Cerec, an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, is essentially a CAD/CAM machine that produces crowns (caps), veneers, inlays and onlays right in our office in Maple, Ontario.
Restoring the beauty of your smile is easier than you think! With the exciting technology in the CEREC system, we can create ceramic dental restorations in just one visit.
The CEREC system uses 3D imaging technology to create a virtual impression of your tooth. From this image, we can create a ceramic crown, onlay or veneer to match the shade and shape of your tooth. Unlike older technologies, which could take several days, the CEREC system fabricates the restoration in under 30 minutes. During a single visit, we can mill the restoration and bond it to your tooth. The entire process is less invasive and conserves more of your tooth’s natural structure.
CEREC is that it allows our staff to perform a variety of dental restoration procedures in a single visit including:
- Cracks and chips
