CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.

The procedure for placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple. The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth. The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture scan. Once the scanned image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you. Once the design is completed, the CEREC will mill the restoration. This step takes approximately 15 minutes, and upon completion your porcelain restoration will then bake for another 20 mintues. You can actually watch this process if you would like. When the restoration is finished, the doctor will try-in your restoration to assure proper fit and then place the permanent cementation. This capability allows your treatment to be completed all in one visit, saving you the hassle of wearing a temporary and returning for another office visit to complete your restoration.
