CEREC®
One-Visit Dentistry

CEREC® (CEramic REConstruction) technology plays an important role in our practice. This remarkable innovation in chairside dentistry gives us the tools to design, create, and place crowns, inlays and onlays in a single visit.

The CEREC® Difference

The traditional approach to a crown or inlay/onlay often required a return appointment after the patient waited (with a temporary restoration in the tooth) for about two weeks while the restoration was manufactured in a separate lab. Cerec® CAD/CAM technology eliminates the wait!

How does CEREC® work?

Cerec® employs a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the doctor uses CAD (computer-aided design) software to design the restoration. Then CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) takes over and automatically mills the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, the new restoration is bonded in place. The whole process takes about one hour, and there are no annoying temporaries or second visit required!

Proven Technology

With two decades of clinical research and more than 20 million restorations performed worldwide, Cerec® has proven to be a an effective, safe and convenient technology that we are delighted to offer to our patients.

  "I didn't think it was possible, but since I started going here, I actually look forward to my dentist appointments! Everyone here is super friendly and professional. I have had a crown done as well as Invisalign. The crown was done in-house and finished on the same visit. No temporary crowns and then having to go back. The whole Invisalign process was well explained and great care was given during the whole thing." — Nathan C.
