What is CEREC?
CEREC is state-of-the-art German technology developed some 30 years ago. Meaning Chairside Economical Restauration of Esthetic Ceramic, this technology has revolutionized how dental restorations are performed.
Internationally-recognized, CEREC uses computer-assisted technology to create and install ceramic restorations in just one appointment.
This innovative technique eliminates the need for temporary restorations.
Advantages of ceramic
Industrial-grade ceramic is free of impurities for reliable results every time.
Ceramic is also highly biocompatible and can restore a damaged tooth’s strength.
Ceramic restorations wear out at the same rate as natural teeth, preventing imbalances when teeth come in contact with one another, as well as the wearing down or fracturing of adjacent teeth.
A CEREC restoration is dimensionally stable, preventing tooth sensitivity due to heat or cold.
Ceramic is very similar in texture and durability to natural enamel. It is also available in a wide range of hues to match your natural teeth perfectly.
