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 at your dentist's side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, filling (inlay/ onlay), or veneer! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, no impressions, no temporary restorations, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
The CEREC Procedure
The CEREC procedure is quite simple. Once the defective filling or decay has been removed, an optical 3D image is acquired with a camera, directly in your mouth. The restoration is created on the screen using the image data. Diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block to reproduce the design. This is accomplished using Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM). The new restoration fits precisely and is cemented using a strong bonding material which unites the porcelain and the tooth, ensuring an extremely long life for your tooth.
CEREC combines perfect looks, perfect comfort and perfect quality to provide unquestionably the most cost effective restoration we have available today. For more information please visit www.cereconline.com.
