What is CEREC?
CEREC crowns, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a cutting-edge dental technology that allows dentists to create and place custom-designed ceramic crowns in just one visit. This revolutionary system uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create a 3D image of the damaged tooth, which is then used to mill a perfectly-fitted ceramic crown right in the dentist’s office. CEREC crowns are strong, durable, and designed to match the natural color and shape of your teeth, making them an ideal choice for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. With CEREC, patients can enjoy a fast, comfortable, and convenient dental restoration experience that delivers outstanding results.
