CEREC is a revolutionary system that enables us to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks, if not more!
Cerec uses the most advanced dental technology, including 3D imaging and CAD/CAM technology to create the crown. In layman’s terms, it is a computer-designed restoration for your tooth. The whole procedure takes between 1-3 hours and can be completed in one sitting.
Typically, a crown requires 2 appointments. The first appointment includes preparing the tooth, taking the mold, and fitting a temporary crown. During second appointment, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent one.
With a Cerec crown, the whole procedure can be completed in just one appointment. We use 3D imaging technology to photograph the tooth and CAD/CAM technology to design the crown. The 3D design is wirelessly transmitted to a milling machine that will carve the restoration out of ceramic block.
