The CEREC System
Our advanced, in-office CAD CAM dental technology offers you single-visit custom crowns and more.
We are so excited to offer dentistry powered by CEREC because it makes custom crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers easier than ever for you.
In just one visit using this advanced technology, we can prepare your tooth, then make the restoration right in our practice in as little as one hour. No messy impressions, no temporary crowns, and no long wait for your permanent restoration.
How it works:
1. We capture an image of your tooth with a digital scanner (Primescan).
2. A 3D model of your teeth and the new restoration are created on the computer.
3. The restoration is then fabricated from a ceramic block on our milling machine (Primemill), right in our practice.
4. The dentist places the custom-fit restoration a short time later, during the same visit.
Why it’s better for you:
Eliminates the unpleasant impression process
The digital scanner captures a full-mouth image in seconds—no biting down on impression material for several minutes, no numbness, and no jaw ache.
No follow-up appointment necessary
We create and place your permanent dental restoration in one visit, letting you get on with life—eliminating the need for an uncomfortable, inconvenient temporary crown.
A long-term solution.
Unlike many conventional crowns that use a metal base (which limits translucency) and can have a dark edge, a CEREC crown looks and feels like your natural tooth. And it most closely matches the hardness of a real tooth, helping prevent wear and tear.
