CEREC Allows Us to Repair a Damaged Tooth in About an Hour
We no longer need to take putty-based impressions or create temporaries, and CEREC enables us to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings.
To make the restoration, we use a digital scanner to take an impression of the tooth. The picture is then displayed on a computer screen, enabling us to design the restoration. Then CEREC takes over and automatically creates the crown, inlay, or onlay. Finally, we bond the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth.
All this makes going to the dentist much easier and faster, and who really wants to spend more time in the dental chair?
