CEREC is an acronym that stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a method of creating dental crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single visit to the dentist. In the past, getting a dental crown meant having to schedule two separate appointments – one to prepare the tooth and take impressions, and another to have the permanent crown placed. CEREC offers a more convenient solution that can be completed in just one visit. 

So how does it work? First, the tooth is prepared for the crown. Then, digital images are taken of the tooth using an intraoral camera. These images are used to create a 3D model of the tooth, a milling unit is then utilized to create the ceramic or zirconia crown. We will then paint and glaze each tooth to match the rest of your mouth. Once this is complete, we can bond the tooth into your mouth in a matter of minutes. It’s that quick and easy!

The entire process should only take about two hours.
