Getting a traditional crown, veneer, or other restoration is often uncomfortable, involves messy impressions, and takes weeks to finish.

    With the advanced CEREC system, your dentist uses a digital scanner to design and fabricate a restoration in the office in a single visit.

    Sound too good to be true?


    - No Messy Impressions – With CEREC, you skip the impressions altogether, meaning no uncomfortable trays, no slimy impression material, and no jaw pain.

    - No Follow-Up Appointment – Unlike conventional restorations, CEREC treatment can be completed in a single day. That means no waiting around for your restoration and no annoying second trip to your doctor's office.

    - No Uncomfortable Temporary Restoration – Instead of struggling with a temporary restoration that doesn't fit comfortably or look the way you want, you can walk out of the office with a comfortable, natural-looking crown or veneer.

    A Complete Restoration in 5 Easy Steps

          SCAN - Using a small intraoral camera, your dentist can take precise 3-D images of your smile while avoiding the discomfort of an impression tray.

          DESIGN - The scans are transmitted to the CEREC software, which allows your dentist to quickly design a beautiful, natural-looking restoration.

          CREATE - The CEREC software sends the final design to the in-office grinding and milling unit, an extremely precise device which can craft your restoration.

          REFINE - Your doctor can make chairside adjustments to your restoration to ensure it fits comfortably and looks completely natural.

          PLACE - At the end of your appointment, your doctor will bond the restoration into place, allowing you to walk out of the office with a fully restored smile.

    But are restorations made in the lab better?
