How does CEREC work?
CEREC incorporates CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, featuring a camera, computer and milling machine in one entire instrument. The cosmetic dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate impression of the damaged tooth.
This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a colour computer screen, where the dentist uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically crafts the restoration with you await comfortably at the dentist’s office.
Finally, the dentist bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth - the entire process is completed in one visit.
What does CEREC dental technology mean for the patient?
CEREC is paving the way for the future of one-visit smile makeover. A tooth-coloured restoration means no more discolouring smiles. The dental crown is as natural-looking as it could be, compatible with tissues in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. Cosmetic dentists no longer need to create temporary crowns or take impressions and send them to a lab.
For this reason, the traditional second visit to the dentist has been eliminated.

- One appointment is required
- No impressions, no temporaries, no metal
