Cerec for Crowns, Veneers, Inlays, and Onlays
What is Cerec?
Cerec is an advanced computerized dental system that allows us to digitally model, sculpt, and insert your crown, veneer, inlay or onlay in just one office appointment.
Why Do I Want Cerec?
A typical crown procedure requires at least two office visits. Typically on your first visit your tooth is prepared for the crown, impressions are taken and sent to the lab, and a temporary crown is attached. Then, when your new crown is ready, you have to come back to the office to have it attached.
Cerec technology eliminates the lab by eliminating the temporary crown. The permanent crown is created in our office while you wait. Digital scans are taken of your mouth to create an exact virtual copy in the Cerec computer. The crown is designed and cut by the Cerec system during your first appointment. The permanent crown is attached and you are on your way!
