"The one appointment crown"

CEREC - stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic

These are porcelain restorations that are fabricated using CAD-CAM technology....

         .... where a digital picture of a tooth prepared for a crown  is taken by a camera connect to a computer

         .... that picture is then used to design the crown on the computer

         .... the image of the designed crown is sent to a milling chamber

         .... where the crown is milled from a block of solid porcelain to within 10 microns of accuracy - that's pretty accurate!

         .... the crown is tried on the prepared tooth, polished and cemented.

..... All in one appointment - simply AMAZING !!!
