CEREC® is a single-visit restorative solution that helps Dr. Schlang to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic restorations.
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology that incorporates a small, hand-held camera and a computer in one instrument, and a milling unit to mill restorations in-house. The camera is used to capture the 3D image of the affected tooth/teeth and the surrounding area. This image is then displayed on a computer screen where Dr. Schlang then uses the special CEREC Software to create the perfect restoration. Once the virtual restoration is created, the information is then sent to the milling unit via software and milled onsite within 10-15 minutes.
CEREC offers natural-looking crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays that are compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. The days of temporaries, messy impressions and waiting days for the lab to return the restoration are history. CEREC has three decades of clinical research and documentation to support our technology, and restorations completed with CEREC have been proven precise, safe and effective.
