Single Visit Crowns

How Does CEREC Work?

CEREC is a camera, computer and precision manufacturing machine all in one. We use CEREC’S built in camera to take a picture of the damaged tooth. Using this image, the CAD (Computer Assisted Design) function of the CEREC designs the porcelain restoration. Then, the CAM (Computer Assisted Manufacturing) function mills the restoration out of a block of porcelain. We check the crown in your mouth to make sure it fits properly before sintering and glazing it in our oven. This process increases the strength of the porcelain and provides the esthetic finish. We then bond the crown/filling to your tooth and are finished! For more information about this amazing technology, visit the CEREC website.
