CEREC is a high-tech device which is used to design, manufacture, and deliver all-ceramic tooth restorations in a single dental visit, otherwise known as a same day dental crown.
The CEREC system uses a digital camera for obtaining an optical impression of the tooth that is being treated, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to design an ideal dental restoration, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology to mill a precise dental restoration according to the CAD software specifications. The milling process is completed in less than 10 minutes and the restoration can be delivered in a single appointment.
CEREC can be used to manufacture dental crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, and now even 3 unit bridges. Dr. Schlang also has the ability to restore single unit implants with the CEREC system. All CEREC restorations are made from biocompatible, anti-abrasive and plaque resistant ceramic materials, and are metal free.
