The CEREC Machine

Typically a crown takes 2 visits, with 3-4 weeks in between visits. Using CAD/CAM technology, the CEREC machine combines use of a specialized camera, computer, and milling machine to create a precise ceramic, tooth-colored crown in a single visit. In addition to the time-saving features, the added benefit is that we are able to salvage more healthy tooth material resulting in a stronger, more natural result.
