What is CEREC® Technology?

CEREC dental technology allows dentists to provide same-day restorations and cosmetic procedures such as crowns, partial crowns, veneers, and dental bridges that can both look great and provide superior strength compared to other restorations, all in a single appointment. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, which essentially means that when you need a restoration, it can be made for you in our office.  CEREC technology offers advanced restoration options with less waiting time and fewer office visits.

Benefits of CEREC®

CEREC technology offers many benefits to patients:

Saves time. CEREC same-day services save you time and trips to the dentist. Your tooth can be prepped and fitted with a restoration in as little as one appointment.

Looks natural. CEREC restorations are made of a special type of ceramic called porcelain that resembles natural tooth enamel in texture and sheen.

Restores function. A CEREC restoration can restore a severely decayed or damaged tooth so that it functions like a healthy tooth again.

Easy adjustments. If your CEREC restoration doesn’t fit properly the first time, adjustments can be made easily in the office so you can still go home the same day with your new smile.

No temporary crown. Without CEREC technology, your crown would be made in a lab and shipped back for fitting. You would wear a temporary crown in the meantime while you wait a few weeks for your crown to come back. CEREC technology eliminates this inconvenience.

No goopy impression material. CEREC impressions and molds are done using a digital Intraoral Imaging and Scanning system, eliminating the need for the old-fashioned goopy impression material. This makes your visit much more comfortable.

CEREC® Same Day Restorations: What to Expect 

Using our CEREC Primescan 3D intraoral scanner, digital impressions are created without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort. Once the digital image of the area to be treated is ready, CEREC's advanced 3D technology will analyze the interaction of the restoration and your other teeth and then design the new ceramic restoration. Once polished, the new restoration will be seated in your mouth on the same day. Your new ceramic restoration offers strength that may surpass those restorations produced in a dental lab.

Frequently Asked Questions About CEREC

What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s a mouthful, so we just refer to it as CEREC or same-day restorations. CEREC is a system that allows us to use computer-aided design (CAD) technology to design your restoration and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to fabricate it right in our office for better, faster results.
How long does a CEREC restoration last?
CEREC restorations can be expected to last as long as a traditional lab fabricated restoration, which is an average of 10 to 15 years, but it’s not uncommon for them to last for decades. CEREC restorations are quite strong and durable.
Are CEREC restorations as good as traditional restorations?
With a skilled cosmetic dentist, you can feel confident that your CEREC restoration will be just as good as a lab fabricated porcelain restoration. We take great care to design a restoration that blends in naturally with the rest of your smile, so no one will suspect your tooth isn’t your own. CEREC restorations are also just as strong as lab fabricated porcelain restorations. With a same-day restoration, you get all of the benefits of a traditional lab fabricated porcelain restoration with none of the downsides.
Is CEREC more expensive?
No, many patients are surprised to learn that CEREC restorations do not cost more than a lab fabricated restoration. With only one visit, most patients save money by only having to take off work one day to get their restoration.
Are CEREC restorations covered by insurance?
Yes, dental insurance covers CEREC restorations the same way they cover any other dental restoration. Prior to scheduling your dental restoration procedure, our billing coordinator will provide you with an estimate of what your insurance plan covers and what you’ll need to pay out-of-pocket.
How long does a same-day restoration take?
Same-day restorations usually take about two hours from start to finish, which includes time to prepare your tooth/teeth for the restoration, the fabrication, and the final placement and bonding. Don’t worry, your mouth is not open the entire time.
