Cerec AC - Restore Your Smile, Keep Your Schedule

No TemporariesÖ No Messy Impressions...
One Appointment!

CERECģ technology allows your team of professionals at Riverís Edge Dental Clinic to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic (all-porcelain) restorations right here in our office and all in a single appointment! No temporaries or second appointments are necessary and the esthetics are beautiful!

In one appointment we can diagnose and prepare a damaged tooth, create an optical impression of that tooth and use CEREC technology to design and mill a precise and beautiful restoration, which is then bonded to your tooth.

 What is CEREC?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CERamic REConstruction. Translated, it means that your Riverís Edge Dental dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth and provides the long term strength you desire.


How does this technology work?
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one interconnected piece of technological equipment. Your Riverís Edge Dental dentist will use a special high tech camera (Blue Cam) to take a precise set of images of the prepared tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where they will use 3-D CAD technology to design the restoration right before your eyes. Then CAM takes over and automatically fabricates the restoration in less than ten minutes. During this short milling process you can spend your time watching a movie from our DVD library or perhaps enjoying some time of relaxation or, if you choose, you can watch your beautiful new crown be fabricated right before your eyes. Youíll be amazed when you watch this technology! Finally, the restoration will be bonded to the surface of your tooth allowing you to once again have a strong, healthy and beautiful smile in just about an hour.


What does this innovation mean for the patient?
A tooth-colored restoration means no more unsightly restorations that will detract from beautiful smiles. The restoration is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. No longer is there a need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab and wait weeks for a final restoration. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated. CEREC has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.

How can I find out if this is an option for me?
Call your friends at Riverís Edge Dental Clinic, as we will be happy to answer all of your questions about this incredible new technology.
