CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, and it is a software that allows patients to receive beautiful ceramic crowns, partial crowns or veneers faster and more comfortably. This is because; the technology allows the dental prosthesis to be created digitally, chairside, without the need for uncomfortable impressions or multiple visits.
Once the dentist has finished preparing the tooth to receive the prosthesis, the teeth are scanned using a camera.
The crown, partial crown or veneer is then designed on the computer and manufactured directly in the clinic .
The finished prosthesis is then fitted precisely into the mouth.
The treatment takes approximately one hour, depending on the case. Patient can now avoid temporary crowns or restorations, follow up appointments and multiple injections. The ceramic crowns, veneers and restorations are strong, aesthetic, biocompatible and if well maintained will last much longer than fillings.
