CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a method of CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), dentistry developed by W. Mörmann and M. Brandestini at the University of Zurich in 1980 for creating dental restorations. Using CAD/CAM, this process allows dentists to construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations directly at the point of treatment (chairside) in a single appointment, rather than over multiple appointments with labside work in between.
At Donato Dental, we use CEREC to restore decayed teeth, replace or place crowns, remove defective amalgam fillings, or place cosmetic veneers, all in just one appointment.
Unlike other materials such as amalgam or gold, ceramic is more biocompatible and boasts tooth-like physical and aesthetic qualities.
In addition, digital impressions are more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions. This allows you to have the highest quality, most lifelike dental restorations, in only one visit.
