what is cerec

cerec is a technology for restoring damaged teeth.

This restoration can be completely finished in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.

the cerec process

During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will use diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state of the art adhesive dentistry.

The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function, and closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure.

strengths

Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!

fillings
