CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world's only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, metal-free crown, onlay or veneer. This means fewer injections, no temporary crowns, no more messy impression materials and impression trays, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. So, why are thousands of people world wide choosing the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs?
Single Appointment Dental Care
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, and get an injection, have the temporary removed, and have a permanent restoration put on. With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
With CEREC, an infrared camera is used to take a computerized image of your teeth. This means no more impression tray and runny impression putty have to be used to to make a mold of your teeth. Digital images can also create a more reliable and direct computerized image of your tooth than a traditional impression can. This leads to a more precise fitting restoration.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and early types of fragile porcelains. With CEREC, we are able to use modern fracture resistant porcelain materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. In addition, the materials are bonded to your tooth, so as much healthy tooth tissue can be conserved as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
CEREC can be used for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers.
Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of over 25 years, this equipment has constantly been enhanced over many years and has helped dentists place over 6 million restorations. Using metal free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC gives you the highest quality restorative care.
