CEREC or ceramic reconstruction is a process that protects and preserves your original tooth while being the most cost effective restoration that is available today. CEREC offers the perfect look, quality and comfort while being long lasting and durable. And it only takes one appointment to complete.
The process starts with the original filling and decay being removed and a reflective powder used for imaging is put in. An optical 3D image is acquired with a small camera in your mouth. The restoration is created on the screen using the image data and diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block to reproduce the design. After polishing, the new restoration fits precisely and with glazing the tooth has a smooth and natural feel.
