CEREC

CEREC is an acronym for CEramic REConstruction, using CAD/CAM technology. Fancy words for one - visit, all - porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays used to beautifully rebuild teeth.

After shaping the tooth I use a blue light camera to image the tooth and those teeth above or below the tooth. Using a powerful 3D capable computer a restoration is designed and then milled from a clock of porcelain in six to ten minutes. After polishing the porcelain is bonded to the tooth using a composite resin material. The result is a beautiful restoration with strength like a normal tooth.

Crowns may be used to:

  • Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
