CEREC – Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is a system, which allows restoration of tooth with inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers only in one visit.  Using strong and highly esthetic porcelain tooth can be restored precisely, rapidly and economically. CEREC combines maximized esthetics and comfort.

How does CEREC 3D work?

The dentist uses an intraoral camera to take a photo of the preparation, the antagonist teeth, and the bite situation. Based on the images, the CEREC software creates a virtual model of the patient’s tooth situation. The dentist uses this model to construct the tooth restoration on the screen, patient can observe how his tooth is being designed. Dentist then passes on the finished construction within the office’s network or sends it wirelessly to a milling machine. Depending on the type of restoration, it is then milled out of a color-matched ceramic block in just 6 to 15 minutes using diamond-coated milling units. The dentist can then add the finishing touches to the restoration by painting, polishing, and glazing it, before cementing it (the more traditional option) or adhesively integrating it, depending on the type of ceramic used.
