Restoring your teeth with traditional porcelain dental restorations can boost your confidence and give you a smile you love. However, the dental crownsprocess can be long and drawn-out, requiring several appointments with your dentist. Luckily, CEREC, or CEramic REConstruction, can help you overhaul your smile with ease in only a single dental appointment. Find out more about CEREC and what it can offer with Dr. Robert Wyler in Waukesha, WI.

What can CEREC do for me? 
CEREC uses a state-of-the-art digital system to create porcelain dental restorations right in their office in about an hour. This process, usually reserved for a dental laboratory who creates the restoration by hand over the course of about two weeks, is normally a two-visit procedure. However, CEREC makes porcelain dental restorations like crowns, bridgework, and veneers a fast, easy process requiring only one visit to your dentist’s office.

How does CEREC work? 
CEREC uses a computer program, special wand which takes a 3D model of the mouth, and the actual CEREC machine which carves the restorations from a block of ceramic using a laser. Before creating your CEREC dental restoration, your dentist will prepare the tooth to receive the restoration, whether a crown, bridge, veneer, inlay, or onlay. Then, your dentist takes a 3D model of the mouth and sends it to the computer program. The program allows your dentist to design and customize a restoration especially for your prepared tooth. With the design complete, your dentist sends the information to the CEREC machine, which creates the restoration itself. From start to finish, the CEREC process takes about an hour, not including time spent on preparation or actually placing the restoration.
