What is CEREC®?

Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC® for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. CEREC® uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer single-day restorations for patients. This new technology has revolutionized dentistry by saving you time and the need for additional dental visits. The restorations created are metal-free and tooth colored to restore your tooth to its natural beauty, strength and function.
