CEREC technology is a computer-aided ceramic restorative technique. Basically, we take an optical impression of the damaged tooth and scan it using advanced German software. The file is then sent to a machining chamber which will then model the porcelain restoration.
Prior to insertion, we take care to polish the restoration so that it looks natural and aesthetically pleasing. Then all that remains is to fuse the restoration with the tooth. From modelling to placement in the mouth, patients can benefit in a few hours from a permanent and personalized restoration (inlay, crown, crown on implant, bridge).
In addition to having a healthy and natural appearance, CEREC technology makes it possible to treat cracked or fractured teeth, to solidify non-vital teeth (having received root canal treatment) or simply to strengthen severely compromised teeth with large amalgam fillings (grey fillings) in a single visit!
