What is CEREC?
CEREC is an abbreviation for Ceramic Reconstruction, and Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC is the technology that has made it possible for dentists to perform procedures that were previously considered complex and lengthy, conveniently in a single appointment with better precision, quality and efficiency.
CEREC is a CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture) based technology. This means that the dental surgeons can use the software to study, design and fabricate a number of different ceramic restorations based on the patients’ individual cases, inserting/fixing them in the oral cavity the very same day. Some ceramic restorations that are being designed at dental clinics using CEREC include crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays.
Some of the most prominent advantages of opting for CEREC restorations over conventional dental laboratory-manufactured restorations include:
- Unmatched precision and accuracy
- Design, fabrication and insertion of restoration in a single appointment
- Exceptional aesthetics and biocompatibility
- Comfortable, painless and convenient procedure for patients as well as dentists
- Digital mapping of the oral cavity eliminates discomfort that was associated with impression taking, and is twice as accurate
- Lifespan of CEREC restorations is greater than those fabricated manually in dental laboratories
