Cerec is a computer-aided design system that enables the fabrication of high-quality aesthetic ceramic restorations such as inlays, onlays, porcelain veneers, and all ceramic crowns chair side in a single visit. It eliminates the need for impressions, temporary crowns, lab time, and can produce a restoration while the patient waits. It also eliminates the discomfort with temporaries. With this automation, consistency in quality is provided.
After decay and old filling material is removed, the individually manufactured ceramic will be fitted exactly. Depending on severity, the whole procedure will last between one and two hours.
For more heavily compromised teeth, a traditional treatment has been a crown restoration, which can take several separate appointments. Using the CEREC method, crown restoration is completed in a single appointment. No impressions, no temporary crowns - no need for a second injection.
