Cerec 3D is one of the most significant advances in dental technology.

Provides Significant Benefits

Cerec 3D is a computer milling machine which provides significant new benefits:

  • Protects and preserves your own tooth’s structural integrity
  • Ceramics are bio-compatible
  • Only one appointment (as opposed to the two week industry standard)
  • Perfect looks
  • Perfect comfort
  • Perfect quality
  • Long lasting and durable
  • Cost effective
  • How it Works

    Step One

    The defective filling and decay is removed. A reflective powder layer prepares the tooth for imaging.

    Step Two

    An optical 3D image is acquired with a small camera, directly in your mouth.
    The restoration is created on the screen using the image data.
    Diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block to reproduce the design.
    This is accomplished during a single appointment using Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM).

    Step Three

    After polishing, the new restoration fits precisely.
    A unique light hardens the bonding material uniting porcelain and tooth.
    Polishing or glazing ensures a pleasantly smooth and natural feel.
    The color and appearance make the special ceramic material blend with your tooth.
    Perfectly bonded porcelain ensures an extremely long life for your teeth.
    Maximum strength, great looks!

    The Cerec 3D milling unit is used on the following types of procedures:

    Fillings (inlays/onlays)

    After Decay and old filling material is removed…
    The individually manufactured ceramic will be fitted exactly.
    Depending on severity, the whole procedure will last between one and two hours.

    Crowns

    For more heavily comprised teeth, a traditional treatment has been a crown restoration, which can take several separate appointments . Using the CEREC method, crown restoration is completed in a single appointment. No impressions, no temporary crowns–no need for a second injection.
    A treatment time of one to two hours is normal.

    Veneers

    Malpositioned and discolored teeth can be restored with porcelain veneers.
    Your tooth is adjusted and a thin layer of porcelain is bonded securely to your teeth.
    Perfect looks, perfect fit make a wonderful, natural smile–all in a single appointment.
