CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology is a revolutionary advancement in dentistry that allows for the creation of dental restorations, inlays, onlays and veneers in a single visit to the dentist.

What Are Its Advantages?

-Single visit convenience: One of the most significant advantages of CEREC is the ability to complete dental restorations in a single visit.  Traditional methods often require multiple visits with temporaries placed between appointments. CEREC eliminates the need for temporaries and reduces the overall treatment time, eliminating a second appointment to place the restoration.

-Time efficiency: CEREC restorations are designed, milled and placed in the same appointment, saving you time.  This is particularly beneficial for people with busy schedules who may find it challenging to make multiple visits for dental work.

-Digital impressions: CEREC utilizes digital impressions eliminating the need for traditional messy impression materials.  This digital scanning technology provides highly accurate and detailed images of the teeth and mouth.

-High-quality materials: CEREC restorations are made from high-quality ceramic materials. These materials are durable, biocompatible, and closely mimic the natural appearance of teeth, providing long-lasting and visually pleasing results.

-Reduced discomfort: Since CEREC eliminates the need for traditional impressions and temporaries, patients may experience reduced discomfort associated with these aspects of conventional restorative procedures.

-Digital workflow: CEREC technology incorporates a digital workflow, allowing for efficient communication between the dentist and dental laboratory when one is needed.  This approach streamlines the design and manufacturing process, contributing to the overall efficiency for the restoration process.

-Versatility: CEREC is versatile and can be used for a range of restorative procedures including crowns, inlays, onlays, veneer and even digital dentures.

-Patient satisfaction: The convenience, speed, and high-quality results associated with CEREC contribute to increased patient satisfaction.  Patients appreciate the ability to have the treatment completed in a single, efficient appointment.

While CEREC offers numerous benefits it is essential to note that its availability may vary among dental practices.  Patients interested in CEREC should inquire with their dentist about the technology’s availability and suitability for their specific needs.
