CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

CEREC is a CAD/CAM dental technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor's office.

It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.

Treatment Comfort

CEREC does away with multiple visits often associated with the installation of crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers.

CEREC offers you the comfort and convenience of being able to have a tooth properly restored in a one-visit treatment without discomfort.

Digital 3D imagery technology eliminates the need for taking impressions.

There is no waiting for an outside lab to produce & deliver the ceramic restoration & no followup treatment appointment is required.

Dr. Whitfield will meet with you to examine your teeth to see if your are a good candidate for CEREC. Then, we will discuss the benefits & details of the procedure.

CEREC is Clinically-Proven & Long-lasting

CEREC has been used to place more than 35 million restorations worldwide. Patients can now be fitted with full-contour zirconia in a single visit. This ceramic material has similar strength properties to gold but is tooth-colored.

The CEREC Process

CEREC crowns are created and placed in a single visit.

Your tooth is digitally scanned, and then a 3D model of the finished restored tooth is generated by the CEREC software. This CAD allows us to design a restoration. quickly & easily without compromising precision or beauty.

The finalized design 3D model is used by the computer-controlled CEREC milling unit to quickly fabricate the restoration from a ceramic block to produce the restoration piece immediately.

We then bond the new restoration to your tooth.

A long-lasting, state-of-the-art, clinically-proven tooth restoration in one visit!
