CEREC® Same Day Restorations
CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
Depending on the procedure(s) being performed, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more. Using a special scanner, our office can take a digital impression without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort. The restoration(s) is then designed using advanced CEREC® 3D technology that can analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth. A new crown can be milled out of a solid piece of tooth colored composite material providing strength that may surpass that of many crowns produced in a dental lab. Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.
