Technology > CEREC®
Getting a traditional crown, veneer, or other restoration is often uncomfortable, involves messy impressions, and takes weeks to finish.
With the advanced CEREC system, your dentist uses a digital scanner to design and fabricate a restoration in the office in a single visit.
Sound too good to be true?
Treatment with CERECTYPICALLY TAKES AN HOUR OR LESS
No Messy Impressions
With CEREC, you skip the impressions altogether, meaning no uncomfortable trays, no slimy impression material, and no jaw pain.
No Follow-Up Appointment
Unlike conventional restorations, CEREC treatment can be completed in a single day. That means no waiting around for your restoration and no annoying second trip to your doctor’s office.
Take a look at the CEREC system…
In-Office Fabrication of Metal-Free Crowns and More
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is an innovative system which uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to design and create restorations in just one visit. Developed by Dentsply Sirona, CEREC creates high-quality, metal-free dental restorations, including crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

But are restorations made in the lab better?

Will my CEREC restoration look the same as something made in the lab?
CEREC Makes Beautiful, Natural-Looking Restorations
This patient’s worn, misshapen, and stained teeth were treated with CEREC restorations for a dramatically improved appearance.
Ok, but they must be more expensive…
CEREC Restorations Cost about the Same as Those Made in The Lab
In general, ceramic restorations made in your doctor’s office with the CEREC system cost roughly the same as those made at an off-site lab. For example, an all-porcelain crown made in a lab typically costs $800 to $3,000. Costs for CEREC crowns also start at about $800. While the initial cost of your CEREC crown may be higher, you will likely save money on other fees.

The final cost of your restoration will depend on a few factors, including the type of restoration you need and your doctor’s experience.
Alright, I’m sold. How do I get started?
