CEREC is German CAD/CAM (Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Milling) technology. When a crown or large porcelain filling is needed, we use a camera to take pictures of the tooth and use dedicated software to create the perfect restoration for your tooth. Everything is done in one visit in around the same time as a conventional crown. No more annoying temporary restoration and no need to have anaesthetics an extra time. What's more, all restorations done using CEREC are white porcelain with no metal inclusions. Since everything is made in house from start to finish, we are able to produce restorations at lower cost to our patients. It is truly a "win-win" situation. Come and experience this amazing technology for yourself!
