CEREC® Same Day Restorations
CEREC® is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics and allows a dentist to economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using high quality porcelain material that matches the color, shape, and composition of natural teeth.
Depending on the procedure(s) being performed, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more. Using a special scanner, the office can take a digital impression without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort. The restoration(s) is then designed using advanced computer 3D technology that can analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth. A new crown is milled out of a solid piece of tooth colored material providing excellent durability. Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.
