CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the first computer-aided system in the world for creating dental restorations – crowns, bridges, onlays, veneers, and inlays – in the office - in just one visit.
How it works is that we make a digital scan of your tooth. The computer creates a 3D model on the screen.
Your tooth’s exact dimensions are measured and a custom porcelain restoration is milled to those dimensions right in the office.
Since 2001, Dr. Pang has placed thousands of Cerec Crowns, Onlays, Bridges, Implant Crowns, and Veneers.
With Cerec, Dr. Pang can ensure Biocompatible ceramics are used for your restoration.
- An optical 3D image is acquired with a laser scanner
- The restoration is created on the screen using the image data.
- An onsite milling unit creates your crown or onlay from a ceramic block.
- Finally, a restoration to match and blend with your other teeth.
