CEREC is the superior digital chairside treatment experience for dentists and patients alike. It enables dental professionals to manufacture dental restorations in their dental office
What is CEREC?
CEREC is the short term for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction. CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) technology to take impressions quickly and generate a precisely fitted crown or onlay/inlay so that you can save more time for the things you love doing.
How can CEREC help you?
One of the biggest advantages of CEREC is its convenience. If you need a crown, inlay, or onlay, you can get your teeth restored during a single trip to Benassi Family Dentistry. Traditionally, these procedures require two trips or more along with the impression process of different materials. Additionally, CEREC technology also allows us to work on more than one tooth at a time once again, reducing your trips to our practice and saving you additional time.
Another benefit of CEREC is that it uses a single block of solid ceramic materials instead of pressed ceramic and metal. CEREC restorations are able to withstand moderate chewing so yours will last for years. The lifespan of a CEREC restoration is longer than similar work with traditional methods. In addition, the color of CEREC ceramic is closer to the color of your natural teeth, which will make your restoration virtually unnoticeable.
