CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction. It is a state of the art milling unit that produces high quality ceramic or porcelain crowns, partial crowns and bridges. Cerec restorations are fantastic for those who don’t like attending the dentist. The huge advantage of Cerec is that all this is achieved with only one trip to the dentist. In most other practices, dentists will take an impression of the tooth and send it to a dental laboratory, requiring a second visit up to 3 weeks later whilst the patients are fitted with an unpredictable temporary restoration. With Cerec we don’t even need to take an impression (another advantage for those with a prominent gag reflex)- we simply scan the tooth and begin to design and fabricate the restoration. The wonders of modern technology!
