What is CEREC®?
Although the CEREC® Prime Scan is new, we’ve been using the CEREC® system for years.
CEREC® stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” The system uses computer-aided design (CAD) technology and software to design and create permanent dental restorations like crowns, veneers, onlays, and more. The machine itself includes a camera, computer, and milling instrument.
In the past, making single tooth restorations required multiple visits, but with CEREC® it takes only minutes. You can get a crown, for example, in only one visit! Plus, it also means we don’t have to take physical impressions of your teeth, since CEREC® uses digital imaging.
