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.
Computer-aided design technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full-color computer monitor right before your eyes!
CEREC then 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 two decades of clinical research and experience support the CEREC technology. Dentists have performed over four million restorations worldwide.
