What is CEREC?

CEREC – an abbreviation for “chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics – is a system that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to create a high-quality crown in a matter of minutes. Obviously, these one visit crowns in Sylacauga are a lot more convenient for both the patient and the dentist.

How Does CEREC Work?

Dental Crowns

After applying localized anesthesia to keep you comfortable, Dr. Redmond will prepare the tooth to receive a crown. This means removing any decay before reshaping the enamel so that the restoration will fit.

After that, we’ll digitally scan your mouth to create “impressions” without the use of messy dental putty. The information will then be entered into the CEREC machine, which will then mill the crown out of a block of porcelain. Once it’s complete, Dr. Redmond will check to make sure it’ll look natural and fit comfortably in the mouth before putting it in place.
