The Cerec technique is the most significant technological advance dentistry has ever experienced! Now we have the ability to treat, in one appointment, dental problems that used to take two appointments. In addition, we are able to be more conservative and less invasive with our approach. This means quicker treatment, less “drilling”, less time in the dental chair, and more comfort!
Taking advantage of CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer assisted manufacturing) technology, the Cerec machine allows for a completely new approach to restorative dentistry.
In the past, the teeth shown at right with the defective mercury-amalgams would have needed crowns, a two- appointment procedure, to be properly restored.
Now a conservative procedure, completed in only one appointment, can provide wonderful result.
