The technology behind CEREC dentistry

Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) dentistry is accomplished by using a medical-grade computer and a CEREC camera. This specialized dental restoration tool is used to create a 3D model of prepared teeth. From the 3D model, the restoration can then be designed on screen, allowing for the reconditioning of decayed teeth, assistance in the placement of dental crowns, the removal of defective amalgam dental fillings or placement of porcelain dental veneers.
