CEREC Restorations

CEREC Restoration at your Crystal Lake dentist

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceremics) allows Crystal Lake Dental Associates to design, create and properly fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a remarkably short amount of time. Previously, this process could take as long as two weeks or more to complete, however with CEREC, you can enjoy a bright new smile in a less than an hour!

CEREC

How does the CEREC Process Work?

  • First, the target tooth is prepared for the crown or veneer. However, a digital picture is taken instead of using impressions, which is then converted into a 3D model of your tooth.
  • Using the 3D rendering, your crown/veneer is designed and created using a fabrication machine.
  • The crowns/veneers are fabricated from ceramic blocks, which are available in a variety of shades to precisely match the color of your other teeth.
  • The completed crown/veneer is then polished and correctly fitted to the target tooth. Once properly fitted, it's cemented into place. Now you have a brand new tooth in one visit in less than an hour!

Why choose CEREC?

  • The process can be completed in one visit in a short period of time, so it saves you the hassle and time of several appointments.
  • The crown or veneer is created in-house by Crystal Lake Dental Associates, so we have complete control of how it will be designed and fitted.
  • No need to wear temporary crowns or veneers while the final product is being created in a lab, with CEREC, your final crown or veneer is fitted that same day.
  • As compared with other standard, lab-made restorations, there's little to no difference in the total price of CEREC since no lab fees are included and you only need one appointment.
