Before and After
This patient wanted these three worn amalgam restorations (A) replaced. They were removed and the teeth were prepped for conservation (B). Stained and glazed CEREC inlays and onlays (C) provide seamless and natural esthetics (D).
Advantages of CEREC
Easy to Use
Realistic, 3 dimensional, 360-degree viewing aspect, coupled with simple, intuitive and precise on-screen tools, allowing us to create a restoration that goes from prep, to design, to placement - all in minutes and all at chairside.
Conservative preparations mean less removal of healthy tissue. Additionally, immediately bonding the final restoration creates a stronger restoration, and - unlike a temporary - reduces the risk for further damage to the prep. Also, in cases where a traditional crown would have been required, a CEREC onlay offers a structure-preserving alternative.
Proven Long-Term Clinical Success
A 96% success rate after 9 years with over 200 studies conducted. The final proof is in the clinical success - these numbers are matched only by gold restorations. More than 9 million CEREC restorations have been placed worldwide since inception - one every 20 seconds!
CEREC ceramics are unmatched in replicating the characteristics of natural tooth enamel, including wear properties, flexural strength, and thermal expansion.
CEREC 3D enables dentists to cover all single-unit applications. All restorations - from simple inlays to posterior crowns, veneers and anterior crowns - can be designed and machined chairside.
A convenient single visit, conservative preparations and esthetically pleasing results that last - it all adds up to total patient enthusiasm and satisfaction.
