CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes.  CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain.  It is for this reason that they are stronger than laboratory restorations, which are layered porcelain.  The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit.  In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.



The procedure for placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple.  The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth.  The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture.  The tooth is then sprayed with a very fine powder.  This allows the digital camera to take an acceptable image.  Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D.  This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you.  Once the design is completed, the CEREC will mill the restoration.  This step takes about 15 minutes. After the crown is milled we will try the crown on to make sure we are sure we like the fit, shape and look of crown. We then glaze and bake the crown in a high tempature oven. This step takes about 20 minutes. After the crown is done baking we cement the crown and you leave with a healthy new tooth!

Having advanced training in the Cerec software, Dr. Dawson can place same day tooth colored crowns. This process requires less chair time, less appointments to schedule and no more awful looking temporary crowns.
