CEREC is a dental restoration procedure that allows dentists to produce ceramic dental restorations using 3D photography. CEREC allows the dentist to produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay within an hour – a procedure that would normally take up to two weeks.
Instead of the traditional method using dental putty to create an impression, CEREC creates a detailed 3D model of the tooth using a highly sensitive camera. Once this has been created, it is sent to an onsite milling machine which fabricates the tooth from a ceramic block – a process which can take anywhere from 6 to 30 minutes.
Imagine a new, beautiful veneer to disguise a chipped tooth that matches your smile and all in one day! No temporaries, no return visits and fewer injections, what’s not to love about CEREC One Visit Dentistry?!
