CEREC (CAD/CAM) Dental Crown in One Seating

Aug 17, 2007
In the past, the traditional methods for creating tooth-colored restorations, crowns, and veneers involved a series of dental appointments and final fabrication of the restoration by a dental laboratory. Today CAD/CAM allows your dentist to custom-fabricate any of these in the office and cement them in place - all in a single appointment.

CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world's only system for the manufacture of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC at your dentist's side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer. For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. So, why are people worldwide selecting the CEREC restorative technique for their dental needs?

The first step in using dental CEREC CAD/CAM is tooth preparation. The second step involves taking an impression, not by pressing a soft material over the tooth, but by taking an impression with a special camera that sends the prepared tooth's exact dimensions into a computer.

The restoration is next designed with the aid of a computer, and then your dentist selects a material that is colored to match your specific tooth. The material is then placed into a miniature milling instrument. In just a few minutes it produces a precise, custom-fitting restoration.

Finally, the new CEREC restoration is test-fitted, color adjusted, and bonded in place. After your bite and fit are checked, you'll have a new, CAD/CAM restoration - in just one appointment.

A CEREC tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it is also sound. Many years before, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, your dentist can utilize strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials virtually match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. So, your tooth does not crack, and you can go on enjoying your evening. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.

A tooth-colored restoration means no longer silver fillings discoloring smiles. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. We no longer need to produce temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated. The CEREC has taken over a decade of clinical research and documentation to support the application. The restorations have been proven precise, safe, and effective.

Worldwide, a CEREC restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of almost 20 years, this equipment has helped dentists put over 6 million restorations. Using metal free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC offers you the highest quality restorative care. Ask your dentist today about single visit CEREC restorative care!
