Instant Smile ....Instant teeth with Cerac Crowns

CEREC SAME-DAY CROWNS – Technology available in the offices of some cosmetic dentists enables them to provide “Computer-assisted design-Computer-assisted manufacture” crowns, or “CAD-CAM.” The company that is foremost in this technology is CEREC. This crown is milled by a computer to fit your tooth precisely, thus eliminating the laboratory step in manufacturing the crown.

With CEREC’s CAD-CAM technology, the crown is made by a computer while you wait, thus eliminating the second appointment and the temporary crown. These CEREC crowns are milled out of pure ceramic.

CEREC technology can also be used to manufacture porcelain fillings (porcelain inlays). They are considerably more expensive than composite fillings, but are also more durable.
