CEREC has revolutionized the way our practice can deliver treatments to patients who are in need of timely and aesthetic restorations, such as dental crowns and veneers. The high-tech equipment used in CEREC allows Dr. Stephen Huber to restore damaged teeth in a single visit. The result is a beautiful, natural-colored restoration that is much stronger than before.
What is CEREC?
CEREC means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth. CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
CEREC offers you advantages
First and foremost, the restoration can be performed in a single session. With CEREC, there is no need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab. We will not inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit.
Secondly, the restoration is natural-looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It is metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor 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.
