CEREC, an abbreviation of Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an all-in-one system used to create high-quality, permanent ceramic crowns and bridges. You don’t have to wear temporary restorations while your final ones are being created—a process that can take weeks at practices that don’t have CEREC and must rely on outside labs to create your permanent restorations. You come in for treatment and leave the same day with your permanent crowns or bridges in place, custom-fitted to you for maximum comfort, esthetics, and function. How do we do this? We make an impression of your teeth digitally—no messy putty to bite into—using an intraoral camera. That information is then turned into a virtual blueprint for your crowns or bridges using the system’s design program. The on-board milling machine turns that blueprint into restorations while you watch. We then place your customized final restorations, the benefits of which—restored confidence, smooth speech, greater food choices, and many more—you can begin to enjoy almost immediately!
Unsightly bonding and poor fitting crowns gave Nick a very compromised appearance. All porcelain crowns were chosen to recreate his youthful appearance once again.
Sharon’s crowns, fillings and bondings had become worn and discolored after many years and were in need of replacement. All ceramic crowns created a younger more vibrant appearance which returned a big smile to her face.
