What is CEREC?
CEREC is an advanced technology that means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of your teeth, typically in one visit.
What Are the Advantages of Cerec?
The most important benefit of CEREC is that Dr. Henderson has complete control of your treatment from diagnosis to clinical preparation, to final restoration. In the past, the final restoration was made by a lab technician off-site. By moving all aspects on-site, we can better control the outcome. Dr. Henderson is an incredible dentist with an artistic talent. These skills combine resulting in absolutely beautiful dentistry.
The restoration can be performed in a single visit. With CEREC we do not make an impression which would be sent out to a dental laboratory. This means you will not need to come back for a second visit to place the restoration and you do not need to wear an acrylic temporary crown.The restoration is a natural looking, tooth colored ceramic that we design, mill and glaze in our office. It’s completely ceramic—no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The material is compatible with tissue and has great wear characteristics over time. The results are healthy and beautiful!
