CEREC® by Sirona Dental Systems is the world's only system for the fabrication of all-ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. Using CEREC® technology, you can have a permanent, all-ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer with just one appointment! This means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn't fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don't have to? With CEREC®, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.
A CEREC® tooth restoration isn't just convenient, it's also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC®, your dentist can use strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. Your tooth won't crack, and you can go on enjoying your day.
Dr. Zhang can use CEREC® for more than just crowns and fillings. CEREC® is capable of producing any single tooth restoration. Chipped or discolored front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC® porcelain anterior crowns or veneers.
Worldwide, a CEREC® restoration is placed every 20 seconds. With a history of nearly 20 years, this equipment has helped dentists place over 6 million restorations. Using metal-free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC® gives you the highest quality restorative care.
