Your dentist uses the innovative CEREC technology and computer-aided on-site
milling machinery to custom craft your crown from extremely durable and
long-lasting modern ceramic material. CEREC restorations are exceptionally
reliable because the high precision of our scanning machines results in a very
accurate fit for the crown.
The CEREC Treatment Process
After tooth preparation, the dentist makes a digital impression, generally
using an intraoral scanner (or camera). Normally, patients respond better to
digital impressions because they don't require a mouthful of impression
The digital impression is sent to the corresponding designing software where
the dentist constructs the tooth restoration on a screen and then passes on
the finished construction to a milling machine via the office network.
The restoration is milled out of a color-matched ceramic block in just 6 to
15 minutes. The dentist can then add the finishing touches to the
restoration by painting, polishing and glazing it before cementing it onto
the prepared tooth.
Why choose CEREC?
The process can be completed in one visit in a short period of time, so it
saves you the hassle and time of several appointments.
The crown or veneer is created in-house by My Dentist, so we have
complete control of how it will be designed and fitted.
No need to wear temporary crowns or veneers while the final product is being
created in a lab, with CEREC, your final crown or veneer is fitted that same
As compared with other standards, lab-made restorations, there's little
to no difference in the total price of CEREC since no lab fees are included
and you only need one appointment.
