What Is CEREC®?
Also known as the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics
, CEREC® represents dental innovation at its finest. With this highly advanced restoration system, crowns, veneers, onlays, and inlays are designed and milled in-office, reducing the number of visits.
The process of receiving a CEREC® restoration is fairly simple. After determining the best restorative treatment, Dr. Rosenthal uses an intraoral camera to take digital impressions of the dentition. These images are then compiled to create a three-dimensional model of your teeth. This model is then used to design a porcelain restoration that precisely fits your tooth, ensuring long-term comfort and resilience.
Once the restoration has been designed, the dimension are then sent to the in-office milling machine. Using high-quality porcelain, your crown, veneer, inlay or onlay is created to match your exact dimension. As the restoration is being made, the tooth is prepared. Once completed, the restoration is placed on the tooth and patients are free to return to their daily routines.
