Dr. Natalie Amann DDS, MAGD is your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade pressed ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process
First, your doctor will meet with you to discuss the details of the procedure. During the procedure, the doctor will apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your prepared tooth and will use a special camera to take a digital photo of your tooth. Using Computer Aided Design, the digital photo serves as a “map” to design your tooth’s restoration. Then, CEREC will use diamond burs to to create your restoration piece out of the specialized pressed ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
