Since 1985 CEREC by Sirona has remained the preferred CAD/CAM technology of dentists worldwide for the fabrication of all-ceramic dental restorations in a single treatment appointment. CEREC is proven by hundreds of clinical studies and is offered by thousands of dentists to millions of patients around the world each year.
Single Appointment 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.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC crown isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than silver amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, Dr. Horne 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 evening. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so healthy tooth tissue is preserved as much as possible.
