality long lasting restoration. CEREC restorations are unquestionably the most cost-effective restoration we have available today.
