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!
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.

Professional compassionate care
“What a pleasure to get a crown in one visit so painlessly. Dr. Durden pays close attention to details and the quality of care is very up to date. He combines years of experience with the latest of equipment. The computer modeling of the teeth and computer-controlled sculpting of the crown makes it a much better (and faster) experience for the patient.”— Scott H.
