Making the CEREC Choice

added on: November 27, 2013 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is CAD/CAM technology that utilizes a camera, computer, and milling machine to fabricate a precise tooth-colored, single-tooth restoration. This advanced computerized technique enables the dentist to create inlays, onlays, and full crowns in a single office visit without impressions, temporaries, or second office visits. This is accomplished by using a special camera to take a picture of the damaged tooth, the image of which is then displayed on a screen. The dentist next uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology to design a restoration that is then milled from porcelain using CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology. Within one hour, the patient can enjoy a beautifully restored tooth.
