CEREC is a high-tech device used to design and manufacture ceramic tooth restorations at the dental practice while the patient waits. The CEREC equipment comprises a digital infrared camera for obtaining an optical impression of the damaged tooth, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to help the dentist design the ideal restoration for the clinical situation, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology that uses two high-speed diamond burs to mill a precise restoration according to the CAD software specifications. The milling process is completed in less than 10 minutes and after it is tried in, it is stained and glazed in the office! The entire restorative procedure is usually completed in a single appointment which means no second time getting numb or dealing with a temporary for weeks.
