CEREC® by Sirona Dental Systems is a system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. At Waterfront Family Dentistry, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer! CEREC® has two decades of clinical research and practical experience to support the success of this technology. For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
What does getting a CEREC® crown involve?
While the tooth is numb, we will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the tooth surface. Next, a 3D image is acquired with a small camera, directly in your mouth. We then design the restoration on the computer and diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block to reproduce the design. Finally, the new porcelain restoration is polished and bonded in place. Because these Cerec restorations are made of a special ceramic material, they blend very well with your teeth and create a beautiful and extremely strong result. This whole procedure accomplished during a single visit, in about an hour using this amazing CAD/CAM technology.
