CEREC© One Visit Restorations
CEREC© is an acronym for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics.
We offer the possibility of same day crowns with CEREC® in-office milling capabilities, another truly revolutionary concept. This means that in one visit (not two), a restoration is scanned (No more traditional impression material!), designed, milled and completed. This field has been driven by a merging of software advances and material science. Studies indicate that restorations of this type (high strength metal-free ceramics) offer a high level of esthetics, fit, and predictability with the convenience of avoiding any temporary restorations and a second visit. As a centralized in-house milling facility, this also offers the opportunity to fabricate various types of temporary crowns, implant restorations, implant surgical guides and even porcelain laminate restorations with careful patient case selection. Although this technology has actually been utilized for 30 years, we now have a better understanding of how the accuracy, fit, esthetics (can create more natural restorations) and newer material choice offer our patients similar, if not better than, lab-based outcomes in a significantly more time efficient manner.
