Cerec 3D CAD CAM
Our CEREC porcelain restorations (crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays) can generally be designed, milled and fitted in just a single appointment. Imagine — a brand new smile in one day. Cerec means no more moulds or weird tasting putty being placed in your mouth. Cerec means no more having to wait at least a week for your restorations and in the case of dental veneers and crowns not having to have a weak temporary cap or veneer that impedes your functionality (and is prone to falling off) while you wait for your restoration to be built in a lab.
CEREC is a high-tech dental device (from Germany) that we have in our office that allows our patients to go from diagnosis to walking out of our office with their new crown, veneer, inlay or onlay in place, all in the same day. (Actually, it only takes a couple of hours from start to finish!)
CEREC uses CAD/CAM or “Computer Aided Design” and “Computer Aided Milling” technology to create your CEREC restoration in just one visit. Cerec cutting-edge digital mapping technology charts the inside of your mouth and takes a computer laser image of your tooth, so it’s very detailed and extremely accurate. Your new CEREC tooth is milled out of a solid ceramic block in our office and bonded to your tooth, on the same day.

The CEREC machine makes getting cosmetic and restorative dentistry less of a hassle on your busy lifestyle and provides you with a strong and durable porcelain restoration that is aesthetically pleasing.
As an option, we also offer award winning Emax technology with Cerec- with same day results. IPS E-max is a layering ceramic that gives beautiful natural opalescence to dental crowns, veneers inlays and onlays. It provides lifelike highly aesthetic results with true to nature light scattering and a balanced relationship between light and chroma. Wear and gloss characteristics are similar to the more traditional feldspathic porcelains, however the strength of E-max enables us to give you a 5 year guarantee.
