CEREC is short for ‘Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic’.
Designed, milled and fitted in a single appointment
CEREC is a revolutionary technology that enables us to create bespoke restorations (Crowns and Bridges) without the need for impressions.
CEREC is completed from start to finish in a single visit and usually takes just a couple of hours.
Although taking impressions does not hurt, it can be uncomfortable. Instead CEREC uses a camera to create a 3D digital model of your teeth.
As the Crown or Bridge is made during your appointment, you don’t need to wear a temporary which can break or fall out.
Frequently asked questions
First we prepare the tooth for the restoration; Then we scan your upper and lower teeth and your bite. This information tells the CEREC software how to create your new tooth and the dentist fine tunes the design. After milling the crown is tweaked to match your other teeth and cemented into place.
