CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology uses CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) to make you a flawless crown or only in as little as one visit! How does CEREC technology work? During your visit we will take use the machine to take a photograph of your tooth. The photo scans directly on to your computer where your dentist utilizes software to make a custom crown. After we double the fit and bite of the crown, the crown is sent to our onsite lab where it is custom glazed and shaded to match your teeth! Since CEREC crowns and onlays use a camera to photograph your tooth to make the crown, you can say goodbye to messy and uncomfortable impressions.
