CEREC is fast, safe, and provides a natural-looking restoration that will stand the test of time.
CEREC does more than just crowns – this revolutionary system is also used for inlays, onlays, and new fillings.
What is CEREC ®?
CEREC® is the world’s first system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC®, Dr. Love can complete your permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer in just one quick visit!
CEREC ® means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth.
Why choose CEREC?
A significant benefit of CEREC is that uses all-ceramic material that is durable and biocompatible with your teeth. In other words, it is safe and is resistant to wear.
CEREC also allows your dentist to save more of the healthy tooth structure. Teeth that would have previously been lost can now be restored with CEREC inlays and onlays. This is because CEREC’s state-of -the-art bonding requires only a small amount of tooth structure to restore the tooth to it’s full function.
Another advantage of CEREC is that the entire procedure is done in one visit, from start to finish. There is no impression, no temporary and no second appointment for placement of the permanent crown.
How does CEREC work?
First your dentist will examine your teeth to determine what type of restoration is best for you. After tooth preparation a digital impression of your teeth is taken using a intra-oral digital video camera. The image is transferred to the computer, where your restoration is designed using computer aided design (CAD). This technology takes every clinical detail of your case into consideration, creating the most precise restoration. Next, these exact specifications are sent to our in-office milling machine. In approximately 15 minutes, this state-of-the-art device fabricates your custom, color-matched restoration.
Finally, your restoration is fitted, polished, and bonded in place. The entire process only takes 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of your dental work. Today, more than 20 million CEREC restorations have been completed worldwide, and this number keeps growing. CEREC remains one of the most trusted methods of restoration within the dental community, and for good reason!

Second, the restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It’s metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
