What is CEREC?
CEREC means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural colour of other teeth in your mouth.

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.


What advantages does CEREC offer?


First and foremost, the restoration can be performed in a single session, usually in about one hour. With CEREC there's no need to make an impression and to send it to a lab. We won't inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit.

Secondly, the restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-coloured ceramic material. It's metal-free; no silver fillings to discolour your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.


How Does CEREC Work?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth by applying a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth's surface. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression of the tooth.

Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration. A high-speed diamond bur and a disk work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material. Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.

Over a decade of clinical research and experience supports the CEREC technology. User input and research have helped the manufacturer improve the product during this time. Dentists have performed over four million restorations worldwide.


CEREC has revolutionized the way our practice can deliver treatment to patients like you. This high-tech equipment allows us to restore damaged teeth in a single visit. The result is a beautiful, natural-coloured restoration that is much stronger than before.
