CEREC is the most advanced and comprehensive same-day restoration system available. Using an intraoral camera that captures a 3D digital impression of the tooth being worked on, we are able to design and mill the final restoration seamlessly chairside on a computer. This final restoration is delivered the same day, eliminating the waiting period with temporary restorations.
What is a single-visit ceramic restoration?
A single-visit restoration involves a digital impression of the tooth versus the traditional “goop” impression. This allows the dentist to instantly have a working model of the tooth and digitally design the restoration chairside. This final restoration is then milled using an in-office mill, processed, and delivered the same-day to our patients.
How long can a CEREC same-day crown last?
CEREC same-day restorations are made with the same materials used in dental laboratories. Hence the longevity of these restorations does not differ from traditional lab-made restorations. Dental restorations typically last about 10-15 years. However this can vary greatly depending on the degree of home care, consistent regular dental check-up and cleanings, and innate tendencies patients have.
