CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction. It is a state of the art milling unit that produces high quality ceramic or porcelain crowns and bridges, all within one trip to the dentist.
CEREC technology allows your dentist to have complete control over the tooth, meaning that they can alter the shade, shape, contour and fit of the CEREC tooth, to perfectly suit the rest of your existing teeth.
It uses 3D imaging to create a precise restoration that acts as your natural tooth and provides the same functionality as a one too. The software enables the technician to look at your bite and the shape of the other teeth surrounding the CEREC tooth and determine what kind of alterations need to be taking into consideration for a perfect fit. It is truly remarkable technology!
