Have you ever heard of CEREC? CEREC technology is highly effective in the use of oral health care treatments such as dental fillings and dental crowns. Using CEREC technology, dentists are able to reach new levels of oral health care efficiency and durability.

A dental crown is used to cap a damaged or unsightly tooth that needs to be covered and protected. In days gone by, dental crowns required a dental impression to be made of the tooth, from which a dental crown could be crafted and designed. However, it required sending it out to a lab, which could take weeks on end. In the meantime, a temporary crown would need to be used, which were not customized and were often uncomfortable. However temporary crowns are no longer necessary as CEREC technology can be used to create same-day crowns.

Using a highly specialized computer and computer-assisted technology, CEREC crowns can be crafted at your dentist office. On the same day you come in for an exam, you could end up leaving with your CEREC crown. Furthermore, CEREC technology is also highly effective for dental fillings. If you need a cavity fixed, CEREC technology can provide you with a filling that can match the natural color of your teeth and prove to be more durable than a standard composite filling.
