Dental restorations, such as crowns, fillings, and veneers, have been around for a long time now. They are mainly used to restore teeth that are severely damaged, infected, cracked, discolored, or need support to prevent them from crumbling. However, much to the delight of our patients, restorations have come a long way from taking multiple visits to the dentist’s office and spending several hours of chair time. You can now get them done in a single visit to our office with the help of CEREC!
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration using Esthetic Ceramic. It makes use of CAD/CAM technology to mill out restorations with high precision from small blocks of ceramic. The process is so quick that your customized restoration will be ready in a matter of a few minutes while you get yourself something to eat or surf through a few Youtube videos.
