CEREC is a short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (also CEramic REConstruction). It is one of the greatest achievements of modern dentistry, allowing a one-visit, comfortable, natural, and effective way of restoring your damaged teeth. The CEREC procedures we use are based on sophisticated equipment that is based on an astoundingly simple principle. Specially designed camera takes the picture of the damaged tooth. The image is instantly transferred to a computer that uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) to design the piece that will replace the missing portion of the tooth.
CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) is used to produce the designed piece, which is then placed into your tooth. The advantages of this approach are multiple: unlike with traditional dental filling, there is no need to make molds, which makes the entire process much faster, more comfortable, and more accurate. In addition to that, the materials used are perfectly natural, giving your teeth the natural look we all strive to achieve. The durability is also significantly improved, which will eliminate the need of repeating the procedure in the near future, which is not always the case with traditional fillings. Finally, all it takes for you to give your teeth that perfect natural look you’ve always wanted is one visit to our office. There are no second visits, no temporaries – just one short visit, and you are ready to return to your life, looking better than ever.
